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

Pros

Good employee discount, 30 to 40% and once a month 50% and accelerated outfit discounts
Retail experience
Flexible scheduling

Cons

Management can be a hit and miss, in my case i had a great manager and then they switched half the management staff and it blew big time, so bad i had to report my manager to the company.
There is barely ANY hours to be given out no matter the time of year... beware of this if you want lots of hours in a job.
Can be very tedious folding clothes and doing recovery especially when its slow...
NO ROOM TO GROW AT ALL IN THE COMPANY!! You have to be 21 just to be a stupid sales lead...

Advice to Management

Stop overstaffing during the holidays
Get more experienced managers
Change promotions to management...

    I worked at Aéropostale full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Aeropostale is full of high energy, well rounded people. The company as a whole feels more like a family. From the Part time associates all the way up to your regional manager you feel like you work with them and not for them. Aeropostale also offers an amazing training program which if you utilize it correctly you can become extremely successful.

    Cons

    I had a great chance to work with many DMs and RMs in the company. Most of them share a similar management style. However I didn't meet a few that did now share the honest and caring style in which everyone else did. I also wish Aeropostale had a better way to communicate open positions in the company. communicated to other

    Advice to Management

    Have better training for DMs. have better communication for open positions. Perhaps an internal website to look for open positions.
