6 week course is provided to you to leadn the ins and outs
job training was super fun and easy for everyone. you get to know your managers and your co. workers while learning about AE
You learn new things every shift, and so is your manager, so you are learning the new trends and tactics together helping you bond with your co workers and mangers.
The job training was fairly quick. You can't be nervous to ask questions because if you are they'll move on thinking you had a genuine understanding. I don't think my training was longer than three days.
Training is very very good
it was ok, you need to already know what you're doing coming into the job.
2 day training on how to sell and their policies and procedures
The worst thing about the training at American Eagle Outfitters was the manager/trainer did not the outlined policies and procedures of the organization, thus, training was really lacking. Also, customer service skills were not discussed.
They do take the time to train you on the brand and then once a week you get time off the floor to learn about new products and campaigns so its good in that you have the tools to do well in sales. Improvement could be in dealing with customer escalations
I was trained the Sunday before tax free weekend and was put on register for tax free weekend. I barely knew what I was doing and it was really intimidating.
