    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Fill out app, asked about how you learn about latest trends, how flexible are your hours, are you willing to work overnights for floorset, take a quiz on personality. Once hired you go through orientation and usually start out in the fitting rooms or room one as a greeter. You might not get many hours at first, but if you make it known that you want to learn how to cashier you will get hours. They typically have one person on the floor during the week and they need a cashier (so that's where you'll get hours).

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters (Limerick, PA).

    Interview

    They talk to you and get a biased feel for you while the other manager and associates talk the manager interviewing you over the headset about you. Basically they are looking for a attractive person that can do menial work hour after hour and take some verbal beatings here and there. After that they have you make them an outfit in five minutes, and then fill out a lot of paperwork in the back at a very slow compute. If they don't tell you that you got the job at the interview-you did not get the job, they will not call you back to see

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters (Grand Rapids, MI) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The first interview was very simple, I walked in Sunday. Asked for an application, filled it out then went back into the store. The manager then took me over to an open register, looked over my application, and asked a few questions on how would I apply myself if I worked holidays with how it gets stressful. I told her at first I would be nervous and scared, but once I get a grip on what im doing Ill have no problem. She then asked me how my former job related to American Eagle, and I told her I can help teach other employees if they don't understand something, and learn from other employees. The manager I talked to was very sweet and nice. She made my experience at the interview, to really WANT this job. Keep eye contact, and be outgoing, don't be shy. Think about the questions they will ask you and try to not give basic answers.

    Whether or not I would step up to the plate and be a very outgoing person. I had to show and tell her I would be more comfortable once I get a grip on the concept.
