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

    Pros

    Flexible hours, great discount on cute clothes online and in store.
    Great coworkers and staff, managers are cool and mellow.
    Expierence not required.

    Cons

    Usually only you and a manager on the floor.
    You have to do mostly everything yourself: cashier, fitting rooms, customer service and keeping everything neat/oragnized. Manager greets people and tells you what to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not enough pay for what you have to do 8.25 (minimun wage)

    I worked at American Eagle Outfitters full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    discounts, that's pretty much it, every now and then you may get a chance to win prizes

    Cons

    there is a lot of favoritism and outside influences, tons of drama and unprofessional by management, no work life balance and expectation to do 60 hours of work in 40 hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    use the open door policy how it was intended. you can't use this to force others out because your upper management doesn't like someone, and confidential calls means that stop giving out info on the caller
