I worked at American Apparel

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Cons

    • High stress from upper management

    • 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.
