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

    Pros

    60% discount for approximately 12 items per month, 40% off on everything in store thereafter. 25% off for items in clearance.

    Cons

    $8.00/hr not enough for the amount of work completed. Number of hours scheduled fluctuates and is not steady.

    I worked at American Eagle Outfitters part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you are just looking for a part time job for extra money

    Cons

    zero opportunity for growth
    unprepared management.
    ridiculous closing time hours. (close at 9pm, I'll be home by 11pm)
    if you are bilingual, expect to speak your second language ONLY with customers, as they told me that's why they paid me.
    They cut your hours. You go from 25hrs to 5hrs a week sometimes

    Advice to Management

    your Store Managers, or any leadership should take a course or have special training before taking this job.

    I worked at American Eagle Outfitters as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I really enjoyed working for this company. My work schedule was extremely flexable. I organized brand advocacy campaigns and created various marketing plans

    Cons

    The only thing I did not like about the job was the online forms I had to fill out each week and after every event that I held.
