    Sales Associate (Model) Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

    Interview Details

    You either apple in-store or online. You get to choose the date of your interview. I don't think you get a reminder, so once you pick the date and time, make sure you put it in your calendar or something. The interview is really easy. They always do group interviews but if you're lucky, you might be the only one to sign up for the date and time you chose. They ask about 3 questions that are really easy to answer. Make sure you know about diversity. Also after your interview, do NOT call and follow up. If you don't get a call back within a week, you most likely did not get the job. As for attire, you don't have to dress up in slacks. It would be better if you wore the brand. If you don't know how to look the part, go on the website.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

    Interview Details

    I first talked to recruiters at a campus career fair. I was then invited to a coffee chat with a recruiter, where we just had a casual conversation for about half an hour. Next was an in-person interview and assessment. The next round I was flown out to their headquarters in Columbus, Ohio, where I was shown around for two days. There were interviews throughout the process, including a case and another assessment. The other employees were around for a lot of the process for tours and networking.

    Leadership Development Program Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Columbus, OH
    Anonymous Employee in Columbus, OH
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

    Interview Details

    - 45 min campus interview consisting of a Wonderlic test and standard interview afterwards
    - 30 min skype interview
    - 2 day Super-Day. Tours of Columbus/home office on first day, interviews on second day (4 behavioral, 1 "case")

    General Notes:
    I interviewed for the Leadership Development Program Finance Internship.
    The interviews are straightforward and behavioral. I was able to get through the process by knowing my resume well and having entertaining anecdotes about past experiences that could demonstrate (in different ways) why I would be good for the position.
    There's really nothing you can do to prepare for the "technical" portions of the interviews, besides review of very basic statistics and math.
    All of the people I met from A&F were very good looking, helpful, and passionate about the company.
    I had a very positive interview experience and I recommend that people go into the process with an open mind.

    Interview Questions

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Super laid back and easy questions. It was a group interview with 2-5 people depending. They just ask you questions like, "how would others describe you?" "What is diversity?" Dress like you already work there, or something similar -it's very casual, you'd be wearing flip flops and jeans to work daily. The interview lasted about 30 minutes.
