Extremely easy to get and easy to interview. Walked in and the General Manager offered me a job, and of course I wouldf have to go through the interview process formally. I already had the job offer so we just had to go through the steps

    Interview

    American Eagle had a very casual, easy interview process with a fast turnaround. I was just interviewed at my local mall by a manager, asked basic fit questions and the whole thing ended very quickly. Heard back very quickly from the same manager and accepted my offer. American Eagle understands that people turnover quickly since it's driven by part time retail works. The interview process overall was very manageable and not high pressure

    Varies from person to person. My interview was unofficial while dropping off my application. But they often do one on one interview or group interviews depending on the hiring needs.

    Application

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

    Interview

    Group interview, then two months later brought in for a one-on-one interview. Had already started applying and interviewing for other jobs. The group interview was in a food court and very loud, and the one-on-one interview was very unprofessional. The manager made me wait for 20 minutes before interviewing (past the time agreed upon) and made me feel slightly uncomfortable by condescending to me.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    No real negotiation phase--managers were unwavering.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters (New York, NY) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I applied in person with a copy of my resume. Was called 2 days later. Scheduled for an interview the following week. Had a group interview to begin with. Was relatively simple. Most of the group was sent away except for me and another guy. We filled out papers and were given a one on one with a floor manager. They seemed to like and called back 20 minutes later to tell me I got the job.

    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 days. I interviewed 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 weeks. I interviewed 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.
