    Pros

    All your associates are good looking, fun to be around people. A lot of different backgrounds and things to talk and bond over. You all really become a family

    Cons

    Look policy and store need to be perfect. Many secret shoppers- people disguised as shoppers but really come to make sure your customer service and store is perfect- enter the store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.

    I worked at Abercrombie & Fitch

    Pros

    An easy job. Nothing was hard, there were lots of rules but they were all comprehensive. The scheduling was clear. Not a career oriented job, but it was good for a summer during college.

    Cons

    The scheduling was annoying, as management never allocated enough hours to individuals. This was annoying as you are often pressured into using one of your 50%s to purchase new merchandise. It felt more like a sales ploy than a job considering the lack of motivation in the sales team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider motivating employees to promote customer satisfaction and reach sales goals. Also running a leaner team (less people working more hours) would develop your sales team professionally and create a better more driven mentality.
