    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    Applied in store, choose a date for a group interview in store, interview is with 4 or 5 other people and 2 managers. Ask you about yourself and your qualities, about the brand, etc. Kind of hard because most people have the same answers. Try to be unique and have different answers. Be honest and laid back. Called a week later to say I got the job.

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    You should go apply in the store, but it helps if you know someone who works for them because then you are like guaranteed a group interview. We had to go into a room and sit on the floor in a circle and they asked you ridiculous questions to see how creative your answers would be. Since you're sitting with about 15 other people, it's hard to have an original answer so try to sit close to the interviewer. Don't think just because you didn't get the job you're unattractive or something

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    A female associate from an Abercrombie & Fitch at a mall called out to me as I walked out of the store and gave me a job application (I guess she fancied my looks for their store.) I applied there and at Universal City Walk. A week after I got a call back from both places scheduling an interview. The mall didn't accept me. Universal City walk did. The interview was a one on one in person interview outside the store. Questions were basic: why do you want to work here? What do you know about the company? Previous experience in retail? With difficult customers?

    Interview Questions
    • -Describe one of your weaknesses.
      -Would you be interested in possibly modeling for the brand?

    Sales Associate (Model) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Manhasset, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    Apply online or in-store and pick your own interview date and time from the selected. Interview is in a group - the manager asks a question in regards to Model candidates and we answer them one by one (good to listen to others so you can get an idea of what to say and what not to say). There is generally around 5 questions, how others describe you, a situation question, if you've ever worked in the company, how you would describe their brand of clothes, etc. Will call back almost immediately (few hours day-1 day) if hired.

    Interview Questions
    • One of the trickiest questions is when they ask the situation question - explain a certain time when you had to --- and how you handled it. You should think on your feet and answer without thinking for too long. Sometimes they ask how you would describe their clothing and it really tests you on how well you know the company.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Straight forward, typical minimum wage retail job. Nothing special, but you were allowed to schedule work based on your availability.
