I applied through an employee referral and interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

Interview Details – I was asked to come in for a group interview. Their were many questions about leadership, handling difficult tasks, and diversity. We talked about our strengths and how they can benefit the brand positively. After the interview I was told I was hired and that I would come in for paperwork and availability requests. I didn't start working until after my background check was completed which took about 2 weeks

Interview Question – There were not really difficult questions. But be prepared to have scenarios in mind of leadership roles, team task, and difficult situations. They want to know how you solve the problems   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiation

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

Interview Details – Luckily I had a friend refer me to the manager, so I had an advantage when applying. The group interviews (yes, it is a group interview, unless you're the only one who applied at that time) are on Tuesdays and Fridays at 4:00pm. The interview is extremely casual; the manager will take you outside of the store and ask you simple interview questions. My interview was fairly short (about 10-15 minutes), as I was the only person interviewing. The interview is easy, just search some questions online and have a general idea of what you'll be saying, and you'll have no problems (note: the "diversity" question is almost ALWAYS asked). After the interview the manager told me she'd contact me within the week to tell me if I got the job. Came Tuesday (exactly 1 week later) and having not gotten a call yet I was sure I wasn't going to be hired...until the evening rolled around and sure enough I had received the call to be informed that I was hired! Don't be discouraged if a couple days, and even a week goes by and you haven't heard back. Managers are busy handling other things, and hiring new employees isn't exactly one of their highest priorities on their to-do-list.

Interview Question – Describe a situation when you had to work...
a) efficiently under a time limit
b) cooperate and work as a team with others

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in October 2009.

Interview Details – The interview is pretty laid back. There is really not too much pressure. The managers pick random people and ask questions about job experience, times when you had to do a little extra at work, etc. It's actually a fun interview as long as your willing to answer the questions and have fun with a big smile on your face.

Interview Question – Describe a time when you had to work with a group of one or more   Answer Question
