    I worked at American Eagle Outfitters part-time (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.
