    Pros

    It is a very laid back job and you get to work with a lot of cool people and the management is really nice too.

    Cons

    The hours are terrible & there is no real training for new employees you just have to figure everything out as you progress.

    Have proper training give more hours to people who WANT to work.

    Pros

    Easy going environment. Able to schedule hours that fit to your availability. Management is willing to work with you and help you.

    Cons

    The environment can be very gloomy after extended time at work. The lighting is kept pretty low and makes it feel like a cave.

    Advice to Management

    Be willing to help the part-time workers. It can really encourage the people working for you if they see that a manager is willing to help out with closing the store and things like that. Be respectful.

    Pros

    Can set your own schedule, most people who work there are cool people, you get to see the clothes before the customers, learning new stuff

    Cons

    It's only part time, favoritism, managers take advantage of people

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring 10 people every week

    Pros

    Great Manager in Training program. Most employees and managers are very upbeat and fun to work around. Very hospitable environment. Good quality product that is easy to stand behind. They work with you and what you'd like to accomplish within the corporation. It is easy to move up within Abercrombie if you work hard and are vocal about where you want to go and what you want to do.

    Cons

    Retail hours are terrible and unpredictable. You're either working 9 am- 6 pm, or 2-11(12), or for an update you can be working from 4 am to 2 pm, or 6 pm-3(4) am. It's difficult to maintain relationships outside of work when you can't make plans more than a few days in advance, or ever have weekends off. If your days off haven't been imputed right by senior management, you will be forced to drive down from wherever you are and make it into work regardless of your location, or face being written up. It is very difficult to take days off. Senior Management can move you from store to store (miles/ states apart) with only a day to a week of warning.

    Pros

    This was overall a fun place to work at. I was lucky to have great managers and team members that genuinely liked each other

    Cons

    Limited hour availability is an issue at stores with many employees, especially those that return during breaks.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Maybe encourage more versatile looks for different seasons so one doesnt have to spend on different look regularly.
