I worked at American Eagle Outfitters part-time
great discounts for staff!
fun competitions that help you earn vouchers etc.
encouraging, sometimes praised when doing well
some managers very approachable and friendly making for good relationships.
paid for every minute you work not just from the start to end of your shift time, some companies dont pay you for the minutes that overrun.
good fun music playlists and good relationships with coworkers, fun environment
you can often book days off weeks in advance and still get scheduled for it then have to chase up managers to get your shift switched. this is extra bad when the rota only comes out a couple of days before the start of the week.
some managers come across quite petty and rude and make you feel small. i have seen other coworkers treated badly
forced to approach customers all the time and told off for not doing it when you can clearly see the customer wants to be left to look alone.
Advice to Management
sort out the scheduling as it should be your job when making the rota to take into account booked days off etc. and release it earlier.
the american customer service style of approaching everybody may work for some but a lot of english customers are different and its their worst nightmare to keep being approached so allow staff to make judgements based on customers reactions as to whether to keep approaching them
I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at American Eagle Outfitters (Stratford, London, England) in May 2017.
I applied online through their website, and received a phone call a dew days later to go to an interview the next day. It was a group interview with an individual chat after about availability etc. There were around 12 of us in the interview. I then got a call later that day offering me the position.
