    I worked at Aéropostale (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The hours were great because it gave me the freedom to work in the morning and still have the nights to myself.

    Cons

    False Advertising, I was brought on and was told after three months that I would replace the manager going out on maternity leave and that never happened.

    Advice to Management

    Hire competent workers who are not just high school kids who do not know any better and just slack off all day long.

    Pros

    Fun people and atmosphere
    Amazing discount
    Very flexible schedule
    Store doesn't get terribly busy
    Lots of special events and contests so associates can have the opportunity to win prizes

    Cons

    Not many people work there so hard to switch shifts
    Lots of management changes in a short period of time
    Terrible pay for all the work done
    Little to no training given to associates
    Pressure to sell and make store goal is placed on associates
    Short shifts so less pay
    Lots of late nights because of store closing with few associates scheduled to work

    Value your associates even though everyone is replaceable because you will find yourself in a position where all your best employees have left and when you can't figure out why it's because of the way you treat them

    The company is truly great to work for. They're fun and organized. Product doesn't meet customer needs and that's where they fail. Need new upper management

    Pros

    You move up in the company very fast. They offer opportunity to go to school and graduate. The company is involved with lots of community service and charity events. You get an amazing discount to all the latest fashion.

    Cons

    You could be working for years because they offer good money.

    Advice to Management

    Be prepared to deal with the unexpected things always pop up and never go as planned. The biggest piece of advice i can give you is when things go wrong dont make an excuse plan to fix it and get it done correctly.
