The company is not doing good business at the moment, top management leadership is poor and growth is not the best but overall, they're just another business trying to stay in business

This company is currently downsizing and possibly going out of business

Unfortunately, this company may not be a good job prospect because the company has been downsizing and may dissolve. I enjoyed my job very much while I was there. I was able to work independently, I traveled to various stores throughout the week to work on windows, and it was a great opportunity to meet a wide array of customers.

Thumbs down

Manager showed favoritism and allowed certain people to do what others were not allowed to do. Trash.The company was closed down so there's that on that.

Decent Entry Level Environment

No room for growth and very little pay. Good as a first job for work experience. No employee appreciation - very old school company with the owners putting little money into keeping the company alive.

Productive and excellent work place.

We used to interview twice a week, the other days will be dealing with daily management issues at the stores, also doing reference and background checking so we could bring new associates by Friday to do new hire paperwork and assigned them to their place of work. I managed one assistant in our personnel department. I would say that the hardest part of the job was getting the right person to match the store manager and that was a challenge. it was amazing to help people to get a job and to see them succeed and achieve their goals.

Pros

Nice environment

Cons

2 hours distance from home

We had a great team of staff to work with, and the location in Manhattan provided a great amount of diverse costumers to interact with regularly......

Productive place

This place is great place to work, it requires a lot of standing and quick thinking, the good thing is that they recommend and boost your talent to train to have an upper position which gives an employee an opportunity to advance.

Pros

Employee discount

Cons

A lot of hours worked

fast paced environment, customer oriented, sales driven.

A typical day at work entails getting register system started of the for the day. Receiving, processing and allocating shipment. Helping customers, giving great customer service. Ensure that the store is kept clean at all times. I have learned to stay focus on getting things done in a timely manner regardless of time constraints.Customer oriented sales driven friendly workplace. The hardest part of my job is wroking late nights. Most enjoyable part of my job is knowing that I motivate my staff to be the best, also knowing that my customers are happy with their shopping experience.

I enjoyed my years with A&E

I have nothing bad to say! Honestly I really enjoyed the people I worked with and the people I reported too. Most important was to be very flexible. My approach was always the more I know about other areas of A&E over my years there I felt were an asset to me and the company.

Pros

Flexibility

Cons

None

worst job i had,pay sucks,no benefits

Some of the clothes are really cute for reasonable prices,but i dont think these people cares about their employees at all. the stores are dusty,they dont give us any benefits,when we get hurt on the job they dont care about their staff,they closing stores down and firing people left right and center,we dont get paid enough to deal with these rude and disrespectful customers,you dont get any thank you or a party when you retire (not even a card) they dont appreciate the people who work hard for their company at all. they need alot of improvement. they only want to pay their workers a small amount of money when we work so hard for their company, we dont get any raise when we deserve it.the registers are cheap and slow (very old fashion) needs security guards because people always stealing in the stores.

Pros

cute clothes, great employee discount

Cons

bad pay, no benefits, slow registers, need security

Great enviroment

My management team was really the ones that were on top of things. Our higher ups weren't really good with communicating with us and they barely visited the store to help us with mechanical issues. The store itself was set up very well. We did our best to keep the store very clean and organized. Everyone that worked there got along with one another, we were like a little family. We helped each other out all the time and I enjoyed working with them. The hardest part of the job was probably dealing with rude customers. In the end we settled it but they can be very hard to talk with. I learned about dealing with money for deposits which was actually kind of fun. I learned how to structure a wall with clothing as well.

Pros

Great teamwork ethics

Cons

Comapny organization was terrible

Productive workplace

A typical day at work was always busy due to the fact we were located in a mall. My co-workers however, always helped make the day slight easier. The hardest part of the job was assisting rude customers, no matter how rude some are, you have to keep a smile on! The most enjoyable part of the job was always meeting new people. Most customers were so friendly!

Pros

Discounts, hour break

Cons

always busy

Nice work environment

Accomplished many things at A&E Stores. Spent 17 years there and after writing over 520 programs to accommodate the business, things were running smoothly after years and as my salary increased , it just wasn't worth the money to have me there and just basically babysit a system that was functioning with very little maintenance.
