They ask all basic employee questions. They are not very broud with the questions. Its all very plain and straight foward but decent. Wish they would interview managers as managers and not so much as a sales associate.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters (Jacksonville, FL) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Initial interview was with the store manager of the location. It was very laid back and casual. Basically filled out my knowledge of retail and management experience. From there, I was passed on to the District Manager, which was a bit more grueling and arduous. The interview with the store manager was in person, while the DM was over the phone.

    Interview

    Very easy for me, I knew the SM going into it so I kinda had a leg up. She was able to help me through the entire process of my phone interview. I never even had a face to face interview. We talked briefly on the phone then my SM called me and Tom me I had got the job.

    Interview

    I met w/ the district manager. Overall the interview was very lighthearted. She asked me to tell her about my experience and then talked to me a little bit about how they needed help to "turn the store around". Then she asked my salary expectations. I got hired pretty much the next day.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters.

    Interview

    Very simple and straightforward. Typical interview questions asked. Focused on previous management experience. Be prepared to interview with store manager and district manager. Be prepared to speak about past experiences to show leadership skills.

    Negotiation

    DM asked for a recent paystub from current employer to verify income. The company is very salary conscious, tries to get each manager at the minimum amount they will take.

    Interview

    Brought in a paper application. I was called to schedule a job interview shortly after. It was held in the back room of the store. The interview wasn't very long. I think they were looking for a fresh mind to mold into their company culture.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters.

    Interview

    I applied on the American Eagle website. I got a call back about 4 days later. I was a year out of college at this point so it was great timing. I had applied for a position at a certain location, went to that location for the interview, and was met by a store manager of a different location. She insisted she liked me so much that I go with her to her location (double the distance, less pay) instead. Liking my interviewer so much I took the chance. Anyways, the interview took place right outside of the store. The questions were great, having delivered them myself after being hired I would know. They go into detail about past jobs, pluses and minuses about yourself, if you are good in front of a crowd/public speaking, personal hobbies, etc. Its very in depth but very conversational too, which is nice!
