    Interview

    I applied online, when to a hiring event/ group interview, did the survey and then did the group interview. Not sure why mine seemed so out of order from the rest. Everyone was really nice, and the process wasn't over 3 weeks.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (Lynnwood, WA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Was a group interview. It was really chill and since it was early they provided coffee. It started with finding two outfits to present and "sell". We got to go around the store and pick two ensembles so that was fun. Then the group interview started and it was just really laid back and more like a conversation. The questions were addressed to the whole group and we "popcorn" answered. Overall a really good experience. The managers made you feel comfortable and any nervousness just vanished.

    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.

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Applied for the Pacific Beach location in San Diego, CA. Applied online and received an email to do an online interview through HireVue. Was called into the store to meet with one of the managers one on one. I felt very comfortable, almost as if we were just having a conversation. I was offered a position but declined it for a better paying offer.
    Try to dress trendy for the interview, but still professionally appropriate with the right accessories to compliment your outfit.
