Advice to ManagementAdvice

I think the American Apparel management needs to grow up. Not so much the managers and asst. managers, but the district managers are horrible. They're very snobby and condescending. I think overall, they just need to focus on the good of the store while still encouraging their staff.

    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.
