I have been working at American Eagle Outfitters full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

pay scale is better than alot of retailers, but it is still not enough for the expectation of managers for the company. employee discount is one of the best in the industry.

Cons

Not enough appreciation for the work you do. Pay scale definately does not meet the intense demand of the position. I have worked for 3 other companies and American Eagle does require alot from their managers... which is fine...but equal pay for equal work! Holiday hours, expecially Black Friday - opening at midnight - life/work balance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please listen to the all store management and associates - and to the customers. We were recently told to turn the volume up on the music and have had numerous complaints from customers that it's too loud! We would like to have more support about our day-to-day issues. Not having denim sizes for our customer - when we are the 'denim destination' in the mall sets us up for failure and not success.

    Pros

    If you are a fan of their outfit you can get a 50% off on new items and some of them even a 60% off while you work there. Good High school job.

    Cons

    Those companies like AE, A&F and minor retails have a very limited payroll therefore employees will get very limited amount of hours . Good if you still living with your parents

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the training to new employees I worked in the company for 6 months and was never trained in the register.
