    Sales Lead Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters.

    Interview

    Applied for a sales lead position, received a call and met with the manager. Casual interview with the manager who played up benefits of the company, but I should have realized she was the problem with turnover. Was instead offered a manager-in-training position.

    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.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters (Birch Run, MI (US)).

    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.

    Seasonal Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Miami, FL (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters (Miami, FL (US)) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Very easy, laid back, we went to a cafe a few stores down and sat down and had a chat. The interview was 4 other people and me. I was referred to this position by the store manager, so it was fairly easy to acquire a position at the store.

    Inventory Planner Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters (Pittsburgh, PA (US)) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I had an on campus Interview scheduled three days in advance. It was a 30 minute interview with a mix of behavioral questions and standard interview questions (i.e. "what did you learn from a certain experience on your resume, etc.) I had plenty of time to ask the interviewer questions as well. The interviewer was very nice and friendly, she made me feel very comfortable. In all honesty I am not the most passionate about the brand and I think that's why I wasn't a great fit.

    Very unfriendly intimidating interview group. One interviewer insinuated I must have gotten my last job because I knew someone - which was not the case at all. I have never been in a AE store since.
