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

    Pros

    decent discount - 40%

    Cons

    -Low pay
    -Bad hours
    -Terrible, inappropriate, and unqualified management
    -Irresponsible and immature associates
    -Majority of clients that shop this location are very rude (this store does not bring in the best cliental)
    -Clothes and quality of clothes are cheap and inconsistent

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a more extensive interview/hiring process for the store management team of this company. Send investigators monthly to stores to get a glimpse of how stores are being run.

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

    Pros

    Great environment to practice sales skills. They also allow the salesman enough autonomy to handle large sales by themselves.

    Cons

    Very little increase in salary as you move along into management. This can give you a stale taste in your mouth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop younger talent early on and really try to give employees more responsibility to make decisions on the floor.
