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

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers, decent discount, enjoyed helping people find clothes that worked for them. Management was typically very supportive of customers finding their style no matter what.

    Cons

    Having to be available for shifts but not being called to take those shifts. This resulted in only getting 15-20 hours a week of work but having 30-40 hours blocked off in case they need you. Also like most retail stores pushing credit cards on people was encouraged.

    Advice to Management

    Use statistics to have better ideas of staffing levels.


  2. "Overall a good experience"

    Pros

    Great learning experience, friendly staff and everyone was easy to get along with. Excellent store discount and I wear their clothes all of the time so it was a win/win for me

    Cons

    Management was kind of unorganized. It was annoying always having to offer people perfume because the smell really gets to you after a while

    Advice to Management

    When changing the schedule, alert the rest of the employees
