Store Manager

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Aéropostale.

Store Manager
Pittsburgh, PA (US)

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Aéropostale.

Interview Details I applied online and was called for an interview some time later. I had heard good things about Aero, so I decided to look into it. I interviewed with the DM and then the Regional , both were face to face. I felt very comfortable and had a good feeling. After a few days, an offer was made and I asked for more money. I did get more, but not the full amount. I gave a start date and have been there since.

Interview Question – How do you motivate people?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Just a few back and forth phone calls. If you play too many cards, you will lose.

Store Manager Interview

Store Manager
San Diego, CA (US)

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Aéropostale in June 2010.

Interview Details I had a great conversation with the Store Manager of the Plaza Bonita Store. I was then passed on to the DM of the San Diego District and that interview went well, we had a nice conversation. I was then passed on to phone interview with the Regional Manager, she was a princess and couldn't get past the fact that I had to make some decisions from a Store Manager role into an Assistant Manager role due to relocating. She didn't understand why I had took an Assistant Manager job, hello, I needed a job!!!!

Store Manager Interview

Store Manager

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Aéropostale in August 2010.

Interview Details I was first recruited by a previous coworker at Aeropostale. I believe they have quotas they may need to fill. I interviewed with the DM days later, and it went well. So, she set up a phone interview with the Regional, that also seem to went well. They did ask pretty moderate questions that did get you thinking about yourself as a leader and business runner.

Interview Question – How would you describe yourself as a leader?   View Answer

Reason for Declining – I wanted to get paid more, not just matched.
