Work & Life Balance


Sales Associate/Cashier in Dulles Town Center, VA
on June 26, 2018
Inconsistant Hours
The hours are not really consistent and they pay is pretty low. However, a typical day of work is a lot of faced paced tasks and multitasking. You are given goals each shift which may be a pro or a con for you.
Sales Associate in Woodbridge, NJ
on May 4, 2021
This job was as basic as most retail stores. It came with a nice employee discount but the shifts were short and the pay was minimum wage. For a starter job, flexible and a fun environment.
Sales Associate in Nashua, NH
on May 3, 2021
I really liked working at American Eagle. My coworkers were very friendly which made the day go by faster. There is a variety of different tasks to be done during a work day which helps prevent boredom.
Lead Cashier in Mashantucket, CT
on May 2, 2021
This job started out great! Eventually, the management quality declined drastically to the point where rude 19-20 year-olds were running the store. American Eagle preaches to be inclusive and a "family", but when myself and others had complaints, they were swiftly disregarded. Oftentimes I was the only employee actually out on the floor while others mingled in the break room.
Staff. in Beverly Hills, CA
on May 2, 2021
I was a seasonal employee. They didn't expect much from me and vice versa. The hours were fine as a part time job and they agreed to hire me back for the next holiday season.

Interview Questions

The hiring manager asked me to tell her about myself. She then asked why I wanted to work there, what experience I had, where I take fashion inspiration from, what my availability looked like, and finally if I had any questions for her. It was very short, lasting less than 10 minutes.
