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

    Pros

    Some people there seemed to have great rapport, but they hardly ever worked

    Cons

    Had to work harder to make up for others slacking off. Managers picked favorites and acted very juvenile.
