    My interview was very simple and short. Two managers interview me and another girl. They told us a little about themselves and we did as well to get to know each other more and make us feel comfortable. The managers asked a total of 4 questions during my interview. I will know within the next week if I got the job or not.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch (Pleasanton, CA).

    Interview

    I was interviewed inside the mall in a public place with one other person. An assistant manager and a manager interviewed us. It was casual and fun because they were relaxed and friendly. The person I was interviewed with had a similar personality to mine so we built off each other's answers and supported each other. We both got the job.

    Model/Brand Representative Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch (Cherry Hill, NJ) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and chose a date to come in for a group interview. Apparently since I showed up early and was the only one that showed up so far that day, one of the guys working there interviewed me in the store and couldn't take me outside since there were no managers in the store. While the guy got the paper work for the interview I started talking to the other people that worked there and she was really sweet and friendly. You just want to seem like you can get along with all types of people. Also the interview consisted of like three questions and he offered me the job right away. I asked him that I might be going away in the fall for college and if I could transfer to a store there and he said yeah they would transfer you if you want to continue working.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in June 2015.

    Interview

    Interview went for about an hour, the District manager told me about the MIT program and all the benefits of being apart of their program. She asked me simple questions to get to know me. I thought my interview went well, and 2 weeks later I get a rejection email that looked generic...does not make the company look good and I will NEVER apply for them again.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in June 2015.

    Interview

    Received phone call approximately 4 weeks after submitting online application. Was invited to meet the store manager. Advised to wear Abercrombie clothing. Upon arrival at the store I was greeted by the store manager, who kindle explained the MIT role. I was not asked any questions during the 10 minute conversation. After the store manager had explained the role, she invited me to meet with the District Manager a week later. Again, advised to wear Abercrombie clothes. Met with the DM, we sat outside the store for the interview, which lasted an hour. The DM was very pleasant but spent a significant amount of talking about their own personal experiences with Abercrombie and before Abercrombie. This was a great insight but they rambled on for far too long, I was rapidly losing interest. Overall, the time spent actually being interviewed was no more than 30 minutes.
