    I worked at Aéropostale part-time for more than a year


    Easy to handle job, fun workspace, great management.


    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.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Aéropostale in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    This is a pretty laid-back, casual interview. Don't even sweat it. Just wear what you would consider trendy and stylish at the time (jeans and such are ok). What they did with me is they had my interview with a group of people. They would go around and have us introduce ourselves and ask us questions about our styles and what we think current trends are and such. Every question was pretty much about clothes and there was also one question on why we wanted to work there. Then they also had us create outfits for the opposite gender based off what we could find in the store. For example, if you were a boy, you would create an outfit for a girl and vice versa. If they think your outfit is stylish, then you're good. I've never really seen anyone not get hired once they reached the interview stage at Aero, so you really have nothing to worry about unless you say something ridiculous when you answer the questions or can't match clothing colors.
