No opinion of CEO

I worked at American Eagle Outfitters part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

They are very laid back: I could wear crop tops (because thats why they sold) and they didn't mind my tattoo was showing. I was able to keep my cartilage and nose stud in, even though you aren't really allowed too, they were so laid back that they didn't mind. The discount was amazing: 40% off and 50% off on new things.

Cons

There was a certain manager there that was SO rude to me every time I came in, whether I was there shopping on my day off or not. You have to physically go into the store to get your schedule.

Advice to Management

Really check into the reasons why some people don't like that certain manager; he is not fit to be a manager.

    I worked at American Eagle Outfitters part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Cons

    -Very poor pay for what's expected of you
    -Little chance for advancement
    -Work can be unpleasant depending on management/DM
    -Depending on location, it can be very difficult to get to work during peak holiday hours
    -Holiday hours can be very stressful
    -Very late hours on weekends (schedule could have you listed until 10 p.m., you could be there until 12 or later)
    -Very unstable hours...you could go from 4 hours one week to 30 two weeks later
    -Hours could get cut mid-shift (could be good or bad depending how you look at it!)
    -Cashier hours depend on getting customers to apply for AE Credit Card

    Advice to Management

    Pay sales associates better! I was a lead cashier (one of two on the entire staff) and I was making $7.43/hr, when I was consistently one of the top employees. I never felt like my work was truly appreciated. While retail generally has a high turnover rate and everyone is technically disposable, treating the sales associates like they're worth nothing gets really old really quickly. WE are who keep customers coming back. If the pay weren't so abysmal, it's really not a bad retail job. The people are fun (depending on where you work, of course) and I had awesome managers. But spending 35 hours a week at a place where I was making barely above minimum wage wore me down. Valuable work experience for young people, but not somewhere to stay.
