    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters.

    Interview

    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.
