If you can work here then you can work anywhere
manager (Former Employee), Dallas, TXJanuary 31, 2014
This company pays low and expects you to work hard. It was a daily challenge to do everything the company sends to do. I loved it because of the people that worked their, but the company made it so hard to stay positive throughout the day. Example of one day daily task: Open the store, work with barely any coverage, process shipment, change front table, execute promos (100% done before you leave that day) provide customer service to all, maintain store clean, reach or pass sales goal, and do this in one-to-one coverage (meaning two people at most doing the day and night). If you work at Aero you WILL work!

Hectic yet fun environment.
Customer Service Specialist (Former Employee), Roseville, CAJanuary 30, 2014
Pros: good music sometimes, great co-workers
Cons: crazy when busy
Day consisted of making sure that dressing rooms were clear, clothing was stocked and folded, then is cash register needed help then I'd sign in and help in the front. This job taught me how to really connect with customers and be confident in myself when it came to giving advice. Management was helpful as were co-workers.

Pros: forming friendships with co-workers, good discount.

Other assistant and co-workers out to tattle tell on you for every little mistake. Unforgiving and demanding. Managers had to multitask with little to no help.

Cons: little pay.
A lot of folding. I learned how to fold. Mangers were very nice and fun to work with. We had alot of games and competition between the co-workers and mangers. The hardest part was each day closing the store till about 2 in the morning.

Pros: discounts
Cons: n/a
Working with outstanding people who were passion about customers and helping them This environment has brought me into knowing the key facts about working in a retail clothing store. The discounts were awesome but people would have to be a good team player when it comes to busy days. Overall, I loved it!

I enjoyed the upbeat job, however my manager at the time was too friendly and pushy throughout his divorce and I left the company due to his behaviour.

Abercrombie
Sales Associate (Former Employee), New York, NYAugust 18, 2013
A typical day at Abercombie consisted of register training , running go backs , ringing up customers fast friendly and efficient . greeting customers that entered the store and my work area for the day. i learned a lot from working at Abercrombie & Fitch , team work was the main and most important thing that i picked up from working here. engaging more with customers and learning how to be more involved with different people. i gained a lot of friends , from working here , this was never my intention but my coworkers were extremely friendly and helpful . the hardest part of my job at the time was training others on the register , but i finally got the hang of it and now its a piece of cake! the most enjoyable part of working at Abercombie was the environment , everyone was friendly and upbeat , it really made coming to work fun and enjoyable.

Sales Associate (Current Employee), Gainesville, FLJune 26, 2013
Pros: aerocares program, student ambassadors, and discounts for employees
Cons: hours
A typical day at work is coming in with a smile working with an amazing group of people who put themselves to the side. To help others and meet the needs of other individuals. I have learned so much working in this store. The biggest quality I have learned is diligence and dedication. The management team is very helpful and always has time to answer questions if you are unsure of something. The co workers are the same, they want to see the store grow more than themselves. The hardest part of my job is watching a customer walk out not satisfied. do my best to meet the needs of each individual person and to see a customer happy is the most enjoyable part of my job.

MERHCHANDISE FLOW ASSOCIATE (Former Employee), Bel Air, MDApril 29, 2013
Pros: long lunches, cool management, chill enviroment
Cons: pay should have been more, co-workers could be mean at times.
I worked for Aeropostale on a seasonal basis during the holiday season and it was fun for the most part. It was definitely hard work back I the stock room, but it was also nice to have a quiet space all to yourself while you did your work. I would definitely work for them again.

Fast pased Apperal company
Sales Lead (Former Employee), Santa Clara, CAApril 5, 2013
Pros: all the great things the company is doing for the community and people in need.
Typical day at work is busy and always something to do. Improving customer service and helping new and older shoppers finding something for themselves as well as for a present for someone.

I have learned many skill while being there, all management such as payroll, setting goals for the day, training new employees. Fast upbeat environment with great management team and always getting support from the managers.

Hardest part of the job would be sometimes dealing with very difficult customers however once the issue is resolved seeing the customer walk away happy is the greatest feeling.

The most enjoyable part is working with a great team and having fun and upbeat day and even if it is one of the busiest days having a great team supporting you always made it a great day.

Pros: great people
Cons: bad hours
A typical day at work for me would be full of good attitudes. I've learned to always have a positive attiutude about anything that happens in the work place. I love all my past managers and I always respect them. I am very respectful and helpful towards my co workers, I believe in having teamwork amongst us. I think the hardest part of the job is when something goes wrong it always hits everyone. The most enjoyable part for me is getting to see and help customers everyday.
