Sales Associate/Cashier Interview

Sales Associate/Cashier
San Antonio, TX

I applied in-person and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Aéropostale in June 2012.

Interview Details – The interview was a group interview. I had it in the bag. The other girls were shy. I was the most talkative and outspoken one there. I got a call back a week later saying i got the job. Went in to fill out all my paperwork, it's a lot of paperwork. Hardly got any training but i caught on quick. It's not that hard to fold clothes. The cash register training was easy as well.

Interview Question – All the saftey questions were unexpected and difficult. there was never anytime to study the list of things they were asking. We couldn't hang out in the back room and we were always too busy on the floor.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They said they would like me to work there i said great when do I start?

Assistant Manager Interview

Assistant Manager

I applied in-person and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Aéropostale.

Interview Details – This was an extremely drawn out process. I showed up for my first interview and was told the SM who was supposed to interview wasn't in that day. The DM called me and rescheduled. I had two interviews before they offered me the job, but both were very strange. I wasn't asked any "typical" interview questions. In both interviews, they just asked me if I had any questions for them. I ended up accepting another offer, and when I called the DM to let her know she was extremely rude. It further assured me that I had made the right choice in choosing another company to work for.

Interview Question – They didn't ask me anything. It was very strange.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I had a better offer from another company, and throughout the interview process the people I talked to were rude.

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Bellevue, WA

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Aéropostale in February 2014.

Interview Details – Easy, really. I brought in my application and the manager gave me a little interview on the spot then hired me on the spot! She was really nice and she made it really chill and easy for me to talk to her. The questions were super easy, something you probably would hear at all retail stores you get interviewed for.

Interview Question – Honestly, there was no difficult or unexpected questions. Every typical question you get asked at retail stores like how to help customers, how to greet, etc.   Answer Question

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Biloxi, MS

I applied in-person and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Aéropostale in April 2012.

Interview Details – They only do paper applications in store. I was called in for an interview, and asked general questions about myself. I did research prior to the interview which wasn't exactly needed.

Interview Question – I didn't expect the interview to be so personal. By that, I mean it was only general conversation. There weren't any questions about the company or my work ethic.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – The manager just said that I would start training the following week.

Sales Associate/Cashier Interview

Sales Associate/Cashier

Interview Details – Very relaxed process which consisted of only one group interview. The people that were hired from the group interview were the most outgoing and had the most thoughtful answers. Do not rush into answering the question--put some thought into it first.

Sales Associate/Cash Wrap Specialist Interview

Sales Associate/Cash Wrap Specialist

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Aéropostale in December 2012.

Interview Details – turned in my application, got a call about an interview that we set up for that next monday got a call back to set up a second interview that took place about 3 days after my first, got offered the job on the spot and began the hiring process that coming weekend

Interview Question – seeing as a lot of the people who apply here are high school students, and myself being in that position when i was interviewing I would say that the most difficult and unexpected question was what I want to do with my future. Many kids don't know and I could tell the manager was slightly bothered that I didn't have any idea of what I wanted to do at that point   Answer Question
