A high paced high stress work environment.

I worked at American Apparel

Pros• Good Benifits for part-time employment
• Great pay compared to similar companies
• Flexible scheduling for days and time off.

Cons• High stress from upper management
• Fast-paced environment you can be penalized for "moving to slow"
• Lots of scapegoating to lower level employees to store management

Advice to Senior ManagementHire mature store managers who take responsibility for their own inability to do the task presented on them and not blame their employees for the stores downfalls.
