Not a bad place
Customer Service, Cash Handling (Former Employee), Hamburg, NYNovember 5, 2014
During your shift at American Eagle, you can expect anything from an extremely slow, boring day, to a day where you consistently move throughout the store. I learned ow to multi-task, and accomplish all goals that I set during my shift. The management was acceptable, fair, and provided good feedback. The co-workers there made the job enjoyable, making – more... a fun and competitive environment. Keeping up with customer needs would be the hardest part, knowing if you have certain products, who else has what they're looking for, and keeping the customer coming back. – less

Great Retail Position
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Natick, MANovember 4, 2014
Pros: clothing discounts
Although I'm not sure if retail is where I belong, this was a fun position. Plenty of young people and fun people to work with, and always doing different competitions involving selling certain items with reward incentives. Typically a boring position but the staff made it entertaining.

Fun and great place to make someones day.
Retail/ Sales Associate (Former Employee), Houston TxNovember 2, 2014
I would clock in and check out the store goal. I learned how th communicate with customers. I learned how team work is used. Throughout the day I walked around the store making sure it stayed clean and the clothes stayed folded. I asked customers if they needed any help. I also recommended a style. Some days I would be in charge of fitting rooms. Giving – more... customers a room and if they needed something I would be right there. If they didn't want it, I had to fold it and put it away in the proper area. The hardest part of the job was floor set. We stayed over night and change the whole store around in three nights. And we had to make sure the store didn't look messy or the back. The part I loved most about this job was feeling appreciated by the customers and they telling me I was able to help out. – less

not enough hours given
Shipment Specialist (Current Employee), Clearwater, FLOctober 27, 2014
This is a job that would be a lot better if I could receive more hours on my work schedule. because of the lack of hours it is very hard to save money for wanting to do other things. however, working with the managers and alongside other co-workers, it is a strong working environment.

Could have been better
❸ Lead Cashier (Current Employee), Wayne, NJOctober 22, 2014
At times I really loved working here, but often the higher-ups have made working for this company almost unbearable. They make our management team miserable, which negatively impacts the associates that work here. As a company, they do not like to promote from within and there is never any job progression made by anyone I have been in contact with while – more... working for the company. – less

easy part time job for discount and extra money
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Erie, PAOctober 22, 2014
love working here, enjoy clothes and fashion.
On a regular day I usually run cash register and maintain my premise, make sure clothing tables are neat and sized for customers.
I also take care of online orders, if our online store does not have an item, they send it to us, it is my job to find that item in the store process and pack it up to ship to – more... a customer.
My managers and co workers are great. They are very flexible with the fact I work 2 other jobs and will help me out if I am in need of anything. – less

hard to follow
customer Service associate (Former Employee), The Woodlands, TXOctober 21, 2014
I loved the store manager when he was there everything ran smooth and everyone made their day, but when he was out or had to go to another store the other managers made their own rules and if you did not know that that specific manager was who you were working with then you did not know what rules were or were not being enforced that day and you would – more... be reprimanded for the rules that they would enforce that others wouldn't this was very hard to deal with on a day to day basis – less

Clothing and a discount
Cashier/Sales/Stock Room MGR (Former Employee), Harrisburg, PAOctober 20, 2014
Great job with discount on clothing. This is a great perk considering the fact that you must like clothing or shopping or you wouldn't be working here. I know from personal experience you can definitely move the company ladder. I worked there less than three months and became a manager,

The only downside is the extensive resets. This is the moving – more... of all the clothes in the store and relocating them as well as presenting the clothes to customers. They are usually done overnight and the yearly audit aren't too fun either. – less
