    Pros

    The only pros to working at American Apparel that I can think of are the above minimum wage pay and discount on clothing.

    Cons

    Although racially diverse, the employees all share the same hipster "I'm too cool" attitude and style. Somewhat of an intimidating atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice and no feedback to offer the leadership at American Apparel. I hope they don't shut down, though.

    • Great pay compared to similar companies
    • Flexible scheduling for days and time off.

    Cons

    • High stress from upper management

    Advice to Management

    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.
