Overnight Associate Interview

Overnight Associate

I applied in-person and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

Interview Details – It may have changed in the few years I've been there, but, it's normally a group interview for those who want to be overnight, brand rep, impact, etc (nothing management). Two managers ask basic questions about why you want to work there or what attributes you can bring to the company. Sometimes they ask you what you consider "A&F style".

I applied online and interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

Interview Details – The interview was a group interview, there were four people in my interview including me. The manager took us to a stockroom. She asked four questions; one at a time and went around and wrote down each of our responses. Most questions were about diversity, describe a time when... type of questions. It was an easy interview, all I can say is be honest and just be yourself. Four days later I was hired.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in June 2011.

Interview Details – After waiting what seemed like 20 minutes in the actual abercrombie store (with all the customers shopping), all of the interviewees were split up into groups of 6-8 and we were taken to the food court to have a group interview. It was a relaxed interview mixing people who wanted to be floor models, impactors and overnighters. Once the manager conducting the interview had us introduce ourselves and what position we were applying for she went around in a circle and asked us a series of questions coordinating to our job. After the interview was finished we were told to wait about a week to a week and a half and they would call us if we got the job. Personally I got my call at the latter end of the time frame.

Negotiation Details – no negotiating went on it was more like we can offer you $9.70 if you would like to start let us know when.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in June 2011.

Interview Details – There is only one interview process and that is the group interview. You, along with others applying for different positions, are interviewed in an open space setting. They ask you each a question (going from left to right or by positions). In total, about 4 or 5 questions are asked. It's pretty easy if you know what the company stands and what they're looking for. Some people don't like group interviews because it seems unprofessional but that's what working for the company will be like. Remember, most of them are 17 to 22 with a goal of just earning money. Don't expect suit and tie professional work setting.

Interview Question – - Define diversity.
- How would you manage to work without supervision.
  Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Easy and didn't take too long.

New York, NY

The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in May 2010.

Interview Details – I applied online and picked my interview date and time. I went 15 minutes early and was told they weren't interviewing for overnight positions that day. (I was pissed). But whatever, she took my name and number and told me to come back 2 weeks later at 7PM (I was confused as to why the interview was so late). Any way I went back that evening 15 minutes early... The interview started 10 minutes later than it was supposed to, and about 11 people including myself were asked 3 questions. 1) Can you describe a time when you found it difficult to work with or stay positive with a classmate or co-worker? 2) What does diversity mean to you? 3) Can you describe a time when you want above and beyond what was expected of you in school or the work place? That's about it in addition to introducing yourself. I thought I did well, but was NEVER called back. Keep in mind that when you pick your date online, they'll tell you to come back, I don't know what's up with that.

I applied online - interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in July 2012.

Interview Details – Filled in the online application on A&F’s official website. Be sure to prepare your resume before hand so you can have enough time in filling in (the system automatically logs you out after 45 minutes and you’ll have to re-log in and retype everything!). No punctuation is required for your address or else you will be really frustrated as it is the first page of log in!
You will be entering your suggested date of interview at the end of the application. I got the call the afternoon before the date of interview. The telephone operator spoke quickly so be sure to take notes and confirm the address of interview.
The interview lasted about 45 minutes. In my session, there were about 10 candidates including me. Be sure to arrive about 10 minutes before the scheduled time. The questions included self-introduction and 4 questions. My perception is that the manager wants to hear fun facts and humorous experience of candidates, so one does not need to quote from his/her work experience but instead, daily life encounters intrigue the interviewer more. It seems a fun-loving, easygoing personality is preferred. As the entire interview process is conducted in English, be sure to understand what the interviewer asks and give a precise, 3-4 sentence concise answer.
My perception towards the company is that the members should be having fun at work, while delivering their performance accurately and on time. They should also be energetic, possibly enjoy sports and group activities. The office is simply designed with American pop music playing. Probably looking for people who are young (at heart!), fit, healthy, loves the nature and the beach.

Interview Question – Tell me one experience of you that you performed above and beyond expectation.   View Answer
