    Pros

    we have a great and friendly environment, before you know it, you're part of a new family. we get pretty good employee discount. the management is great, hip, and understanding. they work around your schedule.

    Cons

    we all have a lot of duties, and we don't get paid enough for all the work that we do. there's not a lot of opportunity for advancement. a lot of customers suck at being customers..

    I have been working at Aéropostale part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great staff and some great managers. Discounts were great as well.

    Cons

    Not flexible with schedules. Whenever I was sick or had a family emergency, I HAD to have someone cover my shift, which was a hard thing to find. Also, the hours sucked as the schedules were all over the place. (Never ever consistant.) Sometimes, they'll send you home early even when the store was busy, and they'll use your on calls between 10-45mins before you were supposed to come in. Some managers were great but they really don't care about your personal needs, especially the store manager. Also, there's this new policy that you need to make a certain amount of sales before you end your shift. If you don't make your goal, you get less hours and scheduled less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It will start off fun and great, but you start disliking it when you realize that you don't get paid enough for what you do (minimum wage). Especially if you're still in high school, the schedules are all over the place and never consistant. Be prepared for on calls, they always say they don't need you but call you in 10-45mins before your shift.

    Pros

    Everyone was very nice and relaxed including Managers.
    Easy to reach/contact senior leadership in the store

    Cons

    Very limited Breaks
    Pay was minimum wage
    Hours were randomly given to me and I was never given a chance to voice my availability
    Lots of on-call and seemed to give hours to employees they favored more
    Customers are generally very cranky regardless of holiday or not

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give some voice as to availability of employees
    Definitely increase the pay

    Pros

    Good employee discounts on already cheap clothes, nice co-workers

    Cons

    Manager was always yelling at someone for "not doing enough", was rude and racist (told us to keep an eye on two muslim guys during a busy day when they were just shopping like everyone else), Store was filthy, Manager was unprofessional and had favorites, Hours for minors went exceedingly long and on school days stayed till after 12 am, always had problems with payment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people who actually know what they are doing and are professional.
