leadership as well as daily goals each day
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Farmington, CTAugust 16, 2014
I would enjoy going to work at American Eagle. They provided each worker with a summary of goals needed to be met each day as well as daily morning meetings. I loved to meet the goals and always gave it my all to the company. I appreciated my managers because they took the time to train us properly and answered any questions I had.

Perfect High School Job!
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Smithfield, RIAugust 16, 2014
While most teenagers work in restaurants, I was fortunate enough to work at my favorite clothing store! Not only was it super fun but I was also able to learn a lot about customer service and business policies. I also believe that every teenager should have the experience of working in retail because whenever I go into another store, I am always respectful – more... of displays and try to put things back exactly how I got them because I know it takes a lot of work to keep the store clean. – less

High Energy and High Traffic Workplace
Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Michigan City, INAugust 15, 2014
Pros: great discounts and perks
Cons: overwhelming, bad work hours
The work environment in American Eagle is very fast paced and full of energy. It is a very popular place to shop for all types of individuals. Although it can be an exciting place to be and can have an awesome staff to work with. The expectations of the company are unrealistic. For a management staff of 4, the company requires too much to be done in – more... too little of time. I used to think it was just our location, but found out that all AE factory stores have the same issue. – less

Great Working Environment
Merchandising Lead (Current Employee), Cheektowaga, NYAugust 12, 2014
Working at American Eagle was a great opportunity for me to learn about merchandising. My managers all wanted to help me learn and accomplish my goals.

A typical day as a merchandising lead included filling the floor and analyzing merchandising reports to see what is selling and what is not. I also delegate overnight shifts where we make display and – more... visual changes to the store.

I have not found a co-worker at American Eagle that I did not like working with. Everyone is very supportive and willing to help each other. Working as a team is the key to a successful work environment and that is what we have at our store. – less

Long Hours, negative atmosphere
Replenishment & Sales Associate (Former Employee), New York, NYAugust 11, 2014
I barely had a social life with the type of hours I kept at this company. There was negative tensions there, plus employees didn't take their jobs seriously. Lots of theft and prison atmosphere.

Really fun, enjoyed the people
Associate (Former Employee), Orange, CAAugust 8, 2014
Pros: be-yourself atmosphere, fun coworkers and customers
Cons: not many hours, dressing for the job was tricky
The work was fun to do, and it was great being in such a laid back environment. The day consisted of refolding shirts, restocking shelves, and going up to others and asking if they need assistance. Some people too shy to ask seem to sigh a breath of relief! It was great, it was fun. Supervisors told you what they needed to, but didn't put you down for – more... what you might have been doing wrong. I was only there for a short time, and my hours were a little lacking, which was a shame since I greatly enjoyed working there. – less

Great Place to Work
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Ellenton, FLAugust 7, 2014
A typical day is spent organizing clothes, finding outfits customers make take a liking to and working the cash register. After working there I had learned how important it is to be honest with the customer: if something fades quickly or isn't of the best grade of material. The management there couldn't be better, they are hard workers and great role – more... models. There are many co-workers so its hard to have a great team created with everyone but individual tasks were always done well. Fitting rooms was the hardest part of the job, it is important to stay organized and know when its okay to put clothing items back. Being on the floor and helping customers find the perfect outfit is the most enjoyable part of the day. – less

Sales Associate (Current Employee), Visalia, CAAugust 5, 2014
Pros: teamwork and discounts
Cons: no stable schedule
Make sure shelves are stocked and full, Cashier work, make sure all money is accounted for. Help customers with any problem that may come up and find a quick solution, and make our goal is made by the end of the day. I've learn to use our technology, how to scan items from stock and view what is in stock and if it needs to be filled. Management is great – more... they are very understanding of employees, they set goals for the company and its employees and make sure we meet them. Co workers do a lot of teamwork we help each other out when needed and make sure that a project gets done. I enjoy working with customers, every time a new customer comes in it's a new opportunity to start something different. To see what techniques can work with different people. Hardest part is the hours I would like to get more and have a stable schedule. – less
