    I have been working at Aéropostale full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fun, fashion, friends, hard work and tons of blood, sweat and tears.

    Cons

    Never enough payroll or manpower to get the job done; manager pay is far more beneficial and competitive than hourly associates and a lot of amazing people leave because of it. The expectations are highly unrealistic.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your part-timers better and amazing things will happen.
