  1. Good place to start out

    I worked at Aéropostale part-time

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere in the store, learn valuable skills, customer-focused, great training program

    Cons

    High employee turn-over, on-call work scheduling system is incredibly annoying, actual work can be quite monotonous

    Advice to Management

    Hire less employees. Working part-time but having some on-call shifts was very inconvenient. It also felt like you were just a number at work when you start out.

    Pros

    - Everyone was helpful when you first start working there
    - Easy to return if you go away (ex. leave for school, etc.)

    Cons

    - Only got a raise of 40 cents during my 3 years there
    - Will start hiring younger workers and give less hours to the people that have been there longer
    - Sometimes you will work long hours for low pay


  3. Part-Time Sales Associate

    I worked at Aéropostale

    Pros

    Fun co-workers, easy brand to sell

    Cons

    Pay could be more competitive, shifts are stressful and unorganized (especially with high volume locations)

    Advice to Management

    Send important information to entire staff via email so everyone can be in the loop.

    Pros

    Employees get along really well
    Everyone is always really helpful
    Good first job

    Cons

    Hours are TERRIBLE
    I've worked with the store manager one time
    Managers play favorites when scheduling people
    The company made us hire more people when we didn't even have enough hours to give out to old employees.

    Advice to Management

    Dont play favorites and make sure all your employees are happy
