    Pros

    everything is good about this job. Great discount. Great morale. High standards. The people who work here care about the company and how the company is perceived by the customers.

    Cons

    Can't be promoted unless 21 no matter what.
    We stay hella late to clean the store, but its all just to make sure the store is clean and presentable for the customers.

    Advice to Management

    take a look at your employees and see who would be a good manager, not who is able to drink.

    Pros

    good feedback, oportunity to grow, hands on experience, detail in floorsets, backroom organization, all management included in daily actitivties, great teamwork

    Cons

    The downsides are the clothes themselves, it was hard to represent a brand i was not in to. Also, the closing nights were horrible in reaching a good time to leave the store in to standard.

    Advice to Management

    To leadership, less clothes on teh floor or a better closing proceudre will help management be productive for they wont be over worked or tired.

    I have been working at Aéropostale full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working at Aeropostale gives me a chance to giver away fashion tips to other people.And then when they come back they say,"hey theres that lady who gave AWSOME fashion tips to me lets go ask her for some more." Thats what makes Aeropostale fun.

    Cons

    The down side about working at Aeropostale is when you go home your exhausted by all of the costumers. And you have to come in really early and leave really late. Those are all of the down sides about working at Aeropostale.

    Advice to Management

    When you have little employes it means little to pay. But when have lots of employes it takes alot to pay them.
