    Loved working here!

    Brand Representative (Former Employee)
    Champaign, IL

    ProsI had a wonderful experience here. I started at Abercrombie kids when I was 17 and when the store was shut down, moved over to Abercrombie. It was mindless work with a great atmosphere and amazing people to work with. I liked the fact that the managers weren't much older than I was as they were easy to get along with but still very efficient at their job. I worked here for 5 years and after going off to college I loved having the ability to still work when I came home on breaks and
    summer.

    ConsI honestly don't have any cons! I loved working on the floor, register and assisting in floor designs. My only con is any position in retail where you're constantly refolding clothes, but you should know what you're getting in to!

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe Champaign store has closed, and its been 6 years since I've left, but I had a fantastic experience here!

    In-Store Model (Former Employee)

    ProsFun people
    Easy job

    Floor model easiest, best job ever for any 16 y/o

    Floor Model (Former Employee)
    Lake Grove, NY

    ProsI worked there until my first year of college as a floor model, the pay wasn't that good, but it was fun, easy, and scheduling worked around my life

    ConsBad pay, you'll make minimum wage the majority of the time you work there, even when you get promoted your pay only goes up a few cents, and you have to buy a bunch of different clothes from there each season, you get 30% off and most high school kids are spending their money on clothes anyway, but if you're over 18 and have real responsibilities, this isn't a job you want.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
