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

    Pros

    Most of the staff is easy to get along with. It's quite an easy job when everyone pulls their own weight.

    Cons

    Other management is unfair in scheduling and the work load is unbalanced. The amount of work out in and the experience I can contribute does not even out to the amount the company wants to pay.

    Advice to Management

    Contribute an even amount of work. Listen to your other management staff. Be considerate of others and offer praise every once in a while.

    I worked at Aéropostale part-time

    Pros

    Not a lot of hours. Some of the coworkers were nice. Small store. Not much clean up.

    Cons

    Not a lot of hours. Rude management. They take the job too seriously. Getting emails is annoying.

    Advice to Management

    Be nicer and more understanding. Try to give more hours to the people that have been working there for a while instead of hiring new people.

    I worked at Aéropostale part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Clean working conditions, 30-50% discounts on merchandise.

    Cons

    Management expects you to work off the clock and without pay, rarely gave legally mandated breaks to minors, embarrassed employees, management sat around and did not do work.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up. Stop acting like children and making fun of employees to make yourself feel better about yourself.

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

    Pros

    Great people to work with
    Fun interacting with customers

    Cons

    Management is terrible. Nowadays, at least 3 people are hired a week and none of them are trained properly. New manager treats employees as if they are less than her. No hours. Went from at least 25 hours a week to 10. Minimum wage ($7.25)

    Advice to Management

    Do better.

    Pros

    Ability to transfer just about anywhere and travel across the state/country to help out other stores.

    Cons

    They've made up a concept called "half time" to where they can work you over 40 hours a week, but instead of paying you time and a half, they pay you only half of your hourly rate. I believe there was even a lawsuit filed because the ambiguity revolving around this concept. They also don't respect Reservists' (anyone in the Army, Navy, Air Force, or Marine Reserve) training schedules. Not worth the money at all.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your managers better and they might stay longer. Respect all Reservists; we can't control our schedule and we're serving our country!

    Pros

    Some of the people are great to work with.

    Cons

    Pay sucks for SL "Manager." Position is only a "glorified associate" position. You do all the things an assistant does and get paid way less. Our DM hasn't realized the great talent that there was and has lost a lot of great employees simply for not doing raises (which is what they deserved).

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the amazing talent. That's why they have left/will continue to leave. SL deserves to be a part time AM position. Employee morale is low because of the lack of raises. There's a TON of work expected of everyone of us but how are we supposed to be motivated without proper pay?
    I've hated working for this company, and I won't be surprised if they go bankrupt again.
    -From a very disappointed SL

    Great company to work for! I love that they are really focused on community service.

    Cons

    Not enough hours are given sometimes
