Distribution Center Associate (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 11 January 2018
The day shift ran from 6:00AM to 6:30PM, my shift only Friday-Sunday. The morning starts with stretching and announcements, then to your station of the day, mine was DTC. You get 4 breaks during the day, 2 half hours and 2 15 minutes, giving you more than enough rest time for the length of the shift, and more stretching after the afternoon lunch. The management was very nice and understanding of pain/sickness on the job, however wasn't very accommodating when I was injured, sending me home when I asked for modified work. The hardest part of the job was likely the walking up and down the stairs constantly, but you got used to it. The best part of the job was the people, and how open the facility was.
This is an entry level job. Everything you do is entry level. Clean up, sort clothes, help customers, speak on the radio, make sure stock is put up in the correct spot, etc. A minimum wage job for a minimum wage work. Easy, simple and to the point.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 6 October 2017
A typical day at American Eagle was I would clock in and immediately start helping customers whether it would be finding a certain type of jean or getting their clothes sized. If the store wasn't busy, I would go around the store and organize clothes according to size. I was in the change room a lot helping customers get their sizes or I was a greeter during the busier days. At American Eagle, I learned that work can get stressful at times but it is important to stay positive for my other co workers but most importantly the customers. The hardest part of the job was the over night shifts because we had to rearrange the store in a matter of hours before the morning but it was a good experience.
Cashier and Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 27 September 2017
The workplace culture was fun and engaging. Everyday would introduce a new sales goal and initiatives for employees. The management and other superiors would engage with their employees in a positive manner to make sure tasks were being completed and that each individuals wellbeing was being maintained.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Etobicoke, ON – 26 September 2017
I enjoy helping customers at American Eagle Outfitters. I enjoy helping customers find the items they need, or just helping them with outfit ideas. When we have a busy day it's good because you are always doing something.
Sales Associate (Seasonal) (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 6 September 2017
American eagle is fast paced but boring, my shifts were identical right down to what was to be said, the only thing that differed were the sales. The best part of the job was the discount by far, but as management goes it was hard to grow due to inside opinions and judgements making it hard to go too.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 4 September 2017
American Eagle is great place to work if you enjoy folding clothing and dealing with rude customers, but at the end of the day completely draining. Horrible management and horrible hours. It can be nice when you've helped a customer and they are actually appreciative, but I do not appreciate the work environment at all between the managers and the associates, favouritism is definitely in play at my location.
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 12 August 2017
In this job it is not really hard to make friends, but it is kind of hard to keep up with the fast pace of the work, but you get the hang of things very quickly and the staff are very east to talk too.
Sales Associate/Cashier (Current Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 12 July 2017

Working at American Eagle, I learned different skills like organization, punctuality and responsibility. These skills gave me the opportunity to create a productive and efficient workplace that allowed comfort to customers.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Peterborough, ON – 6 July 2017
Shifts at American Eagle are very easy going and mostly stress free. Working there allows me to be around lovely people all day and in an upbeat, positive environment. I learned to stay alert from this job, because there is always someone that could possibly need assistance. The bosses and supervisors are all brilliant at what they do and they are very respectful. The hardest part of the job is just staying on top of everything at busy times, but the most enjoyable part is getting to see customers come in with a warm smile and leave satisfied.
Store Associate (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 3 July 2017
Customer service is a huge thing when working at this store and I learned a lot from it. As a growing individual with a minimum experience in the customer service area, it was a good experience getting to work in this store.
