    Interview

    I applied online and was asked to take the ethics survey about an hour later. The next day I was sent an email asking to come in for an interview later that week. I went in for the interview and it was a one on one with one of the managers. It was pretty chill and it felt like a conversation rather than an interview. He just asked me to describe myself, why I wanted to work for urban, my availability, and how soon I would be able to start. He pretty much hired me on the spot and told me to look out for an email that same day explaining the next steps. I got an email later that night offering me the position,

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (Seattle, WA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online, went in for group interview a few days later. Me and two other interviewees sat on the couch while the interviewer (the manager) asked us questions from across the table. Each person spoke for a few minutes answering the same questions, mainly about our past job experience and how we handled stressful situations/one funny or memorable work story/ our interests.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters.

    Interview

    Short and sweet. Met with a manager and he asked me questions about my history and my personality. It was very nice of them to hire me since I had no retail experience but since it was a seasonal position I think they're more lenient about that stuff. I appreciate it!

    Interview

    It was a good experience. You fill out the application online. Then you get an email with a link to an online interview. You must have a webcam phone or computer. There would be a question with a video example then you answer the question based on what you watched.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (Newport Beach, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I applied at the end of august and didn't hear back until a couple weeks ago about the job fair they had which was a group interview. After I did that, I got invited to another interview with the store manager. There were about 6 other people there and we all went around and said a little about ourselves and answered about two questions each. After that she told us more about the job and what we would be doing and said she would let us know in a couple days. I haven't heard anything yet but i will update once i do.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (Edison, NJ).

    Interview

    It was relatively easy. A group interview that just looked for those who were current with trends but also knew how to handle that type of jobs during a peak season (i.e. winter holidays).

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (Littleton, CO).

    Interview

    I applied online and got a job interview via my email in 3 days. I think the process was so fast because it's seasonal right now. It was a group interview, there were 3 other people and me. Everyone in the group was very intimidating but I was feeling very confident of myself and how I was answering the questions. Sadly I didn't get the job though.. Probably because I didn't have no experience unlike the others in the group.
