    I'm applying for a job at American Eagle Outfitters.
    I have a few questions about the store.

    1.) What is the employee discount for working at the store?
    2.) Are you required to dress in the clothing that they sell?
    3.) Is anyone else in your family allowed to use the discount?

    Are you getting the job for the discount or to get paid?

    You're in luck, I happen to work there.

    1) The discount is actually a good one, 40% off anything in the store, including clearance. And let me tell you, 40% is much cheaper than you think. I tend to comb through the clearance and grab a pile of t-shirts for $2-5 a pop. In all honesty, the discount has kept many people from quitting.

    2) Not technically. You aren't required to, but you can't walk in wearing an Abercrombie shirt either.

    3) Only you can use the discount, but it can be purchased for anyone.

    Better. Get hired, and then tell them you're only available one day a month. Stores like that tend you keep you on payroll even if you don't work a single shift.

    I have a friend that still gets the employee discount at Zumiez and hasn't worked there in over 2 years.

    Plus, working an 8pm - 6am shift with 20 attractive girls my age dressing mannequins is not always a bad situation.

    Amen friend! I used to host at Chili's with a bunch of 20 year old girls and it was so kick ass.
