    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Aurora, OH
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    They do group interviews in the location I applied, and is set up in fours. Dress casually and you must bring a copy of your resume. The questions were straight forward and also try to stand out in the group and talk more. Also when they ask if the group has any questions, ask anything. One good question to ask is how was their overall work experience in American Eagle.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters in August 2017.

    Interview

    Submitted my application online and got an email 2-2.5 weeks later requesting to schedule an interview. The job posting asked for a sales associate but they were only hiring seasonal. Came 10 minutes early, but the sales associate was unclear of where to direct me to and they were late with the appointment.

    The manager directed me to a mall bench and started the 1 on 1 interview by introducing herself and the company. Asked basic questions from the paper, the manager seemed nice, gave input to my answers to create a relatable vibe. I appreciate the honesty when she mentioned that they do alot of cuts and that the sales were a little slow so I knew what I would get into.

    I was later redirected back into the store where I had to fill out a survey on their site via iPad regarding personality.

    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.

    I applied online. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters (Knoxville, TN) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online, and they contacted me by email about a week later and told me to call the store. I had an interview a week after that, and it was a pretty good experience. This was my first job interview, so I was really nervous. The interviewer was very laid back, so he made it easy and as it went on I became less nervous. Even though I did not get the job I am still glad I had the interview. It was a good first interview.
