Pros

Excellent training program, bonus potential, many existing stores and constantly opening new stores (both Aeropostale and PS kids store)

Cons

Many of the associates you manage are not interested in learning, rather just collecting a paycheck...this can be annoying!

Advice to Management

Remember what it is like to work in a store, and consider this when directing in store managers to implement something! Something that sounds like a good idea in the corporate office is actually very difficult to implement in the store. Sometimes it is worth the trouble sometime it is not!

    Pros

    Amazing Benefits, family-like environment, semi-flexible schedule, opportunities for advancement fairly quickly, great customer service,

    Cons

    long hours, salary does not correlate to hours worked and effort put in, little to no corporate support for the storeline sector, not enough payroll to fully staff or support the store, or execute floorsets, poor training

    Needs to advance technologically much quicker, give more hours to your storeline to accomplish the tasts and projects or set more realistic expectations.
