Sales Associate Interview

Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (Montclair, NJ) in October 2016.

Interview

I went into the store to apply but they told me to apply online. After I applied online I got an email the next day for an online video interview. After I did that, in a couple of days, I received a survey in my email. Then I received an email for a group interview but it was in my junk email so they called me a week later asking me to come in for an email. So then I did the group interview with two other people and the manager asked us all to come back for another interview with his boss. Finally, I go to that interview and they called and offered me the position after a few days.

    Interview

    Showed up for a group interview and it ended up being a very easy 30min 1 on 1 interview with one of the managers. The manager was very laid back during the entire interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I did a video interview for UO where a question appears on the screen and you have about 30 seconds to prepare. Then it starts recording and you must answer the question. There's a total of about 7 questions but the last two are not video recorded. (Instead its a written response about work availability and if you took their opinion survey.) Personally, the experience was a little awkward because I'm not used to talking to a webcam on my laptop alone. I wasn't very good at it as I did not get the job.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (San Diego, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    One video interview and two group interviews. They usually do a one on one interview after the original group, but they were looking to hire a lot of people at the time. The video interview was a little weird because you didn't talk to a person. Questions came up and you had 30 seconds to think of your response then like two minutes to give it.

    Interview

    I applied online and was emailed the next day about completing a video interview with Hirevue. Within a few days of submitting that I was sent a 60 question survey about stealing, customer service, job history etc. After that I was called by the hiring manager to set up an in-store interview and at the end of that interview I was asked to attend an additional interview in a few days. After this interview I was offered the job.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email asking me to complete an ethics survey. I got an email a few days after completing the survey asking me to come in for a group interview. The interview was with one other person and we just sat on a couch in the back of the store and answered some questions about customer service and style trends. I got a call the next day offering me the job, it was a really casual and easy experience.
