    I have been working at Aéropostale full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most of the staff is easy to get along with. It's quite an easy job when everyone pulls their own weight.

    Cons

    Other management is unfair in scheduling and the work load is unbalanced. The amount of work out in and the experience I can contribute does not even out to the amount the company wants to pay.

    Advice to Management

    Contribute an even amount of work. Listen to your other management staff. Be considerate of others and offer praise every once in a while.

    Fun environment that allows you to work closely with customers. It's a pretty stress-free job. Lots of vacation time.

    If you're looking for an easy position that doesn't challenge you too much, then this is a great job for you.

    Pros

    Great and fun environment with fantastic discounts and bonus opportunities. The people i worked with were fabulous (at both locations that i worked) and the responsibilities were always tackled with a team effort. Very family oriented.

    Cons

    Sometimes the work load would be a little much and our payroll wouldn't allow for proper coverage of the store.

    Advice to Management

    Tag team difficult tasks, and monitor payroll to ensure proper store coverage is always available.

    Pros

    Work with great people. Incentives for hard work. People get recognized and promoted when they do well. Fun work atmosphere.
