Part-Time Sales Associate Interview

Application Details

I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed 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!

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.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I went in & asked if they were applying and luckily the hiring manager was there.
    She gave me an application and asked if I've ever worked in retail. I told her that I worked in a portrait studio which was close by and she offered to give me an interview after I finish my application. Questions that she asked me only determined my confidence level and played a role as if I was trying to sale her something as if she was a customer.

    The interview was right at the register and it took literally two minutes. Afterwards, she told me to take a personality test that determines how I am at work as well as outside of work & all the information determines a position that is offered because of your personality. Luckily, my results came up as Sales Associate and she told me that that is exactly what they needed. She asked me if I wanted the job & I said yes. The ironic thing about was that orientation was an hour after I was offered.

    It's an okay job to work at --

    No background check was needed nor a drug test

    Worked for 5 months and decided to quit. Clothing retail wasn't absolutely for me, but a great benefit was the discount of clothes. That's about it.

    interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I only had one interview with the store manager.. The questions were about your experience, education and the most important if you have customer service skills. I had to answer questions like what do you deal with customers? What do you think about customer services? and what is your availability for work?

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed 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.
