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

Pros

The discount, the people, our store has FUNNNN. If you have fun, you will do your job effectively without feeling like you're there forever!

Cons

If you don't do your job, you won't get hours! But this is not a con... Favoritism, other people taking credit for sales if you're not vocal about what you do.... If you want to try to get promoted, you won't get noticed... Just sayin!

Advice to Management

Actually pay attention to what the people do on the floor, Compliment us when we actually do something right or when we save the day (you know what I mean) When we go to other stores, I do not want the management to try to ask us about our store secrets or "how we like the company" That's petty. Have more room for upward mobility, if some of us are working hard, it is for a REASON!

    I have been working at American Eagle Outfitters full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    easy work (common sense)
    work with people
    flexible schedules

    Cons

    unrealistic goals for management
    poor training for management
    poor communication throughout company
    Unprofessional up to the district manager level

    Advice to Management

    Become more consistent on policies. I was told something different by my store manager than my district manger which was also different from my lp auditor. Also, training and development is lack luster, I have a newer store manager and i feel as though my mdp is me training her not the other way around.....I have been in the company almost three years, 2 as a keyholder and i feel everything i have learned I have had to come across on my own for the most part.
