    I worked at Abercrombie & Fitch part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -flexible schedule -good team of young people -low stress

    Cons

    -drama -managers play favorites -no nail polish and look policy was increasingly strict

    Advice to Management

    -don't play favorites with associates! You're all a similar age range so try to treat everyone fairly.


  6. Senior Technical Designer

    I have been working at Abercrombie & Fitch full-time

    Pros

    Nice people, beautiful work environment, good pay, good benefits, nice gym, good food at cafe, discount at the store is a plus.

    Cons

    Talents of some are overlooked, there is a huge leadership change going on in the organization, so growing pains are a current challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on giving clear direction and making decisions that will lead the company into profitability. Think outside the box and focus the future on new ideas--not just fixing the old ones.

    I have been working at Abercrombie & Fitch full-time

    Pros

    Good pay, fun community of people. They allow time to volunteer without needing to take vacation days. You can work your way up the company quickly

    Cons

    The hours are really long and it can be exhausting. There is a work hard/play hard mentality so sometimes the company seems too small because you are hanging out with and working with the same people all the time

    Advice to Management

    Give employees better work/life balance and continue to offer the same benefits and perks to employees even though the company is not doing the best right now. Open an office on the west coast because Columbus, Ohio is not a desirable place to live

    I worked at Abercrombie & Fitch part-time

    Pros

    -Highly flexible hours allow you to adjust your availability to suit your schedule -Good starting pay -Managers are genuinely concerned about the associates -Great work environment created by other associates -Job related skills training doesn't take an extended period and learning on the job is possible

    Cons

    -Associates are often expected to go above and beyond their job responsibilities -Training usually only covers basic job responsibilities; training for additional expectations are not comprehensive or cannot be adequately/immediately provided -Very limited/slow promotional options -Expectations can often times become overwhelming

    Advice to Management

    Local management does an amazing job of looking out for their associates; they are genuinely concerned about the well-being of their associates and will do what they can to streamline the associates' tasks. There seems to be a disconnect between company wide management divisions and local management teams.
