I worked at American Eagle Outfitters part-time for more than a year

Pros

Such a great experience; make great relationships with customers and very tight knit sales group

Cons

Capricious scheduling; sometimes customers were rude and there was nothing you could do but hope the manager could calm them down.

    I have been working at American Eagle Outfitters full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good pay & benefits, fun work atmosphere, great discount on clothes.

    Cons

    Very repetitive job and honestly it was sort of brainless, as a company many employees work long, long hours so to achieve a work life balance I had to make it a point to work certain hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage a better work/life balance and don't promote based on the hours people spend at the office, promote more based on the quality of the work people do while they are at work.

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

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, great customers. The managers were friendly and involved. Days off were granted normally without a problem, unless it was near holiday time.

    Cons

    Never received raises, upper division management thought they were better than everyone else. They were very belittling and talked down on you every time you had a question or made a mistake.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New upper management was needed!
