Great Environment, annoying service policy

Sales Associate (Former Employee)
Fort Lauderdale, FL

I worked at Aéropostale part-time for more than a year

ProsThe management was always nice, they really try to make Aero seem like a family. They only hire people that are outwardly friendly, so it is almost guaranteed that you will work with pleasant coworkers

ConsCustomer Service was always highly implemented. Usually a positive thing, although their customer servicing policy was so intense it was almost annoying. At times I felt like I was harassing customers just so my boss wouldn't yell at me.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Great first job.

Sales Associate/Cashier (Current Employee)
Miami, FL

I have been working at Aéropostale part-time for more than a year

ProsExcellent training, Flexible schedule, flexible time off, does not interfere with school, fun environment, builds a good foundation for future jobs, one of the nicer clothing retail companies.

ConsNo benefits for part time, horrible pay, they expect a lot for a minimum wage job, sometimes district and regional managers can be very picky, late closings, dust, rude customers.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive more hours to stores increase wages and benefits. Increase price of clothes.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great atmosphere, learned a lot

Logistics Intern (Former Employee)
South River, NJ

I worked at Aéropostale as an intern for less than a year

ProsOverall good atmosphere at DC and Corporate. As an intern, supervising managers really wanted to be there to help you learn the most possible. Really took your opinions into consideration. Worked on cross functional team projects. 30% employee discount.

ConsLow hourly pay, but the experience outweighed this aspect. No other cons as an intern. Great experience.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

I worked here for two straight years and then during breaks from college for another 2 years.

Cash Wrap Specialist (Former Employee)
Saint Augustine, FL

I worked at Aéropostale part-time for more than 3 years

ProsMy home store had a great "family/fun" environment. People were always ready and willing to help another person without sounding ambiguous or rude. My transfer store, however, did not take into consideration how many years of experience I had prior to transferring and made me do entry level janitorial work.

ConsVery little pay. No raises no matter how long you work with them.

Advice to Senior ManagementN/A

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
