    Pros

    All your associates are good looking, fun to be around people. A lot of different backgrounds and things to talk and bond over. You all really become a family

    Cons

    Look policy and store need to be perfect. Many secret shoppers- people disguised as shoppers but really come to make sure your customer service and store is perfect- enter the store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    I working here is like working with all of your best friends. I love my managers and everyone I've met through the company. It makes for a fun and motivating workplace. There are always opportunities to take on extra responsibilities and there is a lot of independent work to show that you're a decent employee. Working with new customers all the time is also rewarding and interesting. Diversity is huge for the company, as well as LGBTQ equality.

    Cons

    At some points, as with any job, it can get a little stressful if a lot is going on. Also sometime you just don't click with a person who you're working with, which can cause communication to become an issue. It can be hard to stay professional in such a fun laid back environment, just remember it's a job, not a social gathering.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I love my managers, but they sometimes forget to update you on important sales or other information you might need to give the customers the best possible experience. Always ask for a 5 minute meeting at the start of your shift! You're manager will appreciate it.

    Pros

    Easy going environment, great method of unconventional networking, a great way to meet new people and make new friends, great employee discounts on A&F apparel, and a relatively flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    Low starting salary for models and impact (level) positions, standing for extended periods of time, sometimes tedious tasks, however these cons do not at all undermine the many pros of working at Abercrombie.
