    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, OH
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied through career center on campus. First you do a video interview, where you film the answers to simple questions like "name and major" and "where do you see yourself in 5 years". That gets you an on-campus interview, where they'll ask you questions like "why abercrombie?" and why you chose the role you applied for. If you make it past that, you may be asked to a home office visit. They'll fly you into Columbus and take you on tours and to nice dinners, and then the next day you do a group case project and have 3, 45 minute interviews. I had them with higher up people, but many of the people there with me interviewed with lower-level people as well. Called the next with an offer. Overall, everyone is incredibly friendly. It's no secret that it's a tough and selective interview process, but you'll have fun getting to know everyone along the way.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Video screening interview, pretty simple. Prepare that you only get 1 shot to do this interview. Dress and look like an Abercrombie & Fitch employee. They will ask what is your name, major, school and graduation date. Also where you see yourself in a 5 years. There are 2 interviews over Skype, again dress like them. Know your resume, they will ask the basic questions and some behavioral questions. The first interview is with someone from HR. From your first video you send I got a reply from HR within 3 days so they are quick on this step. The second skype interview is from someone from your field. Their HR can be kind of slow so if your waiting 2 weeks do not feel bad they will get back to you. I am waiting for my second interview for skype.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    The process took 3 days, however I was an internal candidate with a high level of experience already working for the company throughout my entire college career and senior year of high school. I was approached by my District Manager and asked if I wanted to interview within the next day or two. It was very casual and easy going. Overall, I would have considered it more of a 30 minute conversation with my DM in which we discussed which direction I would like my career at the company to go and about my education/prior work experience.

    Impact Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online for the kids store and picked an interview date. I arrived 10 mins early and was told to stand in front of the store. Others started to arrive shortly as it's always a group interview. They made us wait like 20 mins... for no reason! Then after waiting we were told some other manager would interview us. (more waiting!) When she finally came she was very unprepared. She split us and into two groups, impact and models. When I got around to being interviewed she didn't even look up from the sheet of paper she was scribbling on, so I knew I was wasting my time.

    Impact Team Member Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wellington, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I went to the mall website since I knew for a fact the mall would be hiring somewhere so I applied to ANF. Didn't take long at all, just pretty much the usual: availability, education, then at the end they let you pick a time to come in for a GROUP interview. I hate those stupid group interviews, I feel it's disrespectful, like they can't find a measly 10 minutes to sit down and get to know someone fairly on their own. Well it was a total of 4 people in the group. The assistant manager (who was a freaking kid) interviewed all of us reading off of a paper, jotting down little notes acting like he was listening. It's dumb because if someone says the same thing you were going to say to the question then you have to change your answer on the spot otherwise you look like you can't think for yourself, which is stupid. Long story short, he called me the next day & said I got the job. Been a joke ever since, they never even schedule you! Do not. I repeat DO NOT ever apply to this stupid place. Also they always ask "What is diversity?"... like always. So have a legit answer. But don't apply please.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I went to the store in Santa Monica and asked if they were hiring and then was told to apply online. I filled out the application and then set up a date for an interview and a couple days later I had got a call and was told to come in for a sooner date. The interview was easy since I had came onto this website and knew most of what they were going to ask. It was a group interview so that made it a little more easier for me. The whole thing was laid back but make sure you can make yourself stand out.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted my a fellow MIT on a thursday night through FB asking if I was interested in the position. Told her I was, met her the next day in the ANF store along with the manager and the interview was set up for the following thursday with the divisions manager. The DM was super friendly and welcoming, she talked about her past experiences and how the company has changed and how great it was. We talked for an hour. It was very relaxed and she asked me maybe 4 questions out of a paper. Because, i was the last interview of the week, she told me she would let me know the next day. She did and I was offered the position through e-mail. The entire process took one week.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    It first off starts by making you present yourself (name, hobbies, something cool about you)
    It then goes on to you past experience in life as resolving a conflict or something you did wrong and how you fixed it.
    Then they ask you what is diversity.
    Most likely it'll be a group interview

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

    Interview Details

    The process was two interviews. Very easy and straight forward. They aren't tricky about the questions and interviewers are pretty laid back. It is also very casual, wearing jeans and casual top is completely acceptable- you will feel awkward if you are more dressed up. Pretty easy job to get.
