Model/Sales Associate Interview

Model/Sales Associate
Bakersfield, CA

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in June 2013.

Interview Details – I walked in to apply with my resume, the manager told me that I can apply through the computer at the store. While I was working on my application (which took forever cause the computer was not in its best shape), the main manager approached me and offered that she can interview me right away. After my application, i got interviewed and hired on the spot.

Interview Question – the main question was about diversity and what does it mean to you   Answer Question

Interview Details – The whole interview and hiring process at Abercrombie is awful!! Job candidates never know whether is actually an opening for the position when they come to the interview. Most often the interviews aren't even conducted by a manager.

Sales Associate (Model)
San Francisco, CA

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed 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.

Interview Question – What is one experience that has greatly changed or influenced your life?   Answer Question

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in April 2013.

Interview Details – I walked into their store with a couple friends and they handed us cards with application info on them when we were leaving. Filled out the application online, selected one of their interview slots, but I called them and had it changed to a time that was convenient for me. The manager took me to a couch outside the store. The interview was short, three questions. I was the only one there even though it should be a group interview. After, they told me about the look policy. In a week they called me with an offer.

Interview Question – What is diversity?   View Answer

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

Interview Details – We were sat around a table in the mall. The manager asked us some cut and dry questions from a sheet like How are you working in a team? What type of experience have you had? She also explains what the company policies and beliefs are, such as dress code and diversity in the workplace. Very simple, very easy.

Interview Question – What was the most difficult task you had to achieve as a team member? And how did you succeed?   Answer Question

Model/Sales Associate Interview

Model/Sales Associate
Austin, TX

I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in October 2009.

Interview Details – The Interview process is always a group interview they usually have on Friday afternoons. Be sure to try to wear the Brand. Its OK to wear jeans just as long as its there newest jeans that they are selling. If you're female make sure not to wear a lot of make up. Have a natural look about you. Do not wear eyeshadow, mascara, eyeliner, and have a natural hair color/style. Its OK to wear shorts if you're a girl but be sure that you are covered with no cleavage With guys make sure to wear an undershirt. Guys should not have any facial hair or any revealing tattoos and make sure your hair is groomed and neat. It is a very shallow process and they will never admit it but it is how you look. I have heard management ask on more than one occasion if the person was "cute" or "good-looking". Just go to the website and try to mimic how the models are wearing the clothes.

Interview Question – They do not give hard questions. Its mostly how you answer them. Just make sure to be confident when you answer.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There are not negotiations as far as pay. It is usually always minimum wage.
