    I have been working at Abercrombie & Fitch part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Can set your own schedule, most people who work there are cool people, you get to see the clothes before the customers, learning new stuff

    Cons

    It's only part time, favoritism, managers take advantage of people

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring 10 people every week

    I have been working at Abercrombie & Fitch (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great Manager in Training program. Most employees and managers are very upbeat and fun to work around. Very hospitable environment. Good quality product that is easy to stand behind. They work with you and what you'd like to accomplish within the corporation. It is easy to move up within Abercrombie if you work hard and are vocal about where you want to go and what you want to do.

    Cons

    Retail hours are terrible and unpredictable. You're either working 9 am- 6 pm, or 2-11(12), or for an update you can be working from 4 am to 2 pm, or 6 pm-3(4) am. It's difficult to maintain relationships outside of work when you can't make plans more than a few days in advance, or ever have weekends off. If your days off haven't been imputed right by senior management, you will be forced to drive down from wherever you are and make it into work regardless of your location, or face being written up. It is very difficult to take days off. Senior Management can move you from store to store (miles/ states apart) with only a day to a week of warning.

    I have been working at Abercrombie & Fitch part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy job. Just folding clothes, attaching security tags, trying to look busy, and pretty much doing everything the Models do up front. The models have to do impact duties as well. My managers were always cool with working around my school schedule.

    Cons

    This company only pays minimum wage. If you want to be a manager, the only requirement is to have a bachelors degree in anything and to be VERY attractive. They only promote attractive people with bachelors degrees, it's a real thing. Although my managers were cool with working around my school schedule, I would go weeks to months not being scheduled for shifts so I felt like I didn't actually work there. Management is always changing and the environment is not very stable. Every week I would go to work, I would see a completely different set of managers and employees that I've never met. A lot of people quitting or not taking the job seriously.
