No opinion of CEO

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 Management

Not too much I guess

    I worked at American Apparel full-time

    Pros

    -Free clothes when monthly sales goals met -Sometimes free cash bonuses -Work with the right team and it can be really fun!

    Cons

    -Young upper management, many times hard to work with because of general lack of experience in another job outside of AA and immaturity -Young staff, expect gossiping -Can be extremely unprofessional which leads to frustration/difficulty in moving up -Training is poor

    Advice to Management

    Seek training. Many times you won't be given training so do it yourself! Read about the management of organizations and how to communicate within. Take a management class. Whatever it takes. Do it to be a better person!

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Easy to get a job if you fit their "look" even without experience. Usually the staff is nice and fun to work with but some of the managers are sassy and full of themselves.

    Cons

    They will keep you overtime very frequently because of unorganized shipments. You have to receive a shipment after your shift and put it all on the floor before you leave, which can drag hours and hours past your shift. They'll make you work overnight sometimes then oopen the store in the morning.

    Advice to Management

    Better organization would be a huge improvement for the working conditions. People don;t want to commit their lives to the store, they have lives outside work.
