    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Aéropostale.

    Interview

    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.

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Aéropostale.

    Interview

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.

    Interview

    My friend worked at Aero and she told me to come in and fill out an application. I went in and filled one out, and the Manager interviewed me on the spot. I got hired right then and there and started work the next week! This is not a normal process though, as most people go through group interviews.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Aéropostale (Orlando, FL) in October 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process includes either two or more interviewees. Of course, they start off by telling you to describe yourself. And then they started to ask odd questions such as what I would order at Taco Bell and what's my favorite movie and why. I guess the real interview is when they actually put you on the floor and tell you to act as if you were actually hired and working.
