    Associate Merchant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, OH
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 8 weeks - interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    Met/applied at a job fair.

    Multi-Step interview process:
    1) Phone screen
    2) Skype Interview
    3) Onsite Interview

    The phone screen was very basic - how did you hear about us, what is your interest, how does this sound, etc.

    Skype interview was more specific to the role - how do these aspects of the work seem etc.

    Onsite interview as multiple parts
    1 on1 interviews about personal experience and background
    group activities where you pick a lineup of clothes (apparently they only want you to say Blue and White all the time)
    Record videos of yourself responding to interview questions (pretty weird - they put each person in a room and had you answer questions to a web cam to record it).

    Everyone was super pleasant/nice. Very upbeat group of people. Expect bass-heavy music and everything to smell like an Abercrombie store.

    • Which of these (pointing at assorted abercrombie products) should we include in the summer lineup?   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. 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.
