Supply Chain Associate (Former Employee), Warrendale, PASeptember 19, 2014
Pros: lots of little company perks, great people, great environment
Cons: warehouse environment, no windows!
I did a variety of jobs while at American Eagle, but my last years were spent in the logistics department handling freight payment. I learned a number of things pertaining to retail and shipping, quality assurance, and freight payment.

This company was the best I have ever worked for and I was very upset when I had to leave due to my own personal situation – more... with the birth of my daughter. I loved nearly every aspect of this company and everyone I worked with and for. American Eagle, I felt, was a very "people-friendly" company. They treated their employees very well, and it was a fun environment for the most part.

The most difficult part of this job for me was learning the freight payment position that I sort of "fell" in to. It had been vacant for quite some time, and there were piles and piles of freight bills that needed addressed. I had to learn a lot, mostly on my own, as I had very little training.

Most enjoyable part of this job was the interaction with my co-workers and also the reps from the trucking companies and all the payment reps I communicated with at the freight companies. I worked with many wonderful people and had a wonderful relationship with most everyone I dealt with. – less

Best Denim in American
Store Manager (Former Employee), Traverse City, MISeptember 19, 2014
Pros: constant learning through "aetv" for all employees stream lined from corporate.
Cons: face to face communication within district as well as region has gone down
American Eagle is really trying to drive the movement of "real" marketing. Starting with the Aerie brand and now all of AEO, American Eagle is doing their part to teach how "I'm perfect" is because we are imperfect.

Any other information is confidentional and can be discussed on a by topic basis.

Developing a sense of fashion
Lead Stock Associate (Former Employee), Lombard, ILSeptember 17, 2014
Pros: fun team of coworkers, flexible schedule
Cons: standardized stock organization
American Eagle Outfitters was the most fun I had while working a job. Receiving and processing stock enabled me to develop my organization skills and fine-tune my time management. Working only part time, the stock room would fall into chaos in the hands of sales associates and it was important to not only bring in new merchandise but keep the current – more... stock organized as well.

The management team I worked with was phenomenal. They were very flexible when it came to balancing work, social life and school. – less
