Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at American Apparel part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great discount, and lots of free clothes. As a merchandiser I have little direction and am allowed a lot of creativity. Fun people to work with and cool clothes.

Cons

Only got a .50 raise in one year. Company doesn't provide vacation or sick time, even after years of working there. No room to grow unless you want to to move to CA.

  1. "Superficial in Hiring Process"

    I worked at American Apparel part-time

    Pros

    Great discount on apparel, people are generally nice and fun not a terrible work environment

    Cons

    I've seen them judge people immediately when in the hiring process - the more attractive people are on the floor and less attractive, generally heavier employees go in the backstock. I understand that they need people to sell the clothes in the way that models too, but it is disheartening in 2013 to still face these discriminations
