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 ManagementAdvice

Hire 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.

    I worked at American Apparel

    Pros

    I liked my coworkers and the clothes.

    Cons

    The manager for my store was incompetent. The workers in American Apparel are fairly young and therefore some are given higher positions than they can undertake.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people that are actually capable of doing their jobs and that are devoted to the company, and then your turnover rate will not be so high.
