Current Employee - Sales Associate in Washington, PA (US)

I have been working at Aéropostale part-time (more than an year)

Pros

The discount is good at 30% but the company its self seams to be going in a million different directions.

Cons

only pays minimum wage, and they take forever to send out the schedule

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give some pay raises and send out schedules for the up coming weekend sooner than Friday night

    I have been working at Aéropostale full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -Truly a friendly bunch of people. Hardly any 'bitchy' fashion types
    -good work/life balance
    -if you're a complacent type, you can surely be a 'lifer'.
    -good vacation days and benefits

    Cons

    -Only way to get promoted is to stay much longer than necessary, or to get an offer elsewhere and hope for a counter.
    -no marketing strategy whatsoever
    -constant and moronic changes to appease business needs on the day to day, vs any kind of longterm strategy.
    -Had first year of no bonuses in company history, and i believe it will be a trend now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -fire yourselves, and hire people who understand what a strategy is and how to implement one.
    -The nepotism is demoralizing, and you are losing talented people because of it. More importantly, be covert about it, because the people you give a halo to are embarrassingly dumb, and make you look the same.
    -Pretending to pull the wool over your employees eyes is offensive and results in higher turnover.
