I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (Scottsdale, AZ) in January 2017.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (Boston, MA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    It was me and one other person in a group interview. The interview seemed very unprepared and only asked us 4 questions, making the interview for both of us a total of 10 minutes. Didn't really get to know us or ask us any questions that weren't on the online application.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milwaukee, WI
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (Milwaukee, WI) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I have applied to Urban Outfitters several times and I honestly am not sure why I kept appliying after the several horrible experience I had. I guess I thought it would be an awesome, creative company to work for.
    The last time I applied I went into the store and asked for the hiring manager. He said that someone would be in contact with me for an interview within a week and if they do not, call. I ended up waiting over a week and called and they scheduled my first interview. The interview went great...I thought. It felt like a friendly conversation. After the interview the manager made it seem like I got the job. He said things like you will probably start after the new year with one other person. We just need you to talk with one more manager! They said they would be calling me within a week so I could speak with the second person. Again they never did.
    I called after two weeks and they said, "oh yes! Can you come in on thursday." Like they had just forgotten but still were interested which seemed very inappropriate to me.I came in for the second interview again it went great. The manager was like well everything seems great we just have to conduct a couple more interviews and we will contact you by the end of the week. AGAIN I waited two weeks with no response so I followed up and asked to speak with the manager I had the interview with. She was not available to speak so they took a message. She never got back to me and a month later I received an email saying, we could not move forward with your application at this time...It was seriously the weirdest series of events. I am glad I did not end up working for them cause they lack respect for their applicants.
