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

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.

    Pros

    If you're a full time student it doesn't conflict much with your schedule at this specific position.
    Small bursts of work

    Cons

    Can be conflicting if you want to get another job and keep this one as they have a policy towards working for competing retail stores.

    Pros

    Discounts were good. Flexible availability.

    Cons

    Management has no consideration for employees, very money hungry. Threatened to fire employees if expected goals were not made. Order you to do one thing and the next second scold you for doing it. Very unorganized management, would forget to give breaks. Some times would make you stay extra hours to close. Managers and supervisors were fake.
