    Pros

    Incentives are great when you are able to achieve them - which is almost never unless you work at Time's square or Mall of America.

    Cons

    Hiring of so many young teens makes it very hard to keep good, hard-working employees - and this is what they want you to do in order to sell to that demographic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more proactive in helping store-line employees achieve their goals.

    Pros

    Aero is wonderful in that you meet many amazing new people and scheduling works around whatever availability you put in, so they're very flexible with your personal needs. Also, giving up and trading shifts are very easy to do, so you never feel completely trapped with shifts. It's a great introduction to the workforce but not so much anything afterwards. Good pocket money but you cannot pay rent, utilities, and other needs if you were living on an Aero paycheck.

    Cons

    Aero constantly promotes you to one position to the next and the next, which gives you more responsibility and yes, a stronger sense of belonging, but with every promotion they give you no raise. There are certain positions (cash wrap specialist, visual, etc.) where they must give you a raise if you are promoted but it's a mere 15 cents on top of an already extremely low starting salary. The work itself is also very demanding in NYC as we are very busy during holidays (which can add up many hours to your original scheduling but not easy work!) and you can expect to not be able to breathe when the store is busy! I have been working here for a year and a half, and I have still not received a review that justifies a raise or not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    RAISES! If you are going to ask us to do more work than is expected of an associate, then raises. If you are going to promote someone to two new positions, then a raise is in order.
    You know how to make your associates "feel" special for a little while but when the numbers don't match your encouragement, you make your associates feel very bitter about working there. Give credit where credit is due.
