Manager In Training (MIT) Interview

Manager In Training (MIT)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in June 2014.

Interview Details – It is a structured interview that lasts 30-45 minutes, depending on how many questions you have after the formal interview (tip: have a lot of questions and get to know them!). The interviewer will evaluate you on your communication skills and ask you to give examples of how you work with others and handle conflicts. The key is to be outgoing, confident, and well-groomed.

Interview Question – Nothing hard. Just prepare by thinking of many scenarios where you worked in a team.   Answer Question

Manager In Training (MIT) Interview

Manager In Training (MIT)
Cherry Hill, NJ

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in June 2014.

Interview Details – Applied online, then got a call after 1 day for an interview with the DM. Very informal interview, it was done outside the store on the waiting couches in the mall. Interview questions were very open-ended. A friend referred me to the position because he said I would get it because I'm good looking and that's what's mostly they look at anyway at Abercrombie. I ended up not getting the job. Well first of all, I didnt get any call or email and I just know because they never contacted me. I honestly thought they didnt hire me because I wasnt the regular petite skinny size girl, I am short but has curves but not fat or anything.

Model Interview

Model
Manhasset, NY

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in June 2014.

Interview Details – I asked for the code to apply online at my local Abercrombie & Fitch store and I went into the store the next day, a Tuesday, for a short group interview. Most of the interviewees were for Impact, so I had my group interview with just one other girl. She had previously worked at Hollister, so she casually slipped that in, but her face was all caked up and she wore a crop top and shorts. I was all decked out in Abercrombie--a lace tank, burgundy skinny jeans, and brown braided A&F flip flops. The manager showed approval of my attire and my natural, no make-up look. I was hired a week later.

Interview Question – Nothing too difficult. I was asked four questions:
1) How do you provide a positive environment for others?
2) What happened when something didn't go your way?
3) What is diversity to you, and do you think it is important in the workplace?
4) How do you think A&F wants to be viewed?

Good luck to all! :-)
  Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I received a call informing me that I had been selected as a Model, and the manager who interviewed me asked if I was willing to accept the offer for $8/hr (which is roughly minimum wage for NY). I don't think the pay is negotiable.

Floor Model Interview

Floor Model
Orlando, FL

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in June 2014.

Interview Details – Was pretty easy. I walked into the store on a Tuesday and spoke directly to the manager who was nice and walked me through exactly how to apply at one of the little kiosks they have in the store. I applied for a model position and the manager told me to come back on Friday for the group interview.

In total there was 5 of us and the questions were simple: What does diversity mean to you and why is it important in the workplace? Why do you think you'll make a good employee? Why do you wanna work here? stuff like that. I must say, the girl interviewing us seemed a bit ditzy...she didn't really seem interested in us, it almost was like she didn't wanna be there nor care at all. When she was going down the line asking questions she even asked me "Do I have to repeat the question for you or did you hear it?" Whatever. I thought the interview went well, but sadly I was not offered the position. They make it clear that they do NOT want you to call them, they will call you within a week if you got the position and will give you the silent treatment if you didn't.

Interview Question – What do you think makes our company stand out?   Answer Question
