    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Destin, FL (US)

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters (Destin, FL (US)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I walked into the store to ask if they were hiring and grab an application. Brought the application back the next day and after briefly looking it over they told me to come back the following day for an interview. Went in for the interview and it was extremely casual; a 5-10 minute conversation with the store manager by the registers while someone who was training to be a manager observed. They asked me to tell them about myself, why I want to work there, what I hope to get out of the experience, etc. Very basic questions. Was told I would receive a call that night informing me of their decision but I didn't get one for 2 days. However, I ended up being hired.

    Interview

    They ask all basic employee questions. They are not very broud with the questions. Its all very plain and straight foward but decent. Wish they would interview managers as managers and not so much as a sales associate.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters in April 2017.

    Interview

    Group interview with about ten others. I was the first to speak for many questions and the other candidates basically repeated everything I said for questions I answered. The hiring manager seemed to like me. She collected our resumes and asked 6 questions. Then she told us all to fill out applications. Before I was done she picked me and another girl, took us 3 feet away and told us the next step of the application process would be to get an email from one of three hiring managers after they looked at our availability. We said okay and she sent us on our ways. The next day they sent me an email saying "we have offered the position to a candidate who best fits the specific needs of the position". At least they responded back quickly lol

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters (New York, NY (US)) in March 2017.

    It was a group interview and she asked us about 7 questions and we went around and each answered. I was surprised that the second round was the same day, but those of us who moved on had an interview with the managers. It was really fast and easy and they were all really nice.

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters (New York, NY (US)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Applied on Indeed. Got a call a day later. Set up the interview a few days later. Had an interview with the AM because the SM was on a conference call. I had experience so it was basically telling me what I would be doing.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I know retail doesn't make a lot unless you're on commission. I ask for what I made at my previous job and the SM accepted. I feel that 11.00 is definitely a fair starting wage.
