Sales Associate (Former Employee), London, ON – October 19, 2014
Pros: competitive pay, amazing managers, great co-workers, great hours
I typically worked the opening shift as a lot of the employees were students, so I'd get the store prepared for opening by restocking shelves, making sure the floor is clean and everything is put back in it's place. I'd assist customers with help on the sales floor, fitting rooms and at cash. My management and co-workers were amazing and supported me – more... throughout the beginning of my pregnancy. There wasn't anything too difficult and I knew how to do a lot of the stuff. – less

Pros: mangement and teamwork enviroment was enegertic and friendly
Cons: not enough hours per week
A typical day at work consisted of helping customers with our product inquiries and working as a cashier. I learned valuable cashier training skills throughout my time at Aeropostale.

Sales Associate (Former Employee), London – April 2, 2014
with the Christmas time seasonal employment it was short, I did not learn a lot about sales as I was put at the front of the store to welcome people. I had hoped to learn more, did not get to know staff very well.
Sales Floor (Former Employee), Guelph – February 18, 2014
Pros: good discount
Cons: little hours
a typical day at work is to sign in to the system and cover your sector of the floor and make sure that there is never too long of a line up. Management was very understanding and very lenient with hours.
Learned a lot more about being in more of a managerial role.
Company Ambassador (Former Employee), Toronto, ON – February 3, 2014
Being given the opportunity to be a company ambassador has taught me many things about how managers do their work and what its like to be in a higher position of authority. Being able to sit in on interviews and help with the hiring process has taught me a lot about who fits as a good employee and who does not.
Part Time Sales Associate (Former Employee), Vaughan, ON – January 26, 2014
Pros: discount on clothes
Cons: forced to listen to music all day, rude customers, clothes are always left on the floor
I worked there over the Christmas break (including Boxing Day), so it was very busy every shift. I had to constantly be picking up clothes from the floor and refolding them and reorganizing all stations so that they look presentable. Many people don't like this, but I personally love organizing. The management was great, very friendly, and we even went – more... out for bowling once! – less
Sales associate, Fitting room specialist, cashier (Former Employee), West Edmonton Mall – October 29, 2013
Pros: good people, good breaks
Cons: not enough hours, no full time jobs
A typical day at work you would go in and figure out where you were going to placed for that day and you make sure you know how to do that job and make sure you know all the sales and how much money we wanted to make that day. I learned that you need to make sure you know pretty much everything about the store because you have no idea what question – more... someone can come in and ask you and you always want to make sure that the person gets the best deal they can. Make sure that your management knows that you know what you are doing and make sure that if you have a question you can go to them and ask them. The hardest part of the job was making sure you know everything about the sales and which clothes are for that sale and which ones aren't. The most enjoyable part of the job was everything, the atmosphere and everything. – less
