    I worked at American Apparel

    Pros

    The discount and seasonal clothing allowances are definitely a plus.
    Plenty of room for advancement within the company.

    Cons

    You will most likely be overworked and underpaid
    Raises are few and far between
    Not very professional at the corporate level
    Work environment reminiscent of high school

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with the same respect that you think you're entitled to. Everyone will benefit in the long run.

    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.
