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

Pros

A lot of networking potential. Opportunities to learn different aspects of the company and procedures.

Cons

So much time changing marketing with each pricing change and rearranging the store. They are all about getting product out the door and not enough payroll to make to store presentable.

Advice to Management

Be ready to sacrifice a lot of home life.

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

    Pros

    The manager of the store was really nice and hired me even though i had no experience. It was/is really good experience!

    Cons

    I had no hours and so i made barely enough to just have money to spend to hang out with my friends. The songs are really weird too.

    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...
