Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters (New York, NY).

Interview

I applied online and it took a while to get a call back for an interview. I had a one on one interview and was told to dress in casual trendy attire. The interview was very easy going and friendly. Most of the questions revolved around, tell me about your experience, a little about yourself, stressful situations, or what would you do in these types of situations.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The manager was really nice, and the interview was easy. But I applied as a part time sales associate, yet was hired seasonal. Which I don’t understand and am going to ask in orientation. But overall I am very excited!
