    Pros

    There was a good work environment with friendly coworkers and nice location. The managers were all very helpful and made sure everyone felt comfortable working at Aero.

    Cons

    The work can sometimes feel tedious and repetitive and can also get tiring because there's a lot of interaction with people for long periods of time, but if you like that, then I'd definitely recommend working in retail.

    Advice to Management

    It's unfortunate that Aeropostale had to file for bankruptcy because I thought that the company was very good to its employees and to its customers.
