    Interview

    Pretty easy. Group interview of 6 people which took place downstairs in the stock room. They asked us pretty simple questions and had us fill out the application as much as we could and our availability. After answering a few questions she called 3 people (who im assuming didnt get the job) and led them upstairs so they could leave. The other 3 (including me) stood while we were chosen one by one to speak with a person from HR who would ask us more questions and eventually offer us a position that day.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters (Garland, TX) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Very fast, much like tennis you had to respond quickly and energetically or else you lost the manager's attention very quickly but the questions were easily answered. The usual why are you applying, what's your schedule like, etc. While all mangers may not be the same mine was a very hit or miss, all or nothing type guy so if you weren't dedicated you were out.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters (New York, NY) in May 2014.

    Interview

    It was first a group interview with 8-10 other people. They asked everyone many retail scenario questions as well as "Why American Eagle?" questions. Then afterward, they interviewed everyone one on one with managers from different flagship American Eagle stores in New York. A manager from the Soho flagship store interviewed me and basically asked me the same questions as in the group interview. Then he offered me the job and I accepted.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    I was informed by a friend that American Eagle Outfitters were hiring for seasonal positions. Two days later, I went into the store and looked around for a bit. I admit, I was a bit nervous to ask for an application but once I approached an employee, he asked, "What took so long?" I replied, "I was also window shopping." It's good to keep in mind that the moment you walk into the store, they look at you and assume you're either shopping or too nervous to ask for an application. Luckily, the employee that I asked for an application turned out to be the Hiring Manager and scored some points with a few jokes here and there. I went out and filled out the application that same day.

    Upon returning, he went over my availability to see how free I am. By now I figured they hire based on availability. He then mentioned that there's going to be two group interviews next Sunday at 1PM and 3PM. I went with 1PM. That following Sunday, I arrived early and scored some more points with the Hiring Manager. It's also good to smile and have some witty lines here and there. But as time passed, no one else showed and I ended up being the only one there. He took me upstairs for a 1 on 1 interview, in which was easy. Questions were, "Why do you want to work here" and "Give me a time where you had both good and bad customer service." I was honest and I believed he admired that. The interview went quick. Midway on him escorting me out, he said that he was taking me on and that I shouldn't look for another job.

    Interview Questions
