    Interview Details

    Found me at my college campus. Called for an interview. Told me to wear a fitted tshirt and jeans for the day of the interview. The interview was a group one which was fine but it didn't feel personalized. Most of us were immediately hired and shown around. The managers were very nice and helpful

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Aéropostale.

    Interview Details

    I printed out an application and applied at the store, I didn't speak to the manager but I talked to a nice sales associate and he told me that they were always looking for new people to hire especially since it was close to the holiday season. All he seemed to want to know about was my availability. I got a call from the hiring manager exactly a week later asking if I was available for an interview the following day in front of the store. She said to dress what I think would be professional but fashion forward and how I would dress for a day of work at Aeropostale. I arrived 30 min early and was the first one there. It was a group interview with two other girls. I answered the questions pretty well and most of the time before the other two girls. She said she would call us back if she was interest in us within the next week.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Aéropostale.

    Interview Details

    Went in with a resume and they told me they were having group interviews later on that evening. I came into the group interview and it was very simple questions why do you want to work here .. Etc. One girl got to the interview extremely late. They said they would call all of us and let us know something. They never called me. I Also found out they offered the position to the girl who was super late... Very unprofessional. And no one shops at aeropostale anymore so it would have probably sucked. They wanted to offer us 4 to 8,hours a week... Waste of time.

    Applied in person. Got a call back for a group interview with manager. We came to the interview dressed casual yet trendy. The manager asked typical retail questions like "why do you want to work here", "give me a fun fact about you", "how would others describe you", "where do you shop"...etc. Make sure you are friendly and upbeat and seem eager to work there.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Aéropostale in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Called and asked if any part-time positions were available and was asked to come pick up an application. Submitted the application next day and was told I would receive a call later that day, but never did, so I called again that same day and was asked to bring in SS Card and License. Next day, met the manager who was in charge and she put me in for Black Friday (I have no job experience) and haven't been trained yet. I was not interviewed, but rather just sat next to her on the computer and just chatted about availability and how busy the days are. Sat and filled out the forms on the computer and was hired!

    Overall experience was great, employees were all very nice and laid back. Manager was extremely nice and friendly.
