    I worked at Aéropostale part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good people, good customers, and good hours.
    I had an amazing time working there and I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

    Cons

    There's constantly a lot of people in the store. Other than that there was really nothing that bad. If you can't deal with going on the floor the first day and not getting a lot of direction then this job isn't for you

    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.

    Pros

    Great people to work with
    Fun interacting with customers

    Cons

    Management is terrible. Nowadays, at least 3 people are hired a week and none of them are trained properly. New manager treats employees as if they are less than her. No hours. Went from at least 25 hours a week to 10. Minimum wage ($7.25)

    Advice to Management

    Do better.

    Pros

    Sucks. Company asks the world of employees but does not give payroll for it.

    Cons

    Does not compensate well at all.

    Advice to Management

    Sales lead title should be assistant manager since doing the same things and getting paid less for it.
