    -Free stuff

    Cons

    -Immature management

    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.
