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.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters (Birch Run, MI).

    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.

    I felt extremely comfortable in my interview. The lady I had interviewed with was very friendly and had asked the typical American Eagle interview questions. I had left feeling confident and not worried, mainly because she had made sure I was comfortable and not nervous during the process.

    Interview

    I applied about a month ago online and received an email requesting that I call and schedule an interview. The interview was set up for the following week and that was that. When I arrived at the store, they had a spot for interviewees to wait, which meant it was a group interview. After waiting a few minutes, an assistant manager led me and 4 other girls to the food court for the interview. She asked us to go introduce ourselves and and the interview was easy. It's good to answer first and make sure you pay attention to the other people in your groups answers but don't copy them. After the interview she asked us if we had any questions(always ask a question) and talked about the company. We were told that she'd be making her decision that evening and we'd receive an email either that day or the next. I received an email today(the day after the interview) offering me a position.

    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.
