I have been working at American Eagle Outfitters full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Great benefits, an pay. Fast paced. Great clothing. Professional company with 401k and stock options.

Cons

Hard to move up, and get overlooked. High demands, and not enough communication with higher management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be prepared to give 110% just to get by. A lot of turnover.

    I worked at American Eagle Outfitters part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    An amazing 40% (sometimes 50%) discount you get. They give you good hours, unlike other mall stores. They have competitions on who can sell the most the fastest, and if you win....you get free stuff!

    Cons

    If you work floorsets, you're going to be working 24+ hours in 3 days. You'll get off when the sun comes up. I had the worst manager in the world, hopefully you won't.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I had a horrible micromanager but he was fired :)) So I have no advice

    Pros

    they work around your schedule

    Cons

    you don't get many hours. The store revolves around many part time employees so you might get 10 hours a week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You could save so much money if you weren't so fickle. Having worked as a stock associate I can say that Idk how much time and money you could of saved if we didn't have to SIZE jeans in the back. I could give several more examples of how you could save money but we will stick with that for now
