    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters (Edinburgh, IN) in November 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was casual and to the point. I walked into the store and told the first employee I saw that I was there for an interview and she grabbed my application from the back and took me to a jean folding table where we introduced ourselves and went over my application. After going over everything and asking a few questions she told me I had the job and that I'd receive an e-mail with an offer and when my orientation would be.

    The interview was a quick phone call just telling what time to be there and there was no training either. I would recommend this really only as a seasonal job.

    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.

    Interview

    We interviewed offsite. I actually was hired along with someone else. I feel like all you have to do to get hired is seem slightly professional and preppy. We showed up to the information center, answered a few simple questions and went on our way.
