    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Aéropostale in September 2014.

    Before the interview, make you sure you research who Aero uses for their ambassadors. This changes from year to year. Come to the interview very styled in current fashion trends, business attire isn't acceptable.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a weekinterviewed at Aéropostale in July 2014.

    Interview

    I was promoted internally to Store Manager (started as a sales associate and worked my way up, company is committed to promoting from within). When moving into management it was required to interview with the district and regional manager. Promotion to store manager requires interview with an additional district manager, and another interview with the regional manager. Discussion includes past performance, your interpretation of company strategy, best practices for management, and allows you to ask questions about the position and how to be successful.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Aéropostale (Pittsburgh, PA).

    Interview

    I applied online and was called for an interview some time later. I had heard good things about Aero, so I decided to look into it. I interviewed with the DM and then the Regional , both were face to face. I felt very comfortable and had a good feeling. After a few days, an offer was made and I asked for more money. I did get more, but not the full amount. I gave a start date and have been there since.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Just a few back and forth phone calls. If you play too many cards, you will lose.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Aéropostale (San Diego, CA) in June 2010.

    Interview

    I had a great conversation with the Store Manager of the Plaza Bonita Store. I was then passed on to the DM of the San Diego District and that interview went well, we had a nice conversation. I was then passed on to phone interview with the Regional Manager, she was a princess and couldn't get past the fact that I had to make some decisions from a Store Manager role into an Assistant Manager role due to relocating. She didn't understand why I had took an Assistant Manager job, hello, I needed a job!!!!

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Aéropostale in August 2010.

    Interview

    I was first recruited by a previous coworker at Aeropostale. I believe they have quotas they may need to fill. I interviewed with the DM days later, and it went well. So, she set up a phone interview with the Regional, that also seem to went well. They did ask pretty moderate questions that did get you thinking about yourself as a leader and business runner.

    • How would you describe yourself as a leader?   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    I wanted to get paid more, not just matched.
