Mandatory minimum of over 250 overtime hours at large volume locations

Current Employee - Associate Manager
Current Employee - Associate Manager

I have been working at Aéropostale full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great team-working, problem-solving, and relationship-building, but start at a lower volume location until you have the operational tools mastered.

Cons

Highly-restrictive payroll. Store managers make no income after 40 hours per week, regularly must work well past that. All other managers make supplemental pay after the 40 hour work week. Corporate HQ has a knee-jerk response to business trends.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Train and coach, then develop your role models to be highly effective in all aspects of business acumen, therefore allowing you to delegate more responsibly.

    I worked at Aéropostale part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    flexible with scheduling (would work around school if you needed to), employee discount was nice, always ran fun competitions between associates with prizes to see who could sell more.

    Cons

    pay rate in the long run was unfair (I had been there for over 2 years and had associates starting with no experience making more money than I did), head management was unfair and brought their personal problems into the workplace.
