    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters (New York, NY) in September 2017.

    Interview

    The interview went really well. Although it was a waste of time because I wasn't offered the job because I wasn't available enough days out of the week. I wish they would've explained that to me before spending nearly 2 hours at the interview.

    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.

    Part Time Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Oklahoma City, OK
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters (Oklahoma City, OK) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I applied and within an hour I got a call from the store to set up an interview. The interview is overall easy and very outgoing, my interview lasted approximately 8 minutes. The interview questions aren't that difficult, they're usually the same for everyone who I've talked with. They just want to know how much you desire working for them and not hire someone uninterested. You aren' t forced to wear their brand, just something that doesn't show another stores logo.
