    I have been working at American Girl part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The environment is amazing to work in! Management is really good, they listen to you! The discounts are good too! They really take care of their employees! And the pay is good!

    Cons

    You don't get very many hours! Even though they pay above what most entry-level employers pay, the hours are so horrible that i have to take up a second job!

    Interview Details

    Not a great experience at all! Received an initial interview on the phone earlier in the week and was told to come into an interview at the end of the week (Saturday) knew they were having a job fair and asked if i could come the first day but was told no. Finally Saturday arrived and i get to my interview, had to fill out another application and do the in person interview only to be told that they had already filled their positions and were no longer looking. Why was I given an interview later then other people when you had the intentions of filling the positions before even seeing me? The lady that interviewed me was very nice but the whole time I was sitting there, I was upset. Don't find that professional at all! Not a good experience at all.
