Not enough salespeople!.
I will no longer shop at Aeropostale. They often have cute clothes there, and the prices are great. But the wait to get a salesperson to help is just HORRIBLE.
I have visited on multiple occasions where I have had to give up on buying anything, since I can't get a dressing room to try on anything since the salespeople are simply too busy. I feel really bad for the employees there, as there are typically 2 or maybe 3 employees at a time, and the store is always packed. The employees seem very frazzled and in a huge rush. They won't make eye contact with you, because they are running around trying to help someone else. I don't blame them at all for my bad experiences: I understand completely that they are absolutely under-staffed. However, that being said, it doesn't change the fact that shopping in that store is nearly impossible unless you are willing to wait a half hour to find someone who can let you into a dressing room, and then wait another half hour in line to check out.
