Pros: Near my home, Inside a mall, High discount for employees, Great coworkers
Cons: Most of paycheck went back to them, Not enough hours
Typically my day would be filled with cleaning, organizing, and making sure customers left with what they had planned to purchase and something extra. It was my job to make sales, but also create a bond with the customer(s). Everyone isn't the same, and working at American Apparel taught me a good amount about retail. People really do count on the sales associate to make the "right" decision for them when it comes to making a purchase. The a difficult part of the job for me was having to wear head-to-toe American Apparel, because majority of my paycheck would just go right back to the company. The most enjoyable part was meeting so many new people and being able to help them.
