    I have been working at American Apparel full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    50% off discount Flexible hours Chill work environment Good music in stores

    Cons

    Very poor job training with extremely low pay. Been there for over a year, I requested a salary and pay review and have yet to receive any HR response a month later. Complete disorganization from a managerial level with inconsistent information, false promises about pay rate and position. If you just want a simple short term sales job with a great 50% off discount (you are required to wear AA from head to toe) its not bad but do not attempt to enter their ridiculous visual merchandising or management.

    Advice to Management

    Set up a system for 6 month to a year for a scheduled salary review, review.managers more closely and offer pay incentive to merchandisers
