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

Pros

Fun atmosphere, great discount, great health benefits, and great pay.

Cons

Very minimal payroll to give out, customers complain that there isn't enough help on a daily basis.

Advice to Management

There needs to be more payroll to give better customer service. Online returns should not count against the store.

    Cons

    -Low pay

    -Irresponsible and immature associates

    Have a more extensive interview/hiring process for the store management team of this company. Send investigators monthly to stores to get a glimpse of how stores are being run.
