    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 .
