Application

I applied in-person – interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters.

Interview

I applied in store then a few days later got a call back. I was interviewed right at the cash register. It was very weird to be interviewed while customers were shopping but it was my first job so I went with it. I was hired right on the spot. A few days after that I was employed.

    Application

    The process took 4 daysinterviewed at American Eagle Outfitters.

    Interview

    I was walking around the mall and I thought I'd ask if AE was hiring. So I walked in and asked the cashier if they were hiring and he told me that they're always taking applications; he gave me one and advised me to talk to the manager when I return the application. It's my luck that the manager was working at the time so I went ahead and introduced myself. She asked me my availability and asked me to do this survey. After that she scheduled me an interview.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at American Eagle Outfitters (Melbourne, FL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I've always loved AE, so when I was going around picking up applications and applying at places, I stopped by and asked for an application. I brought it back the next day. About a month went by before I heard anything, and when they called they asked me to come in for an interview. It was a group of five girls, including myself.

    The manager took us into the back room where we sat in a circle, went around the circle asking us questions. Overall, the interview was easy and relaxed. She didn't really ask anything out of the ordinary, and she was very nice.

    Interview

    I picked up an application at the store and brought it back a few days later and spoke to the manager. She had me answer a few questions about availability and experience in retail. I was hired on the spot. It wasn't in any way a formal interview and probably only lasted about 15 minutes.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at American Eagle Outfitters (New York, NY) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online for jobs at three different places. About 2 weeks later, I got an email stating that I should attend their job fair at one of the locations in a couple days, so I did. We were told to wear business casual. They said jeans were acceptable i.e. wear american eagle. There was an array of outfits--some were stricter business casual and others dressed more casual like the typical AE employee--either I'm sure was fine. There was a decent line. They called us out and everyone was interviewed one-on-one.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at American Eagle Outfitters (Traverse City, MI) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I applied in person. They called me within a few days to set up an interview. When I went in, the manager had me wait for a few minutes. They were obviously very busy and seemed kind of stressed. She eventually came over and explained that they were having issues with a new system and were super behind. She asked if I could come in later and I agreed. I completely understood. When I came in later that day she interviewed me on the sales floor. It was super relaxed and fun. The interview was a breeze and she offered me a job.
