    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Aéropostale in November 2014.

    Interview

    Called and asked if any part-time positions were available and was asked to come pick up an application. Submitted the application next day and was told I would receive a call later that day, but never did, so I called again that same day and was asked to bring in SS Card and License. Next day, met the manager who was in charge and she put me in for Black Friday (I have no job experience) and haven't been trained yet. I was not interviewed, but rather just sat next to her on the computer and just chatted about availability and how busy the days are. Sat and filled out the forms on the computer and was hired!

    Overall experience was great, employees were all very nice and laid back. Manager was extremely nice and friendly.

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Aéropostale (Orlando, FL (US)) in October 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process includes either two or more interviewees. Of course, they start off by telling you to describe yourself. And then they started to ask odd questions such as what I would order at Taco Bell and what's my favorite movie and why. I guess the real interview is when they actually put you on the floor and tell you to act as if you were actually hired and working.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Aéropostale in September 2014.

    Interview

    My interview was fun and relaxed, the manager seemed friendly and open. I got the job immediately. Started working WEEKS after hired, which was odd. My first day, I received no instruction of what to do and never had a training day like other specific employees. I had to take initiative most of the time because the head manager was too busy sitting in the stock room eating. All she did was yell at targeted employees over the headset because they were doing their job, such as folding clothes, when no customers were around. I was shocked at the rude and unprofessional attitude at the head manager, the others in charge were far more responsible and courteous. I also got disciplined once because the head manager brought her young 13 year old daughter to work in my same position on black friday. She moved me because I wasn't doing anything, when I actually tried to talk and greet the customers but her daughter happened to be in their face each time. I shouldn't have to compete for my job position with a non-employee. Overall, I did not receive notice of when I was terminated and received no reason as to why I was. I feel bad for aeropostale and their company's choice in management.

    Interview Questions

    • There was no difficult question; The interview was more childish than anything and I felt as if I was being interviewed at giggles.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I chose my hours, which was common. I picked every day of the week, and picked reasonable hours because I'm in high school. I showed improvement over time, just as the other managers said consistently, but gained no more than one shift a week.

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Aéropostale.

    Interview

    It was a group interview with about 7 other people, everyone was high school aged. They asked 1 question and each person had to go around in a circle and answer the question. So if you're the last person, someone could easily say the answer you were planning on saying. It was pretty easy going, I think they were just trying to scope out if you could get along well with other people and that you have a good personality.
