    Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Attractive and must have bachelors degree. Mainly they will just focus on how attractive you are. Even if stores are understaffed across the district they will say no to perfectly good candidates who are not attractive. Ive been told that potential mangers have had terrible interviews but still gathered because they are attractive. I was also told that candidates can be taught all of the other criteria as long as they look good. This basically renders the process strictly to how you look during your first interview.

    Interview Details

    Group Interview for associates.
    One on one interview with District Manager for any management positions.
    Very basic interview process.
    After I became a manager I was giving group interviews on a daily basis. I always tried to make everyone feel comfortable about sharing and ask questions if they wanted.
    The questions are extremely typical, such as "are you outgoing?" "what would other people say about your personality?" "name a situation you have went above and beyond"

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was contacted within an hour by a store manager. I was not yet living in the area in which I applied, so we set up a tentative meeting for a week or so later. When I moved I emailed the store manager and we met in the store. About a week after this, I had an interview with the district manager. It was a pretty standard interview, and several days later I was given an offer. A college degree is required for the position, and I had previously worked for the company, which they seem to prefer.

    Interview Questions
    • Name a situation in which you could not meet a customer's needs.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    They require that applicants have a four year degree for this position, but do not pay what a degree holding person deserves.

    Sales Associate (Model) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

    Interview Details

    I was in the store browsing and one of the sales associates approached me and asked if i would like to apply for a "model" position, which is basically a sales associate who greets the customers and maintains the company's "look." I figured what the heck and was then referred to formally apply online, which takes 10-30 minutes. After that I scheduled a day and time for the interview. They explain that their interviews are very relaxed and are conducted in groups. I got there like five minutes early and there was only one other person interviewing with me, and the interviewer was about twenty minutes late. We were brought to a corner of the store away from customers, although the music was very loud. We were asked a series of questions that were extremely easy to answer: what does diversity mean to you/how have you experienced it?; how would other people describe you?; and what are some good qualities you have or something like that. It was a very quick and easy interview. If you get the job you'll here back in a week. hope this helps!
