    I have been working at American Eagle Outfitters


    The environment and the managers are amazing. They're understanding and help you when you need it most. If you are a good worker then they give you the respect a good worker should receive.


    There are no cons for this company because I understand that what people believe are cons of a company are really not, they are just ways to maintain their company strong and keep their employees to be successful in the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work and communicate with your sales associate the same way you do with your friends because work is a better place when everyone is surround by people they love.
