    Interview Details

    I met a recruiter at a college career fair and got set up with an interview for the next day. Interviewers were very nice and professional. They asked basic questions about my work experiences and views on their company. It was very trend intensive: they were looking for someone who follows fashion closely and knows their products well.

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at American Eagle Outfitters in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    2:1 interview with one HR representative and a merchant. The interview was entirely behavioral and generally laid back. Both of the interviewers were very friendly, and really just wanted to get to know me. They asked about why I'm interested in retail, any changes I'd make to the AE assortment, my perception of the AE brand, where I shop, favorite high end retailers/designers, etc.
