Supportive and happy work environment but unorganized
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Dartmouth, NS15 January 2017
Loved the people and environment but they were unorganized with too many employees to provide the hours that everyone needed. Would recommend if just looking for a some extra cash, not anything stable.
Pros
Good environment
Cons
Not enough hours

Good learning experience
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON11 January 2017
I felt very welcome in this work environment. It was challenging at times when the store was busy but I had great training and co workers to help me out. I really enjoyed interacting with all of the customers and helping them with any questions that they may have had. Overall, I feel as though this retail experience was a great opportunity and has improved personal qualities about myself such as confidence, time management skills, independence etc.

Travailler au AEO est vraiment amusant.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Brossard, QC9 January 2017
Les employer sont merveilleux et amicale. Nous sommes comme une petite famille. Ce qui est amusant avec AEO c'est que chaque employer n'est pas en commission; on doit atteindre l’objectif de vente tout en équipe. Le seul problème serait qu'on n'a vraiment pas autant d'heure que ça. Je fais 3h a chaque semaine. Donc les paies sont médiocre. Par contre, on peut profiter de bon rabais dont 60% dans le magasin et 25% sur le 60% des linges in solde (donc 85%).
Pros
Les rabais
Cons
Pas autant d'heure

Great corporate structure
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) –  Halifax, NS6 January 2017
AEO is a great company to work for with a lot of support. It is a very demanding job within a management team, which can be rough on work/life balance. They honestly try to give everyone proper work/life balance, but most employees are incredibly committed and the balance gets forgotten about.
Like most workplaces, there is drama. Most members work well together and are very supportive of each other.
Salaries for external candidates are competitive and they offer great benefits including RSP matching and Deferred Profit Sharing.
The company itself is well organised and has made some smart decisions in marketing, brand campaigns and corporate structure. This is a company that will thrive well into the future.
Pros
Salary, benefits
Cons
Long hours, heavy workload

fun, laid back, positive
Sales Associate/Cashier (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB20 December 2016
A typical day at work is usually me cleaning in the morning if I were to open as well as going along and signing bank deposit forms.
If I were a mid shifter then I do a lot of customer service and selling of the product as well as helping keep the tills going.
The hardest part of the job is making sure to keep every single customer happy, just because not everyone is going to be happy.
The most enjoyable part of the job are those times you make a customer happy enough that they leave the store with a smile on their face.

AEO Canada Distribution Centre & Transportation
Transportation Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON19 December 2016
Great place to work, very tight family atmosphere at this facility. Large number of staff with long tenure (8 plus years), so there is a lot of experience and confidence in overcoming business or seasonal challenges.

Strong program for on-boarding new associates, supported with a very detailed online and classroom training program.

Consistent with rewards for effort for individuals and groups; bbq's, outside events. Recognition is given often.
Pros
