    Pros

    Very laid back environment. You get close to the people you work with.

    Cons

    it really is only meant to be part time. They don't want to hire full time employees because the company just runs better off with younger people that don't require benefits. It is a great high school job but that's about it. The only way to be successful is to be liked by the people you're around... so mostly just sticking up to to the right people.

    I worked at Aéropostale (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good job. Not a lot of hours, so it’s good if you’re still in school. Decent discount.

    Cons

    If you’re not in school and looking for more hours, not the best job. Only get like 1-2 shifts a week, and more if management likes you.

    Advice to Management
