Everyone is really nice, fast paced especially before holidays, staff and management are very friendly and kind. You might get some attitude from customers but just brush it off and don't take it too personally
SALES ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 30 May 2017
It was a pleasure working for Aeropostale during the short time I was there. The management and associates are very welcoming and make the work day go by quickly. During the holidays, we had theme days that made it more enjoyable. There were contest between the stores and within each store. These contest made working very productive during each shift I worked. But the hour & pay was horrible.
Brand Ambassador (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 25 May 2017
A typical day at Aeropostale is folding clothes or helping our costumers with whatever sizes they need. I've learned to multitask while interacting with costumers since it is part of our job description. The management is very professional but; but maintain to make sure they're staff members gets the benefits and all the training they need to efficiently perform their job.
Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Markham, ON – 5 May 2017
Management didn't know what to do Sometimes they disappear so they can go smoke outside Have unrealistic standards (example: make $3500 in sales in a 4 hour shift but majority of the clothes are on sale, like???)
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 25 April 2017
Most enjoyable part of the job was working as a cashier. I've had a great experience interacting with different customers. The managers were very accommodating of the busy life of a high school student during the year.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – 11 April 2017
I had an awesome experience working here and was sad to leave! Great company that cares about their customers and their employees! My team was great and we were like family. We had a few meetings together and lots of chances to bond. The work was fairly straight forward; clean, help customers, deal with cash/debit/credit, do visuals, all of it was enjoyable.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Victoria, BC – 8 March 2017
This was my first job, I enjoyed it at the time very much. The management at my particular location had a high turnaround, but were good for the most part. The coaching was useful and helped me towards my goals.
Sales Associate / Cashier (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 28 February 2017
Working at Aeropostale as a first job was great, my coworkers were considered family and everyone worked amazingly well together. I learned to strengthen my social skills and learned how to meet targeted goals each day. The managers were all friendly and great leaders to look up to at work.
Hardest part of the job was maintaining the store during holidays, it was expected that all products were kept and organized during store hours.
great managers and coworkers, part-time and full time available, easy going enviroment
holiday hours, sometimes part time only means 4-8 hours a week
Great place to gain experience, great staff and fun work environment
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – London, ON – 23 February 2017
A typical day at Aeropostale was working the floor and making sure clothes were folded properly, helping out customers with purchases and trying on clothes, and working cash. I enjoyed working at Aeropostale because I gained experience with working with a cash register and interacting with people. The social aspect helped me come out of my shell and be able to comfortably approach people. The staff was fun and hardworking, and the managers were always understanding and caring. The most enjoyable part of my job was helping out customers.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 21 February 2017
This was my first official job. I wished it wasn't seasonal. If I could I would have stayed there. I had the best time working there. Everyone was so helpful when you asked for help, understanding about personal things. Taught me everything that I needed to know, and made me learn what I know now.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 20 February 2017
Aeropostale was one of the best companies I have worked for. The job itself, as an assistant manager at a retail store could be a little tiring, but what always got me through the day was the amazing staff, and all the help you can get left right and centre. The management was so kind and helpful, from the CEO to the key holders. I had full benefits, 1 weekend a month off, and flexible scheduled work days.
