    Interview

    In store interview with assistant or manager then you will come in for a
    One on one interview with manager! If the manager is impressed then you will have a
    One on one interview with district manager.
    The process took about a month if that!

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Manchester, NH

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Aéropostale (Manchester, NH) in June 2010.

    Interview

    When I went in for my interview I was early and the manager was busy. I asked for her and another girl did too and apparently she accidentally schedule us both for the same interview so the manager took us both in and it didn't seem to bother her.

    I was friendly and outgoing but having had only one job the manager seemed to completely overlook me from the very start. She asked the other girl all about her work experience and I couldn't really do anything while the two of them spoke. When she asked about mine I explained I had been a sales associate before. Once I told her she went back to the other girl and asked her about her schedule and a bunch of other questions that weren't directed at me. In my opinion, she wasn't very professional. The other girl even asked the dress code for the job and the manager used me as an example of what to wear while working (I wore a dress, cropped sweater and nice shoes).

    The manager also told us the hours fluctuated a lot during the week. She told us she would get back to us if we got the job. I asked her if I should call inquiring about it and she just laughed and said not to. She also told me I should consider myself lucky for even getting an interview with them.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Aéropostale (San Diego, CA) in June 2010.

    Interview

    I had a great conversation with the Store Manager of the Plaza Bonita Store. I was then passed on to the DM of the San Diego District and that interview went well, we had a nice conversation. I was then passed on to phone interview with the Regional Manager, she was a princess and couldn't get past the fact that I had to make some decisions from a Store Manager role into an Assistant Manager role due to relocating. She didn't understand why I had took an Assistant Manager job, hello, I needed a job!!!!

    Associate Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Aéropostale in April 2010.

    Interview

    For my interview I sat down with the DM. We talked about the position, my job history, and my leadership style. We talked for almost 2 hours. She was really excited about the possibilities that Aero provides. She didn't ask questions from a script so it felt more like a dialogue.
    2 weeks after my interview with the DM I sat down with the Store Manager. She asked scripted questions about how I would deal with specific situations.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you deal with unmotivated employees, such as part-time high school or college student?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I declined the offer because they actually offered me a different job than what I interviewed for and at a lower salary. It was an awesome opportunity but those two things made it so the job would not have jived with my family situation.

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Aéropostale (Tampa, FL) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Open-ended questions that really didn't have one right answer, they were just looking to see if you had the right mindset to work with high traffic of customers. You HAVE to be a people-person and willing to start random conversations with strangers who come in store and be outgoing and be able to easily identify clothing that they are either looking for or suggest a piece to them.
