Conversational, kind. It was a group interview (for sales associate). The two women interviewing us were quick to pick up on words, phrases, or points that they liked in our responses to their questions and to give compliments. Their demeanor was pleasant. The interview lasted about an hour. They did not ask unpleasant questions like - tell us about a stressful work experience or a problem with a coworker. Their questions had to do with understanding the customers, store style, and dealing with a full store. We also had a fun activity. We chose outfits for our fellow interviewees.
I was nervous, but that was one of the most pleasant interviews I've ever gone to.

A Department Manager rarely participates in visuals. They may assist in some merchandising if in a smaller store. The visuals are done by the Visual team, which consists of a Visual Merchandising Manager, Merchandisers (depending on the location), Display Coordinator (the individual responsible for building and creating displays), and a Visual Sales Associate (an assistant to the Display Coordinator who is also a Senior Sales Associate). Sometimes there is a Visual Intern who is a sales associate that assists the VSA and DC on certain days and receives college credit for their intern hours (they are paid).

I was slightly embarrased at times because most people either love it or they say anthropologie is overpriced and are generally disapproving about the urban outfitters corporation in general.
