I worked at Aéropostale part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

it was great as an introduction to retail, a hands on environment that had a specific duty and included all members of the team in the responsibility.

Cons

in my second year of working there i noticed the company trying to gear itself more towards the likes of hollister and abercrombie. they started hiring solely based on looks and gave hours that way as well.

Advice to Management

stop trying to fix something thats not broken people like the store bc it wasn't like other places,
