    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Aéropostale.

    Interview

    I was literally hired the day of my interview and rushed into training. The interviewing DM asked questions for about 10 minutes and then said something to effect of "Well, we need someone ASAP and you're it." That should have been a warning signal.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were incredibly easy, and most were directed towards when I could start and what my salary requirements were versus my actual abilities and experience.   1 Answer

    Typical retail hiring. District manager was not very good. Regional manager was great. They expected me to know what was the trend in the fashion at that time. I was not into fashion so I couldn't tell them. They expected me to know what volume the store was making and I had no clue.

    Assistant Merchandiser Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Aéropostale (New York, NY).

    Interview

    -HR phone screen
    -Met with two people at the same time
    ----------
    -HR was very nice and I was interviewed by two people who will be my supervisors. They changed the interview time the last minute and when I arrived, they did not apologize nor offered water or anything. We discussed my store experience and when I gave my honest feedback, I could tell she did not like me. When I asked how the company is performing financially (they were bankrupt in 2016), this time I could sense that she was upset, as if I wasn't even supposed to ask that question.

    Overall, I knew instantly that the brand is doing really bad because of the management and there is no room for growth/ learning here as they will be no improvement.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Aéropostale in August 2012.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview with HR was very casual just to gather basic information, screening candidates to see if their current experience qualifies them for the position they are applying for, what type of salary they expect, and why they want to leave their current company.
    In person interview was very easy going, typical questions to discuss job functions and assess planning skills. Ex: "How would you plan a selldown, what metrics do you look at to evaluate performance?"

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Phone call from director with the offer. Any negotiations went through HR

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Aéropostale (New York, NY) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Fairly mild, I got to speak with two people in one day. I felt intimidated because manager kept expressing the job wasn't for everyone and how hard it is to juggle multiple catergories. While I was confident I could have done the job well it made me not want to go further.
