    I have been working at American Eagle Outfitters part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great employee discount- 40% usually and 50% off new season merchandise. Can shop at any American Eagle with the discount.
    Part time schedule is good for students. I was working there and taking classes.

    Cons

    This pertains to the location in Herald Square:

    They use to cut a lot of hours. Sometimes when you arrive they would send you back because they were "over hours."
    Expect to stay much later than the night shift
    Constantly harassed about opening credit cards and reward cards but that's usually all retail jobs.
    Need to ask permission to use the bathroom because only the managers had keys
    High turn over rate, pay is low.
    Some people enjoy it, you really need to enjoy working in retail. If you don't you will be miserable

    I have been working at American Eagle Outfitters part-time

    Pros

    - fairly flexible hours
    - nice staff, easy to make new friends with other workers
    - decent discounts

    Cons

    - No priority given to staff which has been there a long time, company does not value long term employees at all.
    - Hours remain completely inconsistent, sometimes 4 hrs, sometimes 20, usually never more than 20 hrs. (dont expect more hours if you have been there longer, even if you have good sales)
    -expect high sales and customers often think you are on commission but are not. (good sales again lead to no benefits)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward good sales with decent hours and raises. Give some sort of incentive to retain older staff. Does older more experience staff who know there stuff not make sense to keep around than training new people over and over again? Also please give a decent training session.
