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

Pros

Great benefits for employees, great company

Cons

Customer base varies dramatically among stores. It makes if very dificult to stay engaged when the customer wants nothing to do with you and has no respect for you or your product. This experience is not always this bad in other malls. Advancement is great if you have someone in your corner.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promoting within the same store can be very difficult for the peers who are not subordinants. Make sure you take time to engage all staff. Don't play favorites because it is very disengaging.

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

    Pros

    - Great discount; 30% off of everything, and you recieve %50 off anything in the store once a month.
    -The company cares about you and wants you to move up.
    -The company is strictly about customer service which i think is very important in a retail business.
    -The pay is very competitive.

    Cons

    -There are alot of promos,marketing changes, and markdowns and the company doesn't give you enough payroll hours to complete the tasks in the designated amount of time.
    - You sometimes have to work crazy hours, and having a weekend off is tough to get.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think management would be alot happier if there were more payroll hours to complete markdowns, marketing changes, and promos. When the expectation is not to start on these tasks until close, it is impossible to get them done in a hour with only you and an associate working.
