Cashier/Model Interview (Neutral Experience)
I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.
Interview Details – They take five minutes out of their day to ask you "what are your strengths" and hope that you don't sound like a complete idiot. If you don't look good they won't hire you. Seriously.

Cashier/Model Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
The process took a day - interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in July 2009.
Interview Details – I went in and filled out the application in the store on their computer. They give you different dates to choose from when you would like to come back for an interview, which is pretty cool. I went in for the interview and I kept asking the employees where I should go to wait for the interview and none of them gave me the time of day. The group interview process was kind of weird considering they ask you questions and take notes on everything your saying, which can be tedious if there are lots of people in your group (there were 8 people in mine not including myself). It felt kind of rushed since they had so many of us but I felt like they didn't give people a chance to say anything about themselves and went based on looks, not on the content of what was said.
- What does diversity mean to you? Answer Question
- How would your friends, family, coworkers describe you and give an example of how you exemplify this. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – I found out during the interview it was for 1-2 shifts a week and 1 call in. Not worth the drive.
Very Easy Interview
Cashier/Model Interview (Positive Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in April 2011.
Interview Details – Generally, models/cashiers are 'scouted' by A&F employees, based on whether or not you have 'the look'. Once you get your calling card, you will be asked to come in for a group interview. The process begins with registration at a touchscreen computer system. You must give your basic information and also your availability (which will become more and more flexible the longer you work there, and the better you get to know everyone). Generally, everyone is super friendly, despite the fact that it's quite daunting to walk into a building where the majority of people are above-averagely attractive, and you yourself will be based on your charm and looks. However, it is a relaxed atmosphere, and the interviewer does make the process almost like a camp introduction day. Everyone sits in a circle (potential impacts, models, cashiers, etc. are all interviewed together and are then sorted into their various positions after the interview) and begins by introducing themselves in a few short sentences. You will be asked how you would deal with customers in certain situations, examples of how/why your personality is right for A&F, and you will have to give examples from your own personal life. For example, how have you asserted yourself in a certain situation, or how well do you integrate into new environments. There is a short break and the process then resumes. All in all (depending on the number of people), the process doesn't take more than 1-2 hours. At the end, your headshot is snapped.
If you get the job, you will be called in for a training day, which takes up about half a working day (there is an hour break). Along with the other newbies, you will watch videos about the brand, its policies (eg. on theft), customer interaction, store allocation, etc.. etc. Very basic and again, everyone is very nice. You'll also get your employee cards at this point, as well as your respective uniform (depending on your job) and a store tour as well as a practice round at whatever it is you have been assigned (e.g. cashiers practice at a till). You must learn how to interact with customers, use the walkie-talkie, how to handle returns, and the like.

Cashier/Model Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in October 2009.
Interview Details – I was scouted outside an A&F store and given a web address to apply for the position. After completing an online application, I was contacted a few weeks later for an in-person group interview with maybe 10 people total and 2 managers interviewing us. Most of the questions are about how you work on a team. They contacted me a week or so later to ask if I'd accept the position.
