Pros

The discounts, they are great. Also, you might want to try and get a raise because sometimes it works and then you can get more money as well as discounts on the clothing.

Cons

Well, the fact that it is so superficial. The people are nice enough, but it is still very superficial and consumer oriented in a bad way.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Not too much I guess

    I worked at American Apparel part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fun people to work with, and the job was simple enough. They were good about fitting your schedule and the store manager was good at communicating what he expected of everyone.

    Cons

    Very often there would be many shipments and changes sent down from upper management that were a bad fit for our branch location, throwing many things into chaos.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick a direction that you want and stick to it. Do not try to do too much.
