    I have been working at American Apparel part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Free clothes, and great discount, competitive pay, creative work environment, easy to move up and beautiful people.

    Cons

    Overworked in the summertime and understaffed, Boxes will be the end of your life if not finished before the end of your shift, also corporate people when they come try to be too cool for school when they are just mildy attractive people who make 40 grand or less a year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase the amount of workers, and lower some of the expectations.

    I worked at American Apparel full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    - Great coworkers
    - Gain experience using Microsoft Excel
    - Medical and Dental benefits for workers
    - Clothing allowances are given out when sales goals are met

    Cons

    - Heavy amounts of favoritism
    - Little oversight of supervisors/managers
    - Uncomfortable work environment
    - Inventory employees never leave on time
    - Are expected to respond to emails at all times (even from home)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should observe lower management more often. I worked under 3 different store managers, who would all spend over 2 hours per day browsing gossip websites or reading tabloid magazines.
