    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters (Grand Rapids, MI) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The first interview was very simple, I walked in Sunday. Asked for an application, filled it out then went back into the store. The manager then took me over to an open register, looked over my application, and asked a few questions on how would I apply myself if I worked holidays with how it gets stressful. I told her at first I would be nervous and scared, but once I get a grip on what im doing Ill have no problem. She then asked me how my former job related to American Eagle, and I told her I can help teach other employees if they don't understand something, and learn from other employees. The manager I talked to was very sweet and nice. She made my experience at the interview, to really WANT this job. Keep eye contact, and be outgoing, don't be shy. Think about the questions they will ask you and try to not give basic answers.

    Whether or not I would step up to the plate and be a very outgoing person. I had to show and tell her I would be more comfortable once I get a grip on the concept.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters (Jackson, MS) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Interview process was very frustrating. After the initial phone screening with the district manager, i recieved a email to move forward with the OAD exam. Recieved results within 24 hours.. didnt hear back for two weeks, finaly got a email to come in for a 1:1 interview with a nearby store manager, very laid back questions. Just getting to know you questions, nothing business related what so ever. Had three more 1:1 interviews within the next two months following the first in person interview. 6 total .... Waste of payroll in my opinion.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters.

    Interview

    This was an on-campus interview in the day following an internship/full-time recruitment fair. I interviewed for the position of Information Technology Intern. This was a first-round interview so the questions were largely behavioral; that is, the questions were not focused on my technological qualifications, but were instead focused on subjects pertaining to general interpersonal/leadership skills and personal qualifications.
