    It was pretty easy, they asked very basic questions so just try to express your personality through them. At the end they make you fill out a survey, which kind of gives you a "colour" and sometimes they base hires on certain colours eg/ during holiday seasons they'll hire more 'reds' as they're more outgoing, so good for speaking to customers.

    It was a super easy process. I just turned in my application and a few days later I got a call for a group interview. The group interview was with a bunch of burn outs and so I guess I stood out as they hired me the next day but no one else. It was an easy but boring job, not bad for a college kid.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters.

    Interview Details

    You will more likely be in a group interview with other peers trying to apply for the same position. They will ask you to talk about yourself one by one and you definitely need to make yourself stand out.

    Interview Questions
    • They will give you an item; in my case it was a pen, and ask you to sell it to him. The hard part was trying to make it different than the people who went before you.   View Answer
