    Pros

    There is not one pro not one. NONE!

    Cons

    The pay is horrible, the upper management micro manage, you work ungodly hours, cannot manage staff because of upper managements constant involvement. they do not fully train you and just throw you to the wolves. How they haven't been sued amazes me.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be one!

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Aerie by American Eagle part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great discounts, down to earth and level headed managers. Will work with employees to further growth within company. Work hard and it will pay off.

    Cons

    Super strict about time and attendance, one-minute grace period. If you're pro-environment, product shipment may be an issue, as they use so much plastic for each individual item, ex. each undie wrapped and sealed.

    Advice to Management

    Not force employees in stock to listen to only Aerie music when store is closed

    I worked at Aerie by American Eagle part-time

    Pros

    Very generous employee discount
    Fun people to work with

    Cons

    Didn't receive any training, I showed up to my first day and was put on the sales floor, I had to teach myself everything
    Management seemed annoyed often that I didn't know how to do things or that I didn't do things quickly enough even though I was never trained
    Was fired for being injured on the job

    Advice to Management

    Train your employees
