Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch (Cherry Hill, NJ) in June 2015.

Interview

I applied online and chose a date to come in for a group interview. Apparently since I showed up early and was the only one that showed up so far that day, one of the guys working there interviewed me in the store and couldn't take me outside since there were no managers in the store. While the guy got the paper work for the interview I started talking to the other people that worked there and she was really sweet and friendly. You just want to seem like you can get along with all types of people.
Also the interview consisted of like three questions and he offered me the job right away. I asked him that I might be going away in the fall for college and if I could transfer to a store there and he said yeah they would transfer you if you want to continue working.

    Interview

    Easy interview right in store. Grouped session. Expected to hire a lot of people due to turnover. Met with manager and assistant manager. We received a tour of the store, nothing in the back. All front store areas that customers are already familiar with. Fun people. Met new friends at interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch (Indianapolis, IN) in April 2010.

    Interview

    The interview for a job here is very simple and not really based on your ability but rather your appearance. They will ask you maybe four or five questions that the corporate requires them to ask during interviews. If the manager interviewing you is interested in you, you will likely be able to tell by the way the describe the job to you. They will also probably ask you some extra questions that are not on their interview questionnaire form.

    The main questions that they will ask you that are required to be asked by corporate (at least that is the way it was when I did my interview in 2010) are:

    1.) Describe yourself using three words.
    2.) How would you describe our brand of clothing?
    3.) What is diversity?
    4.) Why is diversity in the workplace important?
    5.) Why do you believe that we should hire you?

    Those are the basic questions that I remember them asking me. They also asked a couple of questions such as: Where do you go to school? What are you studying? Outside of work and school what do you enjoy doing? Have you had any previous jobs in the past? If so, what did you do at those jobs?

    Interview Questions

    • What is diversity and why is it important in the workplace?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    They called 3 days after the interview. They asked me to come in and fill out some paperwork. As this is an entry level job there were no negotiations.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch (Milford, CT) in August 2009.

    Interview

    Applied on a kiosk in the store, then was contacted a couple days later to come in for an interview. Interview is group style, but in my case there was only one other prospective employee. The Store Manager gave us the interview in the food court of the mall. We were each asked the same amount of different questions. It's a good idea to know Abercrombie's history as an outdoor goods store, and their traditional image of "prep", although that has changed over the years, exclusivity is at the core of their company culture. I would also wear their clothing to the interview. After the interview I was called shortly after and asked if I wanted the position. I said yes and was given a first shift which included some training before hand (a video on loss prevention).

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, A&F pays minimum wage to anyone below management.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch (Sterling, VA) in August 2009.

    Interview

    I came into the store as a customer and was offered a position, but declined it. I came back a couple of months later and told them that I had been asked at least twice before to work for A&F. They told me to fill out an application on one of their computers (easy). I was accepted for the job on the spot. It helps to wear their clothes and fit their image. You will quickly learn that the models are narcissistic; the turnover rate is high; you'll have a new manager every month because they don't stay long; pay is awful. My advice, if you want the discount, work 5 hours every 2 weeks or whatever their minimum is.

    Interview Questions

    • No questions were asked; it is pretty much based on how you look.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. Pay is pretty much minimum wage, but you do get 30% off non-clearance items and occasional 50% off on certain articles of clothing quarterly/seasonally.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch (New York, NY) in May 2009.

    Interview

    I was actually recruited in the store and participated in a group interview the same day. The group interview consisted of 10 people including myself by the store manager. The vibe was very laid-back as it took place outside. Questions included: What was your experience in customer service? What are your extracurricular activities? How would you handle a difficult customer? What does diversity mean to you?

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch (Greenville, SC) in February 2007.

    Interview

    I was recruited when I was in the mall by one of the current associates. I think they mostly only hire people who they recruit themselves instead of just walk-in applications. I was called for an interview the next day. I expected a 1 on 1 interview because that's how most companies handle their employee searches, but I didn't know that A&F has like 100 employees in their stores, so they do group interviews. They ask you to say the current tagline (phrase you have to say to anyone who walks in the door, no matter if they are 8 or 80), and I also think they assess you on how you are currently dressed, so I would try to wear something from A&F that is more of a recent season. They also ask how you or your closest friends would describe you ... I don't know what they were looking for but I said intelligent, talented, vivacious, ambitious, and dedicated. I don't really think they care much about what you say, as long as you look good. That's pretty much it.
