Productive and fun workplace.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Barrie, ON (Georgian Mall)January 24, 2015
Pros: discount, atmosphere, energy, people
I typical day at work consisted of everyday duties. Duties that included; ensuring the store was clean for customers, making sure that all the clothing looked appealing (eg. folding t-shirts that have been unfolded by customers), greeting customers and asking if they needed assistance, etc.
I learned through this job very important customer service qualities. It was my first job so I was learning everything for the first time. I believe that Aeropotale was a great company to learn skills from in terms of customer service. I also learned how to operate a cash register, I found this to be very useful because the skill is often required in many jobs, being well experienced with it is very useful.
Overall the management was good, however after making a comment about cutting my hair to donate to cancer I was told that I would no longer be able to work there because I wouldn't look good enough for the companies standards. I found that comment to be very discriminating and it changed my very on the job and my experience.
My co-workers were very great people, we all built great relationships with one another and each of them were hard workers which was great to work with.
The hardest part of the job was keeping up with maintaining the appearance of the store, only because it needed constant attention. Even though it was difficult I enjoyed it, I gained time management skills from it and learned how to work efficiently.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the environment. I would go to work and there would always be a positive vibe in the store.

Sales Associate (Former Employee), London, ONOctober 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 throughout the beginning of my pregnancy. There wasn't anything too difficult and I knew how to do a lot of the stuff.

Pros: meeting new people and working at another retail store

When I had my first day at Aeropostale, I would say I was not really oriented about the housekeeping of the store. I only worked at Aero for Boxing Day.

Sales Associate (Current Employee), Mississauga, ONMay 6, 2014
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. I was promoted from a greeter to a cashier and then a floorset specialist. I worked after hours to change all the product within our store thus improving the theme of our store every month to meet company standards. The hardest part of the job was working during holiday hours thus helping multiple clients at once and doing more than one task at a time. The most enjoyable part of the job was working as part of a team and building healthy relationships with my co-workers.

seasonal employment
Sales Associate (Former Employee), LondonApril 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.
