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
