I applied in-person. The process took 4 days – interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters (Atlanta, GA).
It was a group interview. Asked is to do a mock sales with customer. Asked about our lives - hobbies, etc. the one thing I found to be weird was that their were other applicants for the job at the interview. Basically they wanted to see how you interacted with people. Don't interrupt anyone, be polite, and dress at least in khakis, nice top or a casual appropriate dress. The other kids wore jeans with holes in them and t shirts to a job interview. None of them were hired.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week – interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters (Atlanta, GA) in June 2013.
Pretty clear cut planning. Set time and date with store manager. Half of interview was typical sit down q&a and described my resume and past experience in detail and informal chatting about outside work interests ( school, hobbies, etc.) other half spent viewing the store and stock room where I was asked how/if I would rearrange or organize things in a more effective way. Relaxed and comfortable interview. Only interviewed once with store mgr.

I applied in-person. The process took 1 day – interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters (Morrow, GA) in May 2012.
The interview was conducted in a group in the back storage area. There were 5 of us total. The questions were fairly simple and something like what you would expect from any employer. The interviewer was very nice, in an overly-excited kind of way,but had the personality that was comfortable enough to approach.
- There were not necessarily any difficult or unexpected questions. However, they did ask "Is the customer always right?" That is quite the thinker. I cannot say that there is a right or wrong answer,that is for you to decide. Answer Question
