    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters.

    Interview

    They are still on paper applications so I went in and asked if they were hiring. They said yes and handed me an application. I filled it out right away and the manager had some down time so she just interviewed me then and there. It was pretty quick since I already had retail experience and I showed a couple days later for training.
