Manager In Training (MIT) Interview

Manager In Training (MIT)

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

Interview Details – One interview with the district manager. You meet with them in the store and go to a mutual meeting place to have the actual interview. It's very laid back, you do not have to dress up. You should wear A&F or Hollister clothing and flip flops, which is basically the dress code if you work there. Do not wear makeup or do anything special with your hair because it's an all natural look if you get the job. They do not allow you to wear any visible makeup.

Interview Question – There really wasn't any hard question. She basically just asked questions about how i would react in certain situations.   Answer Question

Interview Details – Quick interview, basic questions. Not too interested in answers, just a process. I believe they hired purely on appearance. There aren't too many great answers you can say when asked "where do you see yourself in 5 years?" Was interviewed in a mall in a group with people all around me...

Interview Details – Employees seemed very happy working there and the HQ was amazing facility. The interview was a lot more tedious than I expected. I got through the first round and was called back for a second interview but unfortunately did not get an offer. The question ran the gambit form being very challenging to very personal questions about your character.
