I worked at American Eagle Outfitters part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The discounts on the clothes were the biggest pro for me, you would occasionally even get seasonal deals where you could snag an entire outfit for $20. The environment was amazing and my coworkers were loads of fun. There were lots of opportunities for advancement and my managers were very flexible with my high school/college schedule!

Cons

The only cons that I encountered were occasionally receiving little to no hours on the scheduling and of course only earning minimum wage- but that's to be expected from a part-time job.

    Pros

    It was a great job for high school because they worked around my schedule.

    Cons

    It was tiring. I was on my feet the whole time and closing every night took a toll on me.

    I have been working at American Eagle Outfitters part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -I've never had problems getting hours off or switching around schedules with another employee.
    -The employee discount is pretty great.
    -My coworkers are very friendly, good-hearted people.

    Cons

    -The pay starts out at minimum wage for the majority of people.
    -Fortunately, this hasn't been the case recently, but some of the managers were very rude and didn't follow company rules, which made working for them not-so-fun.
    -AE is all about getting people into our loyalty programs. If you don't get enough credit cards, your hours won't be so great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall, AE is pretty great to work for. But it's not loyalty programs that make customers come back. It's great customer service.
