Part-Time Sales Associate Interview

Part-Time Sales Associate
Oklahoma City, OK

I applied in-person and the process took 2 days - interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters in May 2014.

Interview Details – I came in around 12:30 PM for an application. After I handed in my application at 1PM, an assistant manager told me that the hiring manager does not come until 2PM and said that she'll give me a call later. I was assuming she would call me that day. She didn't and I was worried so I called the next day around 11AM to see if they looked at my application. Another assistant manager picked up the phone and told me to come in for an interview that day at 4PM. Usually I take a day to prep up for interviews like this but after going in and was finally interviewed, it was at all bad. The store I applied for was a factory store (like at an outlet mall), so I didn't really have a group interview as I was anticipated for. It was a 1 on 1 with 2 different assistant managers. The one that told me to come in at 4 interviewed me first and mainly just asked me about my schedule and school so I could work around it. The 2nd assistant manager actually asked me questions that you would expect to be asked at any interview. After being interviewed, I took a personality test on the register (don't worry about it too much). After they looked at the results, I was offered a position!

Interview Question – When were there a time when a customer had a problem with something?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I've look around on sites like Yahoo answers. Most said minimum wage. Minimum wage in Oklahoma is $7.25/hr and I was offered a position at $8/hr. I was happy with $8 so I didn't really try to negotiate.

Part-Time Sales Associate Interview

Part-Time Sales Associate
Vancouver, BC (Canada)

The process took a day - interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters in December 2011.

Interview Details – The interview process was quite casual. I came in to ask for an application form, completed this and then got an interview the same day. During the interview, a few basic questions were asked which was standard and it was then followed by a personality test which gives them an idea of what traits you have. I received a call 2 hours later and got the job! The perception of the company was quite positive, very easy going and nothing too challenging.
