Overall Reviews at American Eagle Outfitters

Brand Ambassador | Brooklyn, NY | Jan 5, 2020
Productive and a fun place to start a retail career in.
I enjoyed learning about a retain business within American Eagle Outfitters. Although customer service in New York isn't the easiest I learned to deal with every kind of situation as well as enjoy the energy of giving back to customers.

Be friends with who you work with.
I left the company because they were closing stores. Displaced a ton of stores and associates in my area. Loved the discount though, but not flexible with having a set schedule.
Sales Associate | Philadelphia, PA | Aug 8, 2018
Productive holiday sales day
The sales during the holiday are very good. They have the place well organized during that time of the year. In addition to having really good managers that know what they are doing.
Receptionist/Secretary | Carolina, PR | Jul 17, 2018
Very Competitive Environment
Basically, my job was to replace any Secretary, Coordinator or Clerk who was on vacation. This position helped me gain a lot of administrative experience since I worked in different offices with different tasks. Lots of benefits.
ProsLots of Benefits
Replenishment Manager | Manhattan, NY | Jun 4, 2018
Fast paced
Fast paced environment. Always on your feet. Crazy hours, depending on your store location. Hard to advance, they tend to hire from outside the company, at least with the stores I've worked at.

Assistant Store Manager | Charlottesville, VA | Dec 1, 2019
Could have been better , think of mean girls . Regina George Is every store manger, every dm everything is just eh and fake and kinda rude but it pays decent
Customer Service Associate / Cashier | Charleston, WV | Jun 11, 2019
Fast paced workplace.
I learned a large amount at AEO. I learned what it meant to truly put customers first. The management was okay for the most part, but there was some major conflict with abuse of power. The hardest part of the job for me personally was doing stock by myself. The most enjoyable part was helping customers find outfits they were comfortable and happy in.
ProsDiscount on clothes
ConsShort breaks(sometimes none), Poor management
Passenger Service Agent | Nederland, TX | May 16, 2019
Ticket and Ramp Agent
Fun, enjoyed traveling on my days off. We only had to pay the tax and fly on a stand by basis. Overall, every employee from all the other airlines at BPT got along very well. The competitive atmosphere was always something that we all had fun with.
Retail Assistant Manager | Irving, TX | Mar 29, 2019
Competitive & Fun
There was always something to do there, you would make sure things would get done in the store, make sure your numbers would good and lastly try to make the job fun. I enjoyed meeting different people and helping them with anything they needed.

What would you suggest American Eagle Outfitters management do to prevent others from leaving?
Asked Mar 22, 2017
Not be racists
Answered Jan 26, 2020
Give a better work life balance, respect and give appreciation to your hardest workers/managers, schedule hours properly for anything stock related so people don’t have to stay late every night feel unaccomplished and get burnt out. Take responsibility for your own team rather than putting that work and pressure on the best people all the time without warning. Employees are not robots you can rewire with passive aggressive antics.
