    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters (Pittsburgh, PA).

    Interview

    Had a quick skype interview with a recruiter and was invited to their office a few days later for the final round interview. The interview involved a project and presenting it to ~20 people in a conference room. These people are in various functions across the department so be careful when presenting your project with your group that you do not say anything that could offend anyone (i.e. the design of something). They watch you the entire time and I truly believe I didn't get it because the other people in my group were so eager and overshadowed me when we were coming up with our project. Just try and standout as much as you can and have good presentation skills.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters (Chesapeake, VA).

    Interview

    I made the mistake of coming in on a Saturday.. Don't do that!! Come in at a quiet time such as a weekday or morning. However, I did save myself by including a resume. I would suggest turning in a resume even if you have little to no previous experience. It might seem silly but it sets you apart. The manager brushed me off until I mentioned my resume, I was then interviewed on the spot and hired.

    Fill out app, asked about how you learn about latest trends, how flexible are your hours, are you willing to work overnights for floorset, take a quiz on personality. Once hired you go through orientation and usually start out in the fitting rooms or room one as a greeter. You might not get many hours at first, but if you make it known that you want to learn how to cashier you will get hours. They typically have one person on the floor during the week and they need a cashier (so that's where you'll get hours).
