    I have been working at Aéropostale part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Was fun working with children's clothes

    Cons

    Zero work life balance, want it to be your whole life. I was in school at the time and they wanted me to quit and have open availability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you care about your employees they will work harder and better for you.

    I worked at Aéropostale part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great people for the most part. There's always something to do so you're never bored.

    Cons

    Some people didn't do their jobs. The company isn't doing well so they started blaming their employees for not "selling". Raises are very hard to come by!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more advice from your staff running the stores. They see the effects of new implementations and whether they work or not

    I worked at Aéropostale part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers were very friendly. Very flexible work schedule. Always something to do while you're working.

    Cons

    Managers are terrible. There are four of them and none of them know how to communicate with one another. They don't know how to properly train a new employee and have terrible attitudes!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get new managers that understand communication and how to properly run a store!

    I have been working at Aéropostale

    Pros

    The company sets realistic goals, great support from managers, participates in activities to help local communities/charities, flexible schedule, and laid back environment.

    Cons

    The customers!! the company needs to realize that we need to set signage up that could be easy for a third grader to understand. There will be a sign that literally says "graphic tees $5," ALL DAY I will be asked how much those shirts are. That is the TIP of the iceberg! If it weren't for all of the truly bad customers that we get, my job would be great!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't change customer policies if you aren't going to be strict about it. If a customers complains about something enough, they always get their way.

    Pros

    Aero gives their employees a lot of opportunity to advance their career. The company also truly appreciates their people and works to provide for their employees.

    Cons

    They have some issues, such as inventory allocation, which is very frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep treating you people right, but help give them better tools to do their jobs!

    I have been working at Aéropostale

    Pros

    I love the people I work with! Everyone is so nice and helpful. It is a great place to grow and learn the ropes of merchandising.

    Cons

    The company could use a training program to help employees ease into their roles. Also, the company's financial standing isn't strong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train and develop entry level employees and assistants when they first get there to gain leadership and analytic skill. Also, a rotation program should be in place where each employee spends time in each department so that everyone has an understanding of how the company functions and why it is important to know about each role.

    I worked at Aéropostale full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company really fallows and live by their values. Peoples have a voice that can be heard throughout the company. If you are having a problem with an objective, you can share your concerns without getting shot down. Usually you will get help or even can help change the proses to make it better. There are a lot of tools to help you meet your goals. Compensation is competitive and bonuses are available down to Sales Leads. Bonus plans are usually attainable.

    Cons

    Plans and objectives can change quickly. Promos, marketing visuals can change weekly, and sometimes multiple times in the same week. There is always a lot of work to do and payroll can be tight. Managers can't just organize and lead, they have to do as much physical labor as the associates to be successful.
