I have been working at American Eagle Outfitters part-time (more than a year)

Pros

Flexibility with high school schedule, fast reply after an interview. You gain good experience in business and it can be a fun working environment.

Cons

Folding the clothes, dealing with some of the customers (any job that comes with business and retail), have to wait for call to see if you have to work that day.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Doing a good job!

    Pros

    The company has great product and great culture that make working long shifts very easy. My time spent at American Eagle brought many great experiences with awesome co-workers and cool people to help shop.

    Cons

    The small chance of promotion and small wages are upsetting. I made the company much more than the company paid me and wished I could have seen more of that money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer a monetary rewards program for high performing employees
