    Pros

    Assistant manager team are an amazing, hardworking, smart bunch

    Cons

    DM and SM consider opinions of lowlier positions unimportant

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Assistant managers are super important because they are able to give you information regarding the store and information to benefit business because they handle the day to day operations. Therefore, value their opinions!

    Amazing Culture

    Pros

    The leadership and culture that they represent is amazing at Aero. It is really like one big family here, where everyone looks out for you, as you do for them.

    Cons

    Really don't have cons to list here for working at Aeropostale. The culture is great, the people are great. Aero runs a pretty lean shop, but provides you the means to get everything done.

    Pros

    The managers and people working with you are great-it's a really fun atmosphere.

    Cons

    If you work in a really big store, you may have to work very late hours and stay until the store closes.

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

    Pros

    Pretty much just the discount if you like the clothes they have. I only bought Camis and socks, but it was a good price.

    Cons

    Working weekends, working 40-70 hours per week, unsupportive upper management, dealing with shoplifters and getting threatened by them. They are not doing well financially. Recently their stock was lower than when the first incorporated. They laid off hundreds at corporate level and are doing no 401k matching or raises, merit or otherwise.

    Pros

    The work environment is fun and you can wear whatever you want.

    Cons

    As a sales lead, you hold keys to the store. You are a manager in charge of hiring and training as well as working long hours. You have many responsibilities.... and they pay you 8-9 dollars an hour, so next to nothing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would consider paying your sales leads more. They barely get paid more than regular associates but are expected to do substantially more.

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

    Pros

    Discounts, flexible scheduling, easy tasks

    Cons

    Not enough hours(only given 5 hours a week), minimum wage pay, and they had hired too many employees, so the majority of us were working only 5 hours a week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't have such a large staff, so you can increase pay per employee, and they get more hours.
