Aeropostale was a great first-job, but not a career building place.

Pros

You are encouraged to wear jeans and flip flops to work. You get decent discounts. Some of the clothes are pretty cute. There's always something happening within the company to try and promote sales in a fun way. Depending on the store manager, your pay can be pretty nice.

Cons

There is not much room for growth while working there. Unless you are 21, you are not getting promoted. Be prepared to work with high school kids who only want to get drunk and/or high. There is definitely a clique within the establishment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do not get drunk with the high school kids. Also, you may want to actually fit in the clothes that you're trying to sell to other people.

    Be more open as to who you try to help out instead of treating it like a high school popularity contest
