Assistant Store Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minot, ND

Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters (Minot, ND) in November 2017.

Interview

They were very flexible with the interview scheduling, I had to reschedule and we ended up doing it during my break at my current job. The guy was a manager from another store and they were hiring all new management. The environment when I came in was so upbeat and friendly! They were really excited to meet me. Since this was a quick interview, he just brang me to the back of the store and asked me very simple questions. Really easy interview! Usually get really nervous about interviews, but the guy was so friendly and nice and made me feel comfortable. (I am currently waiting for a call back as this was just today for me)

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 6 days. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters (Aurora, OH) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I filled out an application online. A few days later I received an email to contact the store to set up an interview. I set up an interview with the store manager 2 days later. The interview was an hour long with the store manager. It was your basic interview questions. We talked a lot about the company and how American Eagle runs. Very informative. She told me she would get back to me either way in 2 days after she completed all interviews and discussed everything with her district manager. Never heard back from her. That is very poor business.

    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.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters in September 2015.

    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.

    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.
