    I worked at Aéropostale

    Pros

    Great training programs for management, excellent leadership (DM/RM/corp partners) ability to grow and move up in the company, fun atmosphere, and great tools to help make daily goals.

    Cons

    The peak seasons could've been supported better with payroll hours. Training part time associates would cut into your floor coverage, making it difficult to train during the peak seasons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The stores need more hours to help support the daily tasks so that it doesn't interfere with floor coverage, hindering the customer experience we are trying to deliver. This would also ease the stress of the management team, less turn-over. Every store runs completely different so not all stores need the same amount of hours. Give your part-time employees raises, it's difficult to keep great talent when they are stuck at minimum wage every year.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Aéropostale.

    Interview Details

    Applied in person. Got a call back for a group interview with manager. We came to the interview dressed casual yet trendy. The manager asked typical retail questions like "why do you want to work here", "give me a fun fact about you", "how would others describe you", "where do you shop"...etc. Make sure you are friendly and upbeat and seem eager to work there.
