    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

    Interview Details

    Applied and interviewed on campus. Case given the day before on picking men's graphics. You have to pick certain styles/ colors then present your choices. The night before they have a info session where you get to meet the recruiters and people who have gone through the program already. Good opportunity to learn more about the position.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

    Interview Details

    First round: on-campus interview. You need to take a Wonderlic test before your interview. Also, their pre-interview session is a "mixer party" and they see how you are interacting with others. They give you a project the night before the interview - it was a fun experience, and gives you an idea as to whether you want to continue doing this or not. Was interviewed 1:1 by two interviewers.

    Interview Questions
    • - what is your biggest weakness?
      - what is your biggest accomplishment?
      - what is most important to you? (money, fame, people, etc)
      - What is the current fashion trend?

    Leadership Development Program Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview consisted of two 30-minute interviews followed by taking the Wonderlic test (50 Questions, 12 minutes). I applied for the program through my university's career site and was contacted to set up an interview about a week later. The first interview I thought went really well, the recruiter and I had a fun conversation getting to know each other and consisted of me telling her about my future goals. The next interview was torture. The recruiter was extremely rude, almost argumentative towards my responses, kept looking at the clock, and at one point rolled her eyes at one of my responses. I didn't feel the questions were hard, mostly consisted of future goals, why you think you would be a good fit for the company, and behavioral questions. After my second interview it really made me question if I would want to work for a company that would have a recruiter that was so unwelcoming.

    Interview Questions
    • Where do you see yourself in the next 3 years?

      Tell me about a time, you were in a group and there was a conflict, how did you handle the situation and what was the resolution?

    Store Model Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

    Interview Details

    I walked into the store and asked if they were hiring. The manager said yes (because they are always hiring) and she gave me a card with the application password on it. The online application took about 10 minutes, then I chose an interview date. I received a call the day before confirming my interview time. Then I got a second call from the manager who I has spoken to earlier and she told me to wear Abercrombie clothes and natural make up. Once I got to the interview I was told it was a group interview and that they were expecting about 5 people. It ended up being me and one other girl.

    The actual interview process was relaxed, and casual. We sat at tables outside the store and another store manager asked us questions. The total interview process took about 15 minutes.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

    Interview Details

    Group interview. Pretty laid back, suprisingly only one other person was scheduled for that day. Also fyi if you are in group interview, TALK to the other people.
    It shows you have communication skills and actually made me less nervous. Just harmles mild chit chat.
    Waited about 25 minutes, male interviewer introduced himself and was very casual.
    Asked each of us 3-4, major one being about diversity.
    I actually enjoyed myself, waiting to see if I will get a call.
    Fingers crossed.

    Java Developer Interview

    Interview Details

    I cleared the phone screening interview and was asked to come for an on site interview. The disappointing thing about their recruitment process is that in spite of taking time off for the face to face interviews, the recruiter didnt bother letting me know of the outcome of the interview. This reeked of lack of basic courtesy and respect for a candidate.

    Leadership Development Program Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

    Interview Details

    I secured an interview through our campus career coach. A recruiter from A&F was at the career fair at the school, which I unfortunately missed, but I connected with him through email. We met at Costa over a coffee where I gave him my resume and told why I was interested... Overall it went great and the recruiter was very nice. He didn't ask any technical questions, the whole point was to be nice and introduce yourself... he then gave me his email address through which he directed me to the interview.

    The first interview was extra easy, it was a pre-recorded set of questions, which were 1)your university, 2) your degree 3) where you see yourself in 3 years.

    The second interview was over Skype with a person at HQ. The lady was very nice and welcoming, which made the whole process less nerve- wrecking. Prior to the interview I was given an assignment, which I needed to complete within 24 hours. The assignment was fine, but you need to be prepared to explain why/what you did.. First half of the interview was behavioural questions, and the second was based on the assignment.

    Sales Associate (Model) Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and chose an interview date. I came in on that day and regretted applying there as soon as I walked in. The music was so loud that the manager couldn't eve hear me tell him my name and I had to repeat it THREE times. The scent they spray in the store also gave me a headache while waiting 15 minutes to be interviewed. We went outside and I was asked a total of three simple questions about who I was, what diversity is etc. The manage then went over the look policy which is absolutely ridiculous. They don't encourage individuality whatsoever. They want all of their associates to dress, wear their makeup, and style their hair a certain way. Abercrombie & Fitch should be happy that anyone still wants to work there!! While I was there a total of two customers came in. This store is doing really bad these days. I was told I'd get a call within a week if they chose to hire me. If they do call I will be declining the job offer.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Video screening interview, pretty simple. Prepare that you only get 1 shot to do this interview. Dress and look like an Abercrombie & Fitch employee. They will ask what is your name, major, school and graduation date. Also where you see yourself in a 5 years. There are 2 interviews over Skype, again dress like them. Know your resume, they will ask the basic questions and some behavioral questions. The first interview is with someone from HR. From your first video you send I got a reply from HR within 3 days so they are quick on this step. The second skype interview is from someone from your field. Their HR can be kind of slow so if your waiting 2 weeks do not feel bad they will get back to you. I am waiting for my second interview for skype.

    Interview Details

    I went to the store in Santa Monica and asked if they were hiring and then was told to apply online. I filled out the application and then set up a date for an interview and a couple days later I had got a call and was told to come in for a sooner date. The interview was easy since I had came onto this website and knew most of what they were going to ask. It was a group interview so that made it a little more easier for me. The whole thing was laid back but make sure you can make yourself stand out.
