I have been working at American Eagle Outfitters part-time (More than a 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 Management

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

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

    Pros

    Great clothing, good discounts (40-60% off), love my team, fun and hip environment, great repeat customers. When you're a manager you get lots of hours. If you look into it, you are able to get cell phone plan discounts, health insurance discounts, etc.

    Cons

    It's very common to get 0-3 hours a week total as a sales associate. If you do not get credit card sign ups, you will get fewer hours. Some people may find this work repetitive and boring (i.e. folding and refolding clothes, stocking items, doing price markdowns). The pay is not good. If you are lucky after one year you will get a 25 cent raise. Even being a manager I only got $1 more per hour than regular employees.
