    Pros

    American Eagle sells clothes that truly are worth the price as they are marked. The atmosphere of the company is positive, and it is such an enjoyable and easy place to work. And the discounts are awesome!

    Cons

    A big downside is how they really work payroll. The store is given "X" amount of hours to distribute for the week to employees based on the sales of the store. And say it was a bad day for sales in the middle of the week and it was raining, your store won't get as many hours to use for the weekend because of that one bad day.

    Advice to Management

    Schedules should be posted using an online system where employees have the ability to switch their shifts with others and also post their availability to ensure no scheduling errors.

    Pros

    This company cares about it's employees and offers the best quality service to it's customers. Employees can start off part time but through hard work can be noticed quickly by district and regional managers. Employees are trained and encouraged to reach store goals.

    Cons

    Starting pay for most associates is low and the process for raises and the like is slow. Don't work here and expect to get a lot of hours unless you bend over backwards for the company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your core values of offering the best customer service and the best product for the price. Consider eliminating the requirement of re-entering customer's email address every single transaction. It becomes inconvenient for frequent customers and makes them unhappy.
