I worked at American Eagle Outfitters part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

The discounts on the clothes were the biggest pro for me, you would occasionally even get seasonal deals where you could snag an entire outfit for $20. The environment was amazing and my coworkers were loads of fun. There were lots of opportunities for advancement and my managers were very flexible with my high school/college schedule!

Cons

The only cons that I encountered were occasionally receiving little to no hours on the scheduling and of course only earning minimum wage- but that's to be expected from a part-time job.

    I have been working at American Eagle Outfitters full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Takes pride in its employees and invests money and training hours into them. A VERY fun environment to work. Many corporate ideas come straight from the store associates.

    Cons

    Pays competitive when first starting, but after acquiring knowledge and training after many years, newcomers are not making much less than you are. Needs to update its wage increase structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs to allow more room for development and opportunity. Sometimes I feel like I have no way to move up in the company, which is why i'm leaving.
