    Good 1st job

    Model (Sales Associate) (Current Employee)
    Orlando, FL

    ProsDiscount, working with fun coworkers, some managers are really lenient if they like you, easy work.

    ConsHave to buy companies clothes to get hours, they pick specific items you have to wear, not a lot of hours unless you're well liked or work for the company for awhile, staying late often, minimum wage, no room for advancement.

    Worked here for about 8 months

    Sales Associate (Model) (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsEasy job, surrounded by young people my age, mostly college kids and some High School Seniors, made good friends. If you're young with little to no job experience, I'd recommend working here to start off. Didn't require any resume or work experience.

    ConsMinimum wage salary, with basically no chance of a raise. Managers are often terrible, they definitively favor certain employees, the ones the like more. Managers are often young, straight out of college, work environment can get really dramatic and unprofessional for little to no reason. Company is dying so they're implementing a lot of annoying methods to save money, having less people working at a time, etc. This job can be fun, it really depends on how the managers are at the particular store.

    Not for people who actually need money

    Store Model (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsIts a great job if you want to work minimum wage, get some extra cash, yet don't do anything at work.

    ConsThe pay is low, managers are irresponsible and immature

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop acting like angsty teenagers

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    BEST warehouse to work for in Columbus and near areas

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Prosflexible schedule- three days weekends, good for students like me
    Very nice supervisors ( just weekend)
    overtime if you want
    Diverse and tolerant workers ( something i like about A & F ) they gave space for prayers to muslim their workers
    get rewarded for being hard working every once a while
    Discount for A& f clothes

    ConsToo much work during peak season, but you also get big pay check from overtime
    you can lose your job for simple mistake like forgetting your badge
    Weekday supervisors were very rude and less caring for what they do ( last time i worked there)
    You can work for 7 months or more and still not hired but who cares as long as you are getting paid
    No Cafeteria open on sundays except few days during holiday season

    Advice to Senior ManagementI had little interaction with seniors except my supervisor.
    My advice would be to give consideration to students who make large portion of employees. I wouldnt get even one day off during exam finals in december last year ( 2013) .

    Easy, yet tedious, the environment is friendly and it is relatively low stress most of the time.

    Manager In Training (MIT) (Current Employee)
    Indianapolis, IN

    ProsMost of the people you work with are attractive and very friendly, which is somewhat of a prerequisite to be hired. Everyone so far has been really cool and within 2 weeks I made a bunch of friends, so I really enjoy going into work.

    ConsTedious work. Generally the work that needs to be done does not give any sense of reward. Straightening, folding clothes, etc. are very mundane and uninspiring tasks. Can be quite boring at times.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBonuses and goals to strive towards. Currently feels too much like just exchanging time for money.

    Great high school/ college job

    Sales Associate (Model) (Current Employee)
    Northbrook, IL

    Prosdiscount is okay, very flexible hours, nice people, very laid back, easy job, you get to meet a lot of cool people, they work with your schedule.

    Consloud music, you have to wear flip flops, can't have bright nail polish, HORRIBLE pay!

    Advice to Senior Managementyou should have incentives for the employees to strive to be better. There is nothing that motivates. No raises, no promotions, nothing.

    Floor Model at a Hollister/Abercrombie & Fitch outlet.

    Floor Model (Current Employee)
    Ontario, CA

    ProsWorking at an outlet has been an amazing experience for me. It is extremely fast-paced (particularly on the weekends), and requires a larger staff than most full-priced stores. What has made the experience so wonderful me is the team I work with at my store. My managers are young, enthusiastic, and great leaders. It is because of them that the store culture is very positive. I love coming to work every weekend and working with the team. I feel like my work is appreciated and noticed.

    ConsNot too many cons in my experience. I've had a problem with spending almost my entire pay check to buy my AAA's, not complaining. Pay is minimum wage, so don't expect a huge pay check every two weeks-- instead, look for an opportunity to learn about customer service, inventory, shrinkage prevention, etc.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI notice that a lot of these rude comments have something to do with managers who are not providing a positive culture in their stores. Stay attentive to who is managing the stores and maybe figure out a way to better track employee reviews about their managers.. I've had a great experience at the outlet I work at, and a lot is contributed from the great team of managers at my store.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
