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

Pros

I enjoyed working here while also being in school because it's a fun atmosphere where you get to move around, interact with customers, listen to music and stay busy. It's in the mall so you can run to Starbucks on your breaks and the employees are all fairly close in age which makes work a social experience.

Cons

Low pay and if you don't like your managers or don't get along with your coworkers I can imagine that would ruin your experience. Also, the floor set changes can go all night and are fairly miserable but they don't happen that often.

Advice to Management

Continue motivating employees in positive ways such as by recognizing specific employees that are doing a good job. (i.e. employee superlatives)

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

    Pros

    At the store I worked for it had a great store manager, and great staff which made it fun to work. They also offer good compensation at the beginning if you negotiate for it and amazing discounts.

    Cons

    The company is continually cutting payroll which makes it hard run a store. They are having problems keeping inventory in the store especially their jeans which is their top seller. I was an assistant manager. Raises are crap they gave everyone the same amount across the board. I got above target on my review and still got the same raise as everyone else.
