We'll give you free access to a suite of tools that will help you keep your job search as efficient and organized as possible.
You can submit a paper application for seasonal, summer, or other temporary positions. These positions are not listed on StartWire or on American Eagle's website, so you will need to visit a store and speak with the hiring manager to learn about the opportunities available.
The American Eagle Outfitters application is one of the most applicant-friendly experiences that we've ever had. If you already have a resume prepared, it should take you no more than 15 minutes to complete. Note: You will not be able to apply without a resume.
Before you can fill out an application for a position at American Eagle, you will need to find a job opening in your area that interests you. Once you've identified the job that you would like to have, you will have to create an account on their hiring site before you can apply. Creating an account is simple, and will only take a minute. You only need to provide your email address and a password.
Once your account is created, you will be asked to upload your resume. If you have a resume prepared, you should take advantage of the opportunity, as it will save you a significant amount of time -- American Eagle will pull your information and use it to pre-fill many of the fields in the application. Additionally, they make it very clear that you will only be fully considered for a job if you provide one. So if you really want to work at American Eagle and don't have a resume, you should strongly consider writing one before you fill out the application. It might take you a few hours to put one together, but it's an important document that everyone should have (and you will get to reuse it over and over again). So why not take advantage of the incentive?
You will get automatic updates every time your application status changes when you apply for an American Eagle Outfitters job using StartWire. This way, you'll always know if your application has been read and if you're still being considered for the position. Sign up now
