    Pros

    Abercrombie & fitch provides flexible hours which allow you time to go to school or pursue other goals. A&F also provides a positive and interactive workplace.

    Cons

    I wouldn't have much to say about cons of working for Abercrombie & Fitch other than that they blast loud house music all day and the facility is drowned in dust and fragrance.

  2. It has it's perks and it's downfall, mostly downfalls

    Pros

    Good start on your resume, you learn a lot, become really social, enhance people skills, cashier experience

    Cons

    The managers, the co workers that have worked there believe that are better than others. The pay is horrible for the amount of work you put in.

    Advice to Management

    If you higher the salaries, you wouldn't have to be hiring people year round

    Pros

    The discount is 40% off regular price items only. When we got a new look in we got 50% off the first ten items.
    Management was decently okay, they would let you slid with small things as long as you got your work done. Fun coworkers, no drama, just a chill place to works at

    Cons

    The only time you actually get hours is if your impact. and if you are you'll be scheduled a lot more. Since we are really short staff they would hire anyone. They would never train anyone fully.

    Advice to Management

    Train your staff right, when you hire them. That way things get done right. And hire more staff, that would be great

    Pros

    Decent pay, employee discount at Abercrombie and Hollister, but that's about it as far as the pros go.

    Cons

    Young, inexperienced store management. No specialised security staff; sales associates are expected to field LP at a business with sometimes aggressive shoplifters.

    Advice to Management

    Balance the need for a strong company image with practicality and functionality.
