    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (San Diego, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    They were moderately quick to respond to my application for the retail sales associate position and to schedule an interview. Interview was interesting. Not the typical questions were presented which I enjoyed and livened up the discussions. Manager was not super responsive so it seemed like I was overwhelming sometimes.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (San Diego, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Process took 3 days to get back to me. They emailed me wanting a video interview. It was relatively easy but awkward, it's just you speaking to a webcam and you'll send it in for them to review later. Be prepared, theres no redos for the questions, once you answer or time runs out it automatically sends. A week later they got back to me with no offer, and just thanked me for applying. For the video interview, since they're finally putting a face to the resume, dress up like an employee from UO usually would. The video interview just really is them trying to get to know you more past the online resume and application. They'll ask stuff about you and see if you fit their image basically.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (Carlsbad, CA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Submitted online application, called in for in-person interview, hired on spot. Very easy interview process, most likely because they needed extra help for the holidays. It gets exceptionally busy around November. The whole process was therefore very fast. I did not wait at all to hear for an offer.

    Interview

    After submitting my application online, I received an email saying to follow up with an online video interview.

Two weeks later, I was emailed again asking to come in for a one-on-one interview where one of the managers met with me and interviewed me for about 25 minutes. He called me three days later and offered me a job. I started working there within 2 weeks.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (San Diego, CA).

    Interview

    I applied online and they called me the next day for a group interview.. The group interview was a little overwhelming because there were about 10 or so people and they were more group interviews scheduled that day... They asked questions like "Whats your style?" and "what are your passions in life?"

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (San Diego, CA) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Apply online, and then you fill out a resume explaining your self- your background, what makes you-you, and your previous jobs. They then send you a link to create an interview video super simple takes no more than 7mins. this same video is then sent to all the urbn stores you want to apply to, so urban- free people- anthro-terrain..
    Once they call you and say you've got the job they ask you to pass a no-brainer test about customer service, and then come in for a one on one interview in person with the manager- which is nothing, just to see if they like your personality in person. So just be super happy.
