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

Pros

Very nice employee discounts. 40% is the original discount, but sometimes new selected items can be 60% off in the start of a new season. In the beginning of the holiday season there is a very nice clothes selection you could chose to 'equip' yourself with, for example this year I got a chambray shirt for 10 dollars and jeans around 15-17 dollars each.

The AE team was also very nice and are patient with new employees.

Cons

The scheduling system was old-fashioned book keeping. Although it was my first job, I have a few friends who have computerized scheduling at their jobs, which seem to make things ten times easier. It was a hassle sometimes to call-in and have the managers either tell you the wrong time or forget to mention a schedule was actually a call-in. Also it's hard to get time off since you have to do it two weeks in advanced - it's your fault if you can't make a work day, and your job in finding a replacement for your time slot ,can be inconvenient at times.

Advice to Management

Just do what they say.

    I worked at American Eagle Outfitters as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The job allowed me to work with many different people across a variety of tasks. The best part was going into the stores to perform hands-on evaluations of the products.

    Cons

    Working with different supervisors was a bit difficult at times. There wasn't always something to do, so I would at times be given arbitrary tasks or nothing to do at all.
