    Pros

    Fun atmosphere, the company is really customer driven and big on providing an individual experience

    Cons

    As management, during peak times (holiday and BTS) it was a challenge to get tasks/units completed within the time limits corporate allocated as far as shipment, markdowns, and floor sets

    I have been working at American Eagle Outfitters part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The discount is unmatched by competitors in the mall plus also the the people that work there are always happy and peppedup.

    Cons

    The company cares about numbers which is cool but sometimes you have to worry about missing numbers, even being a sales associate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give incentives to associates for selling and more fair hours.

    Pros

    Discounts; flex schedule; fun environment. Tasking and multi tasking is a requirement. That and customer servicing your butt off. Nothing that is too difficult to handle

    Cons

    Depends on your particular store whether the management environment is tense and very difficult to please or genuine and understanding of associate needs
