Cashier and Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Paramus, NJ – March 21, 2018
Too many managers or supervisors in the store who tell you to do too many things at once and contradict each other. Work itself wasnt bad, pay was cheap for the work that was done but that is why the company is so profitable..

Very flexible around your schedule if you are a college student. I have worked for this company for several years and the culture is great. The retail world is changing with the rise of online shopping.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Kittery, ME – March 21, 2018
It was stressful on very busy days and often unorganized. I would get my break until an hour before my shift ended some days. Most enjoyable part of the job was my coworkers. Some managers were great, some were not. Customers are hard to deal with along with every retail job, but discounts were amazing and they only reason i stayed so long.
Salesperson (Former Employee) – Hingham, MA – March 21, 2018
While working at American Eagle Outfitters, I learned the makeup and environment of a retail environment, specifically in the fashion industry. A day in the life of my day consisted of folding clothes and organizing the sales floor, which became monotonous at times, but I had enjoyable interactions with customers and my coworkers.
Like any teenager American Eagle Outfitters is a perfect place to start working. You work with and see different people everyday, calm and fun environment and never a stressful moment. Co-workers and management were cool and I never had a hard time.
Doesn't pay really much, teaches you a lot. Fast paced at times.The hardest Part was the pain in my feet after a long shift or around the holiday season. The culture was kinda like a family in the store I worked at. You meet a lot of different personalities.
The management is okay because the store changed store manager for so many times now to where the store is all over the place. The manager sometimes does not understand what customers want and does not understand employees.

Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Kennesaw, GA – March 14, 2018
A typical day at work would be filling the floor product making it look full and presentable. The people I work with are some great people. I have and continue to learn a lot from them. The management team is always willing to work with you and help you grow and be a great worker. They always want what is best for you. Normally days are very paced, trying to get a lot done in little time. Which would most likely be the most difficult part; getting everything done with the time you have. The most enjoyable part of the job is the friends I have made and to know that they are forever friends.
