    Pros

    The job allowed me to work with many different people across a variety of tasks. The best part was going into the stores to perform hands-on evaluations of the products.

    Cons

    Working with different supervisors was a bit difficult at times. There wasn't always something to do, so I would at times be given arbitrary tasks or nothing to do at all.

    Pros

    American Eagle Outfitters (AEO) trains their employees through short videos before every shift. They may be a bit cheesy, but they are very helpful and give those with little to no customer service experience suggestions on how to talk to customers.

    There's plenty of room for advancement. AEO hires from within for positions such as Sales Leads and Assistant Store Mangers. Sometimes this requires moving stores, but many have been able to stay within 50 miles of their original store.

    Casual environment which creates a friendly and informal relationship between employees. Slight annual raise and good employee discount.

    Cons

    Some of the customers, like any place in retail, can be awful, depending on location.
