    Managernin Training Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Met at Chicago's Water Tower to bring my résumé in person, she saw me to be a great fit was brought in the following week to meet with the current DM. I expressed that this was my 4th interview due to their quick turn around of DM's I would have to begin my application process all over. The interview was casual laid back came very natural to me, he was very pleased with my recent contributions, and as a professional and invited me to interview at Fox Valley location because MIT's we're need there. Again interviewed with that Store Manager was very conversational than question and answer, he too said I'd be a great candidate, but he had to contact his DM (a different person). He told me in person that he'd love to have me on my team just had to contact his boss. Due to being a recent Assistant Manager I understand similar workload that's expected so I waited the following week to follow up with him. I never received a call back. Due to it being my 4th attempt with A&F, being highly qualified and fitting to the company's culture I just came to the conclusion that it's not meant for me to be an employee within this particular company no matter how impressed they were. An old Collegue and friend of mine is currently a store manager in Indiana and I told her about my many attempts and she was shocked so she offered a friend of hers in a north Chicagoland store to interview me as well, after I told her Tom said I was a great fit. Obviously I wasn't good enough to be called back. :-/ so I moved forward with other opportunities. Didn't receive a letter in the mail as I did in the past that they've decided to pursue other applicants either. In the past when the person I interviewed with left the company or was promoted I'd have to begin the process all over. I was certain that I was in especially after not receiving their infamous rejection letter. This was April 2015 it is now August 2015.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch (Las Vegas, NV).

    Interview

    It was a group interview, and i was there with about three other applicants. try to answer the questions first because the questions are kind of simple so everyone ends up saying the same thing. Pretty much just dress nice and smile a lot and youll probably be hired. It's a really boring job though probably so i ended up not accepting the offer, how is this not 50 words yet? wtf seriously? maybe if i keep posting it will finally

    I applied online. I interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

    Interview

    I applied online after speaking with the manager in the store, and scheduled an interview the next week. The interview took place at a lounge area right outside the store, there were about 4 questions asking about the company and your personality. The interview lasted no more than 15 minutes. The important thing is to be confident, show that you have an outgoing personality, and dress in A&F clothing. I was hired on the spot at the end of the interview.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch (Erie, PA).

    Interview

    It was a group interview in the food court or in the store depending on how busy it was. It was a very relaxed interview. Just to see if you are socially "normal". Don't need to wear all Abercrombie or Hollister clothes. If you are good looking they will be able to tell, not that it really matters. Trying to hard and dressing up doesn't help.
