    Pros

    Dress casual Good benefits Fun at times

    Cons

    Inconsiderate You live there Less pay for too much work

    Advice to Management

    Instead of giving away so much money with free gift with purchases and free $5 cards every other week! During holidays be more considerate, if not with so many markdowns and promos then for sure with so much marketing changes! Every store should be able to have a promo scanner, and maybe the clothes should be shipped already sensored to cut down on lp bc it doesn't get done!

    I worked at Aéropostale part-time (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.

    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 Management

    Stop the on call shifts

    If you enjoy retail and shopping..then it's food because you're surrounded by closed and get to assist customers with purchases.

    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 Management

    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.
