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

    Pros

    Was fun working with children's clothes

    Cons

    Zero work life balance, want it to be your whole life. I was in school at the time and they wanted me to quit and have open availability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you care about your employees they will work harder and better for you.

    I worked at Aéropostale part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great people for the most part. There's always something to do so you're never bored.

    Cons

    Some people didn't do their jobs. The company isn't doing well so they started blaming their employees for not "selling". Raises are very hard to come by!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more advice from your staff running the stores. They see the effects of new implementations and whether they work or not

    Aero gives their employees a lot of opportunity to advance their career. The company also truly appreciates their people and works to provide for their employees.

    They have some issues, such as inventory allocation, which is very frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep treating you people right, but help give them better tools to do their jobs!

    I worked at Aéropostale full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company really fallows and live by their values. Peoples have a voice that can be heard throughout the company. If you are having a problem with an objective, you can share your concerns without getting shot down. Usually you will get help or even can help change the proses to make it better. There are a lot of tools to help you meet your goals. Compensation is competitive and bonuses are available down to Sales Leads. Bonus plans are usually attainable.

    Cons

    Plans and objectives can change quickly. Promos, marketing visuals can change weekly, and sometimes multiple times in the same week. There is always a lot of work to do and payroll can be tight. Managers can't just organize and lead, they have to do as much physical labor as the associates to be successful.

    I have been working at Aéropostale

    Pros

    I love the people I work with! Everyone is so nice and helpful. It is a great place to grow and learn the ropes of merchandising.

    Cons

    The company could use a training program to help employees ease into their roles. Also, the company's financial standing isn't strong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train and develop entry level employees and assistants when they first get there to gain leadership and analytic skill. Also, a rotation program should be in place where each employee spends time in each department so that everyone has an understanding of how the company functions and why it is important to know about each role.

    I worked at Aéropostale part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Improved on things such as my customer service in the store, along with my teamwork with others. Along with that I think this is a great part time job for college and high school students.

    Cons

    Need to change or get rid of the call in system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of call system I think you should only have to call in if your really needed.

    Short-lived yet pleasant experience overall.

    Current Employee - Part-Time Sales Associate in San Diego, CA (US)

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

    Pros

    Everyone is easy to get along with and the job itself is relatively easy. A wonderful place to work for your first part-time job! My store is closing down; however, this company does exude great values.

    Cons

    Scheduling seems chaotic and there is a lack of professionalism. Hours are normally added on last minute and there seems to be favoritism at play.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    During the time I've worked at Aero I was scheduled during school hours. I was confused and I could not find someone to trade shifts with, yet my manager did nothing. My education comes first. I believes the managers need to take control while still being relatively fair in the work place.
