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

    Pros

    If they like you, they'll give you a lot of hours and there's a lot of opportunities to move up.

    Cons

    If it's slow or if the company isn't making enough money that day they can send you home or tell you not to come in.

    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

    The discount was pretty good

    Cons

    bad hours sometimes no hours
    made you post online while not at work to be an "aero ambassador" with no pay just a slightly bigger discount
    when I tried to quit manager shrugged me off and did not listen
    I was not supposed to write reviews online about working here (not hard to figure out why)
    i have not worked there for five years and i still hate it more than any job i have had including tacobell

    Advice to Management

    You make it look fun then treat everyone badly
    give people more then a 12 hour max
    stop being rude and condescending

    Not enough structure - managers and higher ups

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

    Pros

    Having great co-workers and mangers is a stress reliever. Working with all sorts of people is something I enjoy doing and helping them as fast as I can. Spanish wasn't my first language but working at Aeropostale was an opportunity to practice my speaking skills in my second language.

    Cons

    During the holidays, it seems like everyone is doing their own thing. Organization is out of the picture, which was extremely frustrating. Causing customers to destroy the story and workers start acting up.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe a daily reminder to the employees what should be done and if they mess up, to them right there and then .
