    I worked at Aéropostale part-time

    Pros

    People you work with keep the job entertaining and helps the time go by faster. Clothes discount is a plus as well.

    Cons

    There's no room for growth if you don't meet the age requirement even if you're more than capable at handling the position.

    Advice to Management

    Let associates know that their hard work is appreciated.

    "Sales Associate"

    Pros

    Not a difficult job, really good discount (40% for student ambassador (high school student) 30% for a regular employee)

    Cons

    There were four managers so they just gave hours to themselves while the rest of us barely got any hours, I worked at the most four hours every week until I quit out of frustration. Another thing that was annoying was the fact that when you were scheduled as on call they expected YOU to call in an hour before your shift to see if they needed you.

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

    Pros

    Product.
    Team, I love my team.
    Family Environment-strong teamwork.

    Cons

    No life-work balance.
    Long hours.
    Slightly skewed communications.

    Advice to Management

    Be prepared for hard work and that hard work will pay off. You must put in the work to see the benefits. Looks really great if retail is your career goal. It is difficult of those not pursuing a retail career.

    Not valued, max 8 hours a week, always hiring new people, too pushy.

    Start investing in your current employees instead of always hiring new ones.

    Pros

    you meet nice people and the discounts are good. sometimes you can have fun at work with your coworkers.

    Cons

    managers can be lazy and not want to help. ridiculous hours include over night shifts with no breaks.

    Advice to Management

    if you're going to have 16 year olds work till 12 on a school night or overnight on the weekends you should tell them that prior to hiring and pay them more than 7.25 an hour.

    I worked at Aéropostale (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Often other stores' management team can be very approachable. Districts really work together as a team. Monthly bonuses for entire management team if you make the bonus plan.

    Cons

    They treat their managers terribly. Expect for them to expect 50+ hours out of you if you're full time. Plus, any part timers are usually high school kids at their first job, so it's hard to get quality work done unless the managers do all of it.

    I worked at Aéropostale part-time

    Pros

    The supervisor and manager were nice people. I got along with all of my coworkers very well. Good place to start out.

    Cons

    The hours can get cut back due to store needs and not meeting goals. On call for the majority of your shift and no word on whether or not you'd have to come in until a half hour before.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employee needs and create a way to have a smoother on call process. Allow time for the on call person to make it in to work for their shift.
