Great benefits, an pay. Fast paced. Great clothing. Professional company with 401k and stock options.

Be prepared to give 110% just to get by. A lot of turnover.

    I worked at American Eagle Outfitters full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This company is a great place to learn the business of retail. They are very organized and very on-top of everything. You will learn a lot of what you will use for future jobs and careers.

    Cons

    company hires from outside rather than promoting within for higher positions. They sometimes hire within, but you would have to work hard for the attention. Many managers have worked there for as long as 3-5 years before getting a promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Great company, just low possibility of receiving a promotion anytime soon.


  2. "good college job"

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

    Pros

    they work around your schedule

    Cons

    you don't get many hours. The store revolves around many part time employees so you might get 10 hours a week.

    Advice to Management

    You could save so much money if you weren't so fickle. Having worked as a stock associate I can say that Idk how much time and money you could of saved if we didn't have to SIZE jeans in the back. I could give several more examples of how you could save money but we will stick with that for now
