American Eagle Outfitters Reviews

American Eagle is a great. I love selling clothes but management can either be a nightmare or a blessing. Imagine working on the sales floor you’ve already talked to everyone, you told them the sales going on AND you also offered to help them find what they were looking for. Most managers might say 'did you talk to them.. okay! cool, work on something and just check up on them in a bit' other managers might say 'go talk to them again, your job is to sell.' Some managers freak when the day is low and others understand the day is just a little slow. As a part time employee you get benefits like 60-80% off all the clothes! But you won't get full time benefits.. You don't get compensated on sales and the stability is dependent on how good you are at selling or favoritism. Unless you're at a very busy store, that doesn't already have core staff, you won't get many hours. The work/life balance is great, AE is very flexible and it's one thing I LOVE about the company! Hope this helps! :)

Working here is honestly awesome. I did not think I was going to like it and that it was just going to be a job until I found something that I thought was better but I very much enjoy it. My coworkers and supervisors are all nice and respectful. They work with the schedule that you give them. And my hours tend to be the same on a weekly basis so I kind of know what to expect when the schedules get posted. The store provides good discounts to employees, I used to never get anything that was in season because of the price but now I am always in season! I honestly love working here. I never go home and complain about how awful work was or how much I hate a coworker or supervisor. None of that is ever said. I do complain about being tired but so does everyone after a long day at work.
I liked the actual job, because fashion has always been an interest of mine. I held the title of Denim Expert and it was so fun and interesting to study the different types of denim and be able to help customers in finding the perfect pair of jeans. I also LOVED the curated AEO playlists. I still listen to them on spotify! My only negative experience was with the manager there.
