    I worked at American Apparel full-time

    Pros

    Met and worked with so many creative people. There was a high learning curve, open to new ideas, great team atmosphere

    Cons

    There were many days with long hours. A lot of turn over not enough training and support, sometimes drama by younger staff.

    Advice to Management

    it would be great to implement new staff training programs, keep a high quality product made in the usa, and strong team spirit!
