I have been working at American Girl part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Great place to work retail. Friendly staff and management, customers are generally positive, and excellent incentive programs. American Girl is part of Mattel and so has a good corporate structure as well. All staff are encouraged to "make magic" for the customer meaning you are empowered and encouraged to make the customer happy without having to go through a lot of hoops.

Cons

Part-time staff will rarely receive more than 22 hours in a week and there are a very limited number of benefited positions. Because it is a store whose main clients are 9-year-old girls, there can be a bit of "goody-two-shoes" about the place--strict dress code, language, etc.

Advice to Management

Keep up what you're doing! It's a great place. Don't sweat the small stuff as that is what drives staff crazy.

    Pay (2.13 + tips) - pretty slow on weekdays, but the holidays and weekend will make up for it.
