One of my favorite places to work.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Peabody, MAJuly 14, 2014
Pros: free coffee, great benefits.
Cons: customers
Starbucks is very well known for the benefits they provide there entry-level employees, so I'm not even going to talk about that. What I am going to talk about, however, is the atmosphere Starbucks believes that if you treat all your employees with respect they, in-turn, will treat each other and the customers with respect as well. I can say first hand – more... that is true. If you get a chance to work at Starbucks TAKE IT!!!!! - Who doesn't like free coffee? – less

Ok place to work
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee), Buffalo NyJuly 11, 2014
Pros: salary, freebies, atmosphere
Cons: no-one cares about you or your advancement
Most of the upper management are just worried about getting themselves promoted and dont really train lower management or part time associates.

the company itself is really great. They have a lot of incentives, free give aways and they know how to treat their associates....just when it gets down to management caring about you (District Managers or – more... Store Managers), good luck. – less

Retail is retail...it isnt that glorious
Sales associate, cashier, greeter (Former Employee), Kennesaw, GAJuly 10, 2014
Pros: short shifts
Cons: poor management, low wage, and not enough hours
Its only four hour shifts, but you have to constantly be working and moving for only minimum wage. But it is what comes with working in a retail environment

Seasonal job
Sales associate (Former Employee), Algonquin, ILJuly 9, 2014
I barely worked, because it was seasonal. All I had to do was fold clothes and greet customers. It was just a casual job, nothing exciting.

You either make it or don't
Sales Associate (Current Employee), LouisianaJuly 8, 2014
Pros: learn alot, easy movement up in the company, tasks are easy and repetitive so you get the hang of it, many fun events and promotions to keep morale high
Cons: management is picky and may not like you, there are employess that do less than they are asked
I have worked in the mall with various retail companies for about four years now and American Eagle is the same as any other mall retailer. It's like high school. The managers decide who they like or do not like, and you're either going to have a really easy/fun time or hate your job.

If you're capable of reading the signs and following tasks exactly – more... as you've been shown, you'll do fine. The store I work for in particular is very exact about their procedures, and management is in the middle of trying to find the perfect associates that are willing to work to the detailed standards of the company.

The main store managers are pretty transient, but the assistant managers are pretty stable and easygoing once they decide you're a good associate. It's fun and outgoing and perfect for anyone just entering college and needs a flexible job. The hard part really is just keeping things to company standard - especially when there are still workers who try to cut corners or just flat out don't do their assigned task(s). You also have to be a very good multitasker like any other associate for any other retailer. If you can't multitask, general service industry and retail is not for you.

I have worked on and off with this company since I began my career in retail, they've taught me everything I know and have even showed me a few basics in sales lead/key holding duties in case I ever had the open availability for moving up in the company. All my jobs are very pleased with my customer service and overall enthusiasm for work and I owe all of that training to this company. – less

Sales Associate (Current Employee), Wyomissing, PAJuly 8, 2014
Pros: challenges to meet goals every shift for gift cards, lunches (etc.)
Cons: pay, no pay for 30 minute breaks, not everyone is trained for all positions
I deal with customers on a daily basis. I am always a main ringer so i am always on register. If I close, I clean the store & double count the deposite for mistakes from the managers. All of my co-workers are hard workers but we have fun at the same time. the hardest part of the job would have to be having to deal with the customers everyday, a lot – more... of times they expect a lot from us & "customer is always right" get to their head so they feel as though they can tell us anything for a lower price on a product. The most enjoyable part is seeing the trends, helping dress people & seeing the customers leave with a smile on their face knowing that they enjoyed their service & will be returning to purchase more. – less

Great place to work for and plenty of chances for entry level management
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Florence, KYJuly 8, 2014
Pros: great work enironment, training, and advancement opportunities
Cons: schedules
Great place to work for those trying to move up to management. Fun and relaxed work environment. Training was top notch to learn sales, merchandising, and how to train others. The only downside was the schedules. You never have a set schedule and don't have the opportunity to have much of a home life.

Sales Associate (Former Employee), Austin, TXJuly 8, 2014
Pros: great environment, great staff, great managers!!
Cons: nothing
Great environment to work at. Such loving co-workers!! My managers were nice and helpful and listened with whatever you came to them with. A day at work would either be really busy or really slow. I got the chance to experience both and I enjoyed every minute of it. Helped customers with apparel and fitting rooms, folded apparel when needed and assisted – more... customers when needed. There will be times where you have rude customers but you just have to be professional and keep a smile on no matter what. I loved the music they would play while we worked. I loved this job! although I was only hired as seasonal I still enjoyed every minute of it. – less

SALES ASSOCIATE AMERICAN EAGLE OUTFITTERS (Former Employee), 1 Mall walk , Cross County , Yonkers , NYJuly 1, 2014
Pros: employee discounts, fashion experience
Cons: travel issues .
After clocking into work, we meet with whom ever is the LOD which means Leader On Duty, and they prep us for the hourly and daily goal that has to be made by the end of the day. We set goals for ourselves and explain to our manager how are are going to excel in it. Once that is said, we go to our section and start selling to our customers. If it gets – more... super busy, the manager might ask us to jump on the register to kill the line or help out in the fitting to put away some of the clothes the costumers left behind. During down time, we use that time to recover the floor and replenish on low merchandise. The most enjoyable part of the day is knowing that there is fabulous support from the staff. Everyone and anyone is willing to give out a helping hand. – less
