    I worked at Aéropostale full-time

    Pros

    It's a great community to grow in and your voice is heard, even if you are young and new.

    Cons

    Leadership can often be very forceful in the ideas they want to commit to. Turnover happens in big waves.

    I have been working at Aéropostale full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They will pay their managers better than other associates and there is room to grow after the restructuring of the company.

    Cons

    Not enough payroll hours to go around to schedule associates so the workload on management is unbearable. Floorsets happen once and sometimes twice a month, with weekly changes to the visual merchandising and promotional signage.

    Advice to Management

    Have realistic expectations for teams that don't have the staff for their store volume or the payroll to get the amount of things done and make sales goals.

    Interacting with costumers and learning next things everyday. Always moving and upbeat. Never bored. Costumers can be funny and fun to be around.

    Pros

    fun environment depending on your team. the part timers i worked with were awesome (the new people) and few of the older ones as well. The discounts are pretty reasonable and insurance isn't so bad.

    Cons

    The store i worked at had to REAL team comradery about it. Communication was horrible!!! The manager has been with the company forever and she seems to be very close minded, over-worked and underpayed, therfore bitter. She wasn't very fair in the scheduling and they just seemed very petty and dysfunctional.

    Advice to Management

    When you get new management try to be more welcoming and embrace them. Appreciate and acknowledge your hard workers and treat people equally and with respect!!!
