    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters.

    Interview

    Applied for a sales lead position, received a call and met with the manager. Casual interview with the manager who played up benefits of the company, but I should have realized she was the problem with turnover. Was instead offered a manager-in-training position.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    They constantly told me to apply every time I walked into the store. I applied twice, once for seasonal and the second was for a part-time position. I checked on my application and they constantly gave me the runaround. I never got called in for an interview either. Hopefully your experience is different.

    Very easy, laid back, we went to a cafe a few stores down and sat down and had a chat. The interview was 4 other people and me. I was referred to this position by the store manager, so it was fairly easy to acquire a position at the store.
