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

    Pros

    Our manager got to know us. He understood what our goals of our job were. He gave us hours based off how hard we worked. Funny and easy to get along with coworkers.

    Cons

    Only complaint is that they don't increase salaries often nor do they promote often.

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

    Pros

    The company offers discounts on one outfit a month with additional discounts that can be used as well.. The clothes are already inexpensive so a whole outfit may cost between 14-22 bucks

    Cons

    There are too many on call shifts, not enough hours, rude and demanding customers, and poor management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the on call shifts

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

    Pros

    This company promotes you quickly due to turn over rate. You can learn a lot from this company which will help you get further jobs in the field of retail. It's a great place to start to get your foot in the door.

    Cons

    Excessive hours (over 45 per week and no time and a half) the process of floor sets are extremely un-organized with little staff due to cutting pay roll hours every single day. Not enough staff help because they hire little kids and pay them minimum wage. Working over night from 5 pm until 10 am the next morning should not be allowed unless pay is increased during those grave yard hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn a better way to launch and execute floor sets. Learn a better way to process shipment because door to floor with one merch flow manager does not work smoothly.

    Pros

    A lot of networking potential. Opportunities to learn different aspects of the company and procedures.

    Cons

    So much time changing marketing with each pricing change and rearranging the store. They are all about getting product out the door and not enough payroll to make to store presentable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be ready to sacrifice a lot of home life.

    Pros

    everything is good about this job. Great discount. Great morale. High standards. The people who work here care about the company and how the company is perceived by the customers.

    Cons

    Can't be promoted unless 21 no matter what.
    We stay hella late to clean the store, but its all just to make sure the store is clean and presentable for the customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take a look at your employees and see who would be a good manager, not who is able to drink.

    Pros

    Higher pay than most retail stores, fun environment, great people, great company to work for. Usually promotes within so there is a high chance for advancement.

    Cons

    Transferring among stores is not always based on what is best for you as an associate but based on what the company wants.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    DM's and RM's should really listen to the employees more. It seems as it is not always in our best interest.
