    Scheduling was done Online.

    I honestly do not think I had a single complaint about this company. Very easy to work for and everything was done when i needed it to.

    Pros

    The discount is good at 30% but the company its self seams to be going in a million different directions.

    Cons

    only pays minimum wage, and they take forever to send out the schedule

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give some pay raises and send out schedules for the up coming weekend sooner than Friday night

    I have been working at Aéropostale full-time

    Pros

    Love the people, more relaxed atmosphere, have a work life balance, great discount

    Cons

    Target customer is not who wants to shop at Aero, NEVER enough payroll (20 hours for a full floorset doesn't cut it) and always told to cut, constant and confusing promo changes drive us mad, Aero was more successful before they tried to be more like AE and hollister.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't expect stores to look perfect with such skimpy payroll, Dayforce is more trouble than it's worth, and high volume stores can't possibly give great customer service with all the tasking that needs done. Give the stores proper payroll!

    Pros

    Pay is good. Discount is great

    Cons

    Many nights you are there late. Some weeks there are changes every night. Stay late to straighten the store when it is busy.
