    Overnight Stocker Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters (Pittsburgh, PA) in March 2018.

    Interview

    The interview was very informal, she asked about my job experience and availability. It was obvious right off the bat that she didn't look at my application or resume that i attached...
    She also failed to explain that the job i was applying for was one week out of the month, which is sort of a big deal to an interested candidate. She made it seem like it was a full time job when in reality i wouldn't work for 3weeks in a row.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters (San Diego, CA) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Quick interview with manager. I walked in asked for the manager at registers, the manager met me soon after and we went to the corner of the store where she asked me a few generic interview questions, and had me take a quick personality quiz on the tablet. Interview was about 20 minutes, it would've been quicker she just got distracted a lot.
