Sales (Current Employee), grand rapids, miDecember 1, 2014
a typical day at work is 4-4.5 hours long. we always are checking in with the customers and adding items into their hands. we constantly talk about the rewards card and benefits of the in store credit card. I've learned to really be myself working in the retail environment. every item of clothing is a statement and different statements are okay. it – more... has helped me to build confidence in talking to strangers and becoming "friends first". all of the co-workers are great. everyone is very friendly and helpful. the hardest part of the job is being on your feet up to eight hours straight sometimes, it really takes a toll on the body. the most enjoyable part is my job always plays games to meet goals. such as every time you get an add on your name into a bucket. at the end of the day they draw a name and they could win a gift card to Starbucks or an article of clothing. – less

Sales Associate/Customer Service (Former Employee), Paramus, NJNovember 21, 2014
a typical day is just talking to customers and learning is how to sale becuase there is alot of other thing that can help you like emails that are send and lot of promotion. the hardest part is working in a walmart because sometime the manager wont work with you and can be difficult to sale if the manager is giving you a hard time

Awesome place to work part-time.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Lake Charles, LANovember 17, 2014
Pros: flexibility, discounts, fun environment
Cons: pay rate, limited hours available at times
American Eagle Outfitters is the perfect place of employment for young college students who do not necessarily rely on this job's paycheck to get by financially. The management team was fair, upbeat, and flexible. The rate of pay could be better, but the employee discount and employee discount specials are great and I was able to build an amazing wardrobe – more... at great prices with clothes that are well made and have lasted 3 to 5 years+. Overall a great employment experience. – less

Fun place to work during the holidays
Customer Service Associate (Current Employee), Monroeville, PANovember 15, 2014
Pros: great atmosphere, great culture, great management and coworkers, flexibility
Cons: pay rate
I was recently hired on at American Eagle Outfitters as a seasonal employee, I have since done a complete floorset, and completed cashier and holiday training sessions. The discounts for associates is great, and coming to work in a relaxed environment is very comforting. I love working for American Eagle while taking classes and making career advancements – more... for the future. Managers are great, understanding, and also do work just as us sales associates do. – less

Great place to work with clothing too.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Wichita, KSNovember 14, 2014
Pros: i loved being around nice people.
Cons: so many clothes to fold and fix.
I always would go to work and either fold clothes, work the dressing room or be the cashier. It was fun I always had a good time with the workers there the environment was great but it was just a seasonal job. I loved working with clothing and helping customers with what they wanted and loved to wear. The hardest part of the job was when I had to stay – more... over night to do the new displays for new clothing coming out the next day. I loved being a part of the American Eagle crew. – less

Sales Associate/Customer Service, Jean Expert (Current Employee), Plantation, FLNovember 13, 2014
Pros: discounts
Cons: part time, management
American Eagle is a pretty good company to work for but in the last year or so advancements and pay raises have hard to come by because of all of the temporary store managers that come in or just end up leaving the company. Ive worked my way from being a sales associate to a stock person to a jean expert. The hardest part of working at AE is dealing – more... with unhappy customers because a simple honest mistake of an associate. The most enjoyable part of it is having little challenges that make you team work a little harder while helping and making the company run faster and more efficiently. I feel that im too comfortable not being pushed to do more within the company. – less
