    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Antonio, TX
    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. 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 Questions
    • 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

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. 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.

    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. 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 Questions
    • 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

    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. 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 Questions
    • 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

    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.

    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 Questions
    • 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
