Sales Associate/Merchandising (Current Employee), Costa Mesa, CAMarch 31, 2014
Pros: fun environment
Cons: weak compensation
American Eagle provides a comfortable environment for employees. I was able to learn multiple skills and constantly working on different tasks. Compensation and moving up in the company is weak, but managers are very flexible and supportive. Hours every week vary. One week when it is busy I might work 20-30 hours, while another week I might work only – more... 6 hours. I enjoyed always meeting new co-workers and working in different parts of the store. – less

STORE ASSOCIATE (Former Employee), 160 N Gulph MillzMarch 30, 2014
Pros: discounts, free lunch, fun managers
Cons: short breaks, unorginazed, rude employees
To many employee's difficult to stay on task, rude customers and employee's and no hours/work days. I learned that working with working hard pays off and co workers were difficult to work with. The hardest part of my job was staying focus on one task because there was to many things going on at once. The best part of my job was meeting different people

Overall good and relaxed environment to work in.
Customer Service Clerk (Current Employee), Visalia, CAMarch 28, 2014
Pros: relaxed environment, easy going people, good products.
Cons: sometimes there is not enough coverage in the store to take your breaks, we dont get scheduled enough hours.
On a typical day I assist customers and help them get any sizes or back stock they may need. I provide customers with fitting rooms and help them if they may need another size. I work on go backs and recovery when I am not assisting customers. The most difficult or challenging part of the job is trying to deal with customers who are not polite and doing – more... all the floor set work for the store and changing all the promos. The best part of the job is getting genuine people who truly appreciate your help and acknowledge your effect, that is very satisfying. – less

Great place to work and find your inner stylish self along with great friends
Merchandise Lead (Current Employee), Charlotte, NCMarch 25, 2014
Pros: welcoming environment, get to work with clothes and styling.
Cons: not enough hours
When I first started working at American Eagle Outfitters, it was a new experience for me. I had only worked in the food industry and never in retail. I was so excited to work with such a welcoming family of employees. A typical day consists of welcoming the customers into our store and informing them of all the great deals we have going on. Making – more... sure that each person has an easy and enjoyable experience is key to our objective. An associate will check back with the customer and connect with them based on the certain item they are looking at or are looking for. You give them suggestions of what tops will go with what bottoms to complete an outfit to their satisfaction. Once they have found everything they wish to purchase, you ring up their merchandise and thank them for coming in. As the merchandise lead, I am responsible for making sure that all of the products we carry are represented on the floor and look full and welcoming to the customers. This sometimes means rearranging how a wall or table is laid out to look its best. The managers I work with are great leaders and each have their own way to teach associates something new. This is needed to make our team a well rounded group. Each manager makes sure to be in a strong connection with each of their employees, which makes this team feel more like a family. I can only count the number of bad days that i have had here on one hand and most of those days did not have anything to do with the job itself. My co-workers are all younger than me but this has not been a problem. They all respect me and are wonderful and fun to work with. The most difficult part of the job is dealing with the customer service. People are always trying to get the best deals whether they the right ones or not. When a customer makes a fuss about something the best you can do is just get through the discussion in the best way that will make the customer happy and remember that if they were a particularly frustration customer, you can just go to the back and cool off until you can bring your bright smile back to the sales floor. Service with a smile! With each frustration customer comes ten wonderful customers that would love your help and appreciate any deals you are willing to give them. Making the customer happy with their purchase is a reward in itself. – less

Got clothes at great prices.
Sales / Stock Associate (Former Employee), Augusta, MEMarch 25, 2014
Pros: fun co-workers and discounted clothes.
Cons: lack of interest
This was just a job I took to help pay for my apartment while I attended college. It was not a completely enjoyable job because I am not a big "fashion guy". However I did work well and get along with my co-workers and boss. The hardest part of my job was that I had a tough time learning the "cool looks".

Sales Associate (Former Employee), MOMarch 19, 2014
Pros: free lunch
Cons: short breaks
My job was very fun. I learned to always have a smile on my face when I am greeting the customers, and making sure they found everything okay. My co-workers were very nice, I also made new friends. The hardest part of my job would have to be trying to sell items to the customers. The most enjoyable part of my job was helping customers put outfits together – more... letting them know what looked right just for them. – less

The up and coming of a retail store
Trainee (Former Employee), North Myrtle Beach, SCMarch 18, 2014
Pros: discounts, benefits, and over-time
Cons: management
The American Eagle store was just started and I had to help build the new franchise. I had to get the boxes from the truck and help sort the clothes in storage. My co-workers were great people, who were cool to work with. A typical day at work was about seven through nine hours of work. I would be in the front of the store, in the men's department, – more... or the discount department. I would assist my co-workers and customers. I would fold clothes and bring out clothing if it's low on stock. The hardest part of the job was standing up all the time. The management was above average, because some managers would place me on the work schedule; when I had open houses for colleges. Some managers would work with you and help me out. The were cool and fun to work under and enjoy them. The most enjoyable part of my job would be talking to my co-workers and customers. I learned a lot about how retail works and how to handle different customers. I also had to learn that you have to have proof of information for all managers. One manager told the company not to hire me anymore, because I miss days; when I was at colleges. I went to the store and the other managers side with me, but that one manager told me I should have give him the information. – less

Great enviornment
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Dubuque, IAMarch 18, 2014
I work at least 4.5 hours a week which isn't a lot. What I do on a normal day at work is to watch our daily videos about AE News or about the new clothes that we have. The videos help us as sales associates to learn how to communicate with customers better and give us a better understanding about certain clothes. With this being my first job it helps – more... me become an outgoing person with customers. My mangers help each co-worker if we need help, they also give us tips on how to sell clothes and sell our credit cards to customers who spend a lot. I enjoy the work environment, my co-workers and managers. We all get along well. – less
