    I worked at Aéropostale full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Aggressive bonus options
    Fun and very Fast paced
    Good retailer to start out at as far as learning one way of providing service, but definite opportunities abound

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations of salaried management
    Very reactive to business, but never proactive enough to allow managers to plan.
    Regional management was very inappropriate and unprofessional.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Solicit more feedback from store level employees and management. There were no excuses for the comments made by regional management about hiring practices and the "culture" of Aeropostale.

    Pros

    This company promotes you quickly due to turn over rate. You can learn a lot from this company which will help you get further jobs in the field of retail. It's a great place to start to get your foot in the door.

    Cons

    Excessive hours (over 45 per week and no time and a half) the process of floor sets are extremely un-organized with little staff due to cutting pay roll hours every single day. Not enough staff help because they hire little kids and pay them minimum wage. Working over night from 5 pm until 10 am the next morning should not be allowed unless pay is increased during those grave yard hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn a better way to launch and execute floor sets. Learn a better way to process shipment because door to floor with one merch flow manager does not work smoothly.
