    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

    Interview Details

    I was about to graduate college and had been recruited by a friend. I agreed to an interview, it was all set up through texting my friend who was a store manager at the time. I was scheduled to meet with the District Manager and was told to wear casual clothes similar to what A&F sells (do not go to an interview for this company in business attire). I wore minimal makeup but the DM commented on my makeup when we were talking about the look policy during the interview. The interview was pretty casual, we sat on a bench in the middle of the mall and was about 30 minutes.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

    Interview Details

    I had heard about the MIT program from my school's website so I went in store and applied. The store manager was there and she was very friendly and assisted me with the application. Since I had not yet graduated she informed me to come back when I graduated, and the process will start.

    I came back 28 days later, after my graduation, informed her that I had graduated and she told me that her District Manager (DM) would be in Tuesday and too come back then (It was Saturday when I went in). Following her orders, I came back 10 minutes before the scheduled time, only to find that the DM was busy, but could meet with me Tomorrow. So I came back the next day, dressed well and formal casual, only to find that the DM was not there, and too come back again Saturday. I go back again on Saturday and finally had time to get an interview.

    The interview was very laid back, asking basic questions like; Leadership examples, Problems with Co-Workers, how did you handle deadlines, etc. The interview went very well, I felt as if I had "Aced" it. The DM told me that I would get a call on Monday about the next step. Currently, it is Tuesday evening and still no response.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

    Interview Details

    Have a rough idea of what makes you a good candidate to work in the store. If you were recruited by an employee, you basically have to string together a few coherent sentences. It's a very easy interview, three questions. Just be confident. It's not a good idea to end your answers with a question mark. Be sure of what you're saying and have conviction. If you're good with common sense, you'll be fine.

    Manager In Training Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

    Interview Details

    Straight forward interview (scripted) dealing with background and past job experiences. Primarily examples of when I was in a leadership or management position in the past and how well I performed. Attire was casual...pretty much anything from the store, I was told to wear jeans and a t-shirt with converse if I had them. The interview was with the district manager, I had expected to work at a more convenient location than I was assigned and somewhat misled. I was fully expecting to work in the location that I was recruited, where the application was submitted, and where the interview took place. When I was offered the position, I requested a day to think it over, and the next day I accepted....only to find out they expected me to work in a location about 20 minutes farther away.

    Negotiation Details
    Not much room to negotiate. I was offered a salary of $31,000.00/yr but in reality it was only $14.90/hr (relatively easy to get a few hours of over time though). I highly recommend requesting a written offer with the salary and benefits completely written out and documented before signing any contract.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

    Interview Details

    My first interview was on campus and fairly simple. It was mostly just a nice talk with The represetative. My second interview was over Skype and it was really fun and engaging. I really enjoyed talking with the interviewers. Very relaxed. It took about 4 weeks to hear back after my second interview possibly because the holiday followed by interviews.
