    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

    Interview Details

    Met some recruiters at a careers fair at my university and handed them a copy of my CV and was then invited to meet the same recruiter the following day for a brief initial interview as he happened to be in town. There was another informal interview a few weeks later; this involved completing a task and presenting the conclusions. The UK assessment day is held at their London office and consists of team exercises, a short aptitude test on paper and a tour around the store. Brilliant people and experience.

    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.

    Easy interview. Each person interviewing had their own set of questions so they wouldn't outshine others. Easy to talk with everyone and easy questions. After all of the questions were answered we talked about hours. Each giving our own hour input. Then we were all hired on the spot pretty much. She said I want you both to work here so your both hired.

    Manager In Training (MIT) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Then received an email for a formal interview.
    Dress with preferably A&F clothing, but if you do not have anything from the store something similar to A&F would suffice.

    The district manager told me:
    -the interview is really just a process of getting to know me
    -I can relax and because it was a casual interview and open-ended, & I can take my time answering questions.

    The interview questions were all standard questions that A&F provides (scripted), mostly about leadership. I understood that the interview was also supposed to be "casual", but it was not professional. For the most part the district manager was rude/uninterested in answers--yawning a lot, playing with seat & pen, having a chat with colleagues, etc.

    Very superficial environment.

    Store managers were professional. Recruiters were semi-professional. District manager was unprofessional.
