    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.

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

    Pros

    A lot of hours during busy season, working in a social setting, discounts on merchandise, floor sets overnight were productive and kept fun, and ability to be promoted.

    Cons

    Sometimes they made you feel bad about taking time off or sick days. Some managers had you do tasks while on break, and promotions didn't come with a pay raise.

    Advice to Management

    Remind your managers and assistants to still be a team player and respectful to associates. Also, don't have associates do small tasks while on break.
