I love my job... But nothing is ever going to be perfect.

Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee)
Monroe, MI

ProsGreat staff and great customer values. American Eagle's customer first policy makes working for the company so much fun and very easy to do. There are programs in place to help anyone get to the next level associates and management alike. Communication between district and regional managers to stores is great.

ConsScheduling seems to be an issue with alot of stores. Communication between store management and store associates is terrible. Even though our store is trying to combat that it's taking time that the company doesn't give us. It's very hard to work on development and growing your associates when you have to be focused on sales and credit all the time. But both are company standards.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on growing lower management and associates. It will only help in the long run. Better communication between everyone on all levels.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
