Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters (New York, NY) in April 2017.

Interview

Straightforward, was called in after applying online. Went in thinking it was a face to face interview and then found out it was a group interview. Not a fan since answers are piggy backed off and fine tuned If you spoke before someone else.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters (Los Angeles, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I saw a job posting online and submitted my resume through email at a local AEO, I was emailed back telling me to come in for an prescreening the following week. I walked in, was greeted by one of the sales associates who kindly pointed me out to one of the hiring managers, the manager was very brief and asked me a few questions like why I wanted to work for AEO and a little of my background. He then lead me to a computer where I took a short personality test. I was going to go home and wait to schedule an interview the next day, but the manager mentioned how they were offering walk in interviews that same day and asked me if I'd be interested. I said yes, came back 15 minutes for an impromptu interview. I was interviewed by a different manager, he was very polite and informative. It was a group interview, he basically gave a little introduction about AEO and his experience working for the company. He then preceded to asking us multiple questions to get to know each one of us and our background. And that was it, he told us that he would call us the following week if we were hired, unfortunately as excited as I was to work there, I didn't get a call back.

    Interview

    I submitted an application with my resume, and received a call that night to set up an interview for the next day. The interview was very laid back and took place on couches located within the mall. The interviewer was very personable, and it felt much more like a conversation.

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters in November 2015.

    Interview

    Didn't even do a interview with them, hired me on the spot then did orientation with like 6-10 people.and it's not fair training, they pretty much partner you up and you have to either watch or wait for the other person to get done with the stuff before you can.

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters (Brownsville, TX).

    Interview

    I filled out my application and gave my resume to the main manager. He told to come back the next day for an interview. When I arrived, I was taken to the backroom. It wasn't much of an interview, it was more of an immediate hire. I filled out forms and what not. After all of that, I was put on the sales floor to help out as a trial run.

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters (Pittsburgh, PA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Basically, the interview process was simple. After turning in my application I was called back to interview. They asked pretty basic retail questions and nothing caught me off guard. I would suggest having a few buzzwords memorized, things like "responsible" and other things to that affect.
