    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters (Pittsburgh, PA).

    Interview

    Had a quick skype interview with a recruiter and was invited to their office a few days later for the final round interview. The interview involved a project and presenting it to ~20 people in a conference room. These people are in various functions across the department so be careful when presenting your project with your group that you do not say anything that could offend anyone (i.e. the design of something). They watch you the entire time and I truly believe I didn't get it because the other people in my group were so eager and overshadowed me when we were coming up with our project. Just try and standout as much as you can and have good presentation skills.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters (Pittsburgh, PA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was a series of meetings with HR department, the CS department director, and the Lead Analyst of the Direct Operations team. Each meeting was approximately 30 minutes and each interviewer had their own questions to ask. Interviews were very informal, and were all 1 on 1 with the exception of one meeting. Based on the interview, I felt a good impression that I had a chance to earn this position. Also based on what I have been told, AEO's HR department works very slowly with new hires.
