No opinion of CEO

I have been working at American Eagle Outfitters full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Fun atmosphere, great discount, great health benefits, and great pay.

Cons

Very minimal payroll to give out, customers complain that there isn't enough help on a daily basis.

Advice to Management

There needs to be more payroll to give better customer service. Online returns should not count against the store.

    Friendly co-workers. Okay discount. Working in the heart of the city. Gain some experience.

    Management sucks. Overworked. Unorganized. Lack of communication. Lack of appreciation.

    As a manager you should be a leader which I've seen very little of.

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

    Pros

    Great employee discount, great benefits, Fun environment. Good customer service training.

    Cons

    Store management works way too hard for what they get paid. There are very high expectations, work-life balance is almost non existent because of the demanding hours. It might be worth it if the pay was adequate for the dedicated.

    Advice to Management

    Headquarters should genuinely seek advice from store management teams... I'm certain their suggestions would be helpful.
