I worked at Abercrombie & Fitch full-time (more than an year)Pros
The opportunity to advance quickly is the biggest benefit of working here..... provided you are good looking and your DM and RM like you. It was good practice for interviewing and speaking with upper management. As with almost all retail your experience will be all about who your boss is and what they expect out of you. I happened to have great bosses that kept giving me opportunities, but that is not always the case. Wearing comfortable clothes was a small perk. Working with generally cool good looking people is a perk. As a manager you get to pick the people that work for you so with enough time at a store you can basically make of team of really cool people.Cons
There is a lot of pressure that comes along with very poor pay. They say that they pay less because they only promote from within. So expect to make less than your peers at other retailers all the way up the food chain. I would recommend work for A&F to get the title you want, SM for example, then apply to other places that will pay you THOUSANDS more.
As a general rule you want to be at high volume stores to gets visits and noticed by upper management so you can get promoted faster but that means a lot more pressure than low volume stores and a generally stressful experience. I have heard of managers sleeping at their stores before visits...
All of upper management came up through the ranks while the company was doing well and they had over double the model coverage. So when they walk in your store they expect it to look like when they were running stores. Its almost impossible because we have less employees in the store than they did.Advice to ManagementAdvice
