Fun sociable place to work
Sales/stock (Former Employee), Barrie, ONSeptember 6, 2013
I'd clock in, grab a radio and head out to the sales floor. I'd go to my designated zone and work that area and help anyone in the store that may need assistance while informing people of our current sales. While working at American Eagle I learnt better communication skills and the skills needed to make sales. Managers and co-workers we easy to get – more... along with and fun. Very helpful when I was first starting out. The hardest part about my job was remembering all the different type of jeans there were. The most enjoyable part was being paid to hangout in a store in the mall with lots of people coming in and out, a store I usually would spend a lot of time in for free. – less

Cons: very little development or advancement opportunities, unpredictable schedule, poor management at higher levels, salary cap`s, massive turnover
American Eagle runs on a store by store basis, which consists of A team of manger's who oversee a staff of about 100.

The company itself has gone over various changes and staffing overhauls, Some for the better others for the worse.

My coworkers could be more developed and though have a passion to learn are under qualified or have received insufficient – more... training.

The hardest part of my job is the constant switching and changing schedule, Sometimes Nights, Day's, or Overnights. As well the Few to none possibilities of advancement through the company

I do enjoy managing and developing staff and have trained various manager's and associates throughout my many year's with the company.

The District Manager`s have had a poor presence, Provide very little training or development opportunities for Manager's. As well have had Constant rearranging and Continuous Changes in District`s Or manager`s in general.

Through american Eagle I`ve learned various Skills, Organization, Staff development, Scheduling, Time management, Problem solving, Customer first relations, Accountability and Forcasting. – less

Sales Associate (Former Employee), Regina,skJuly 7, 2013
Pros: discounts
Cons: enviroment
I would of enjoyed working at American Eagle alot more if the enviroment was alot more positive then negative.
Did not really enjoy working with much of the staff as they would always talk about one another in a disrespectful manner.
I did however enjoy all the customers and showing them all the new product. And laying the new product out. (so i could – more... get a sneak peak before everyone else.) – less

Upbeat and Encouraging Environment
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Burlington, ONFebruary 27, 2013
Pros: great work environment, wonderful product and staff discounts, fantastic store playlist
Cons: over staffing which may lead to less hours than expected
American Eagle holds wonderful potential for students looking to hold a part-time job in their extra time. It promotes positive work experiences by hiring young adults looking to improve themselves within the retail world. A.E. gives employees a chance to challenge themselves within a fast growing community, however there is a small issue with job security. – more... I was hired on a non-seasonal basis but due to over-staffind I was asked, along with other hired at the same time, to come back for the back to school season. Besides this small inconvenience I really enjoyed working at American Eagle as it provided me with an excellent place to expand my retail experience. – less
