    I interviewed in-person. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    Go to any Abercrombie & Fitch, abercrombie, Hollister Co., or Gilly Hicks and ask for a manager. Tell the manager you have a four-year degree and ask them to set up an interview with their district manager (don't leave until you have a confirmed interview time but be gracious and understand they may be busy and you may have to wait a few minutes until they can make that call.) Complete the "casting" card in-store and follow the directions to fill out the online application.

    Come to the interview wearing A&F style clothing (preferably A&F or H.Co. clothes in blue, white, or gray.)

    Have great abs.

    Be persistent if you don't get an answer at first and ask something like: "is there any reason you might be hesitating to make a hiring decision? I may have misspoken or given you an incomplete answer and would love to clear up any questions you may have."

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

    Interview Details

    I was previously a part-time employee with the company and knew my District Manager for many years so the interview was rather informal. It took place in the mall food court as they do for anyone interviewing for a management position. It did take over a month for her to find me an open position in a store since a lot of other part-timers had also graduated and applied at the same time as me.

    Interview Questions

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    There's one interview and it maybe takes 45 minutes. They hire based solely off looks. The pay that they offer seems to not come out to what it should be. The interview is a basic interview, nothing out of the ordinary, and u usually hear back within a week.

    Negotiation Details
    There's no negotiating and don't expect to get much a raise. There are no incentives except once in awhile but I wouldn't really call them that.

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

    Interview Details

    I was recruited by another Assistant Manager who referred me to the District Manager. The DM was quick to get in touch with me and set up an interview for 3 days after the initial conversation. The interview had some insightful questions which I cannot honestly remember, but just be ready to talk about leadership moments in your life and specific instances where you were challenged.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    Initial communication was very fake. The DM who interviewed me cared more about what I looked like than the potential ability I had to run a business. That was fine by me because I am competent but gave insight to those I was working with. Some are incompetent. They ask dumb questions. It is not difficult.

    No negotiations, I needed a job after college.

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was recruited while shopping in a Hollister Co store. I spent several minutes speaking to a manager about myself and my current employment situation. I was invited to a formal interview with the District Manager at a later date. The interview lasted approximately 75 minutes. For the the first 30 minutes we simply had a conversation and got to know each other. The rest of the interview was laid back and conversational as well. I was asked several leading questions about my work experience, education, and social life. The goal was to see if my skills and personality would make for a good fit in the company. I received an offer by email a few days later. I accepted a position and was able to start within 2 weeks.
