    I worked at Abercrombie & Fitch

    Pros

    I learned a lot about working with others. it was an easy job thru college and i got to select my own hours.

    Cons

    Clique-y, dark/smelly work environment, all about appearance. Corporate was more concerned with pubic appearance than with giving customers good service. Constantly worked over my 8 hour limit and management was forced to work thru lunches and after they clocked off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to be paid a real wage (college grads were being paid a low salary ~$12/hr) and they were forced to work after they had already clocked out.
