    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters.

    Interview

    The interview was around half and hour and somewhat casual. They really just wanted to get a feel for my personality and work experience. They gave me a general over view of the store and how it’s ran, we spoke about random things, I was asked a few random questions, and finally I was challenged to sale an item I didn’t like.

Came in a little early, one of the managers took me to a section of the store in the corner and asked me general interview questions. Afterwards, I was asked to take a personality test on their computer using adjectives to describe myself and adjectives that would describe myself in the position. An hour later, got a call back from the store manager offering me the position.
