American Eagle Outfitters
Stock Lead (Former Employee) – Manhattan, NY – September 21, 2016
Overall, I enjoyed my experience of two years at American Eagle Outfitters. A typical day in the life of a sales/stock associate consists of a lot of moving parts; and there was always a task to be completed. Floorsets were a lot of fun, and a great way to get some good hours in! As AEO was my first real, retail job, I can walk away saying that I learned a lot about professionalism, and learning to create a work/life balance. I have learned so many skills in my work, that came as a familiar understanding to what I learning in school. After being promoted to a BOH Lead, I realized there were even more moving parts to the job I was assigned. The hardest part of the job was making sure that all bases were covered at all times, as things move extremely quickly in the fast paced environment. The environment was my favorite part of the job, as I felt comfortable and felt like I was always welcomed.
Overall, this company is a great company to work for if you're starting off in the retail journey and are studying things such as Fashion Industry/Sales.
