    I worked at Aéropostale part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Easy to handle job, fun workspace, great management.

    Cons

    The pay rate was bad.
    The hours were also bad.
    Scheduling was never focused on anything in particular except whether or not you wanted to work those days.
    The new "Aero Now" is cool, but you're pressuring and potentially harrasing customers. No one wants to be pressured.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If this is towards upper management:
    - Amend some policies. I worked over 30-hours a week, and I was a Sales Associate. I got paid $7.25 an hour. I originally planned on becoming a Sales Lead when I was was of age. However, it was changed. The Sales Leads don't pay attention to detail like they're supposed to. The Store Manager relied on ME to help train the Sales Leads, and the other associates. I was there longer than: SM, SL's, and all of the associates, and I was still getting paid $7.25 while doing a management job.

    I have been working at Aéropostale part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    As a college student, I needed flexible hours and I got them. Pay rate is somehow good but you can also bonus every month on sales (management only). Great work environment and of course it gets a little crazy during the holidays and summer break. Awesome employee discounts, 50% once a month and 30% any time at both stores Aero and P.S. Lots of opportunities to get promoted and higher pay.

    Cons

    No benefits for part-time management. Late shifts (overnights) every month during floor sets.
