    Pros

    Flexible scheduling allows you to set the hours you are available to work. Laid back environment and friendly co-workers.

    Cons

    Inconsistent hours means that you may get a lot of hours one week, and none the next. Repetitive tasks.

    Advice to Management

    Make the hours more consistent for people, do not show favoritism, try to instill friendliness for all managers.

    I worked at Abercrombie & Fitch part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fun environment, flexibility with schedule, great job for working while you are in school. Nice discount on clothing with flexibility on options on what to wear.

    Cons

    During slower seasons hours can be cut drastically, not many raises given despite length of work and work ethic, while not required to wear their clothing, you feel forced to do so.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more rewards to employees to motivate them. Employees that do not do very much often have the same pay rate as those who work much harder than the others.
