    I worked at Abercrombie & Fitch

    Pros

    Working with young chill people who share the same interests.
    Easy low stress job
    Laid back atmosphere
    Working for a well know global company

    Cons

    The pay is poor
    Really are not rewarded for working hard

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people more customer oriented and focus less on appearance.
    Even though I got hired based on my look, they should loosen up there standards and hire more qualified people.
    It would reflect in sales

    I have been working at Abercrombie & Fitch full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    You get discounts, i believe at the kids store and adult, since i work at the kids store.
    I get lunch break which is nice because my "ONE" previous job didn't give breaks.
    I get paid vacation days, supposedly health insurance but I need to look into that...

    Cons

    The standards for models have fallen a lot, I like structure and order because my first retail job as a sales associate or "stylist" at Superdry was strict and I took pride in that... The models need to be picked better? I guess.. No raise though :/

  6. I am a floor model. I stand and walk around on the floor making sure no one is stealing, customers are being helped.

    I have been working at Abercrombie & Fitch

    Pros

    Laid back, meet many new people, people are attractive and around the same age, 50% off discount for tripple a's

    Cons

    gets boring, you stand the whole time, you don't get many hours, you never get a raise, you get slaved around by managers, can't have more than 1 earring in each ear and no facial piercings, discounted clothes are still pricey with the discounts

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    it would be nice to get a raise, be allowed to have piercings

    Pros

    Discount
    Not hard work
    Sales associates are friendly
    Laid back environment

    Cons

    Models don't get much responsibility
    The company preaches diversity but it doesn't seem like a priority at work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open to diverse people. Don't just hire people to make your quota.

    Pros

    The people you meet can be long term friends, you can move up at a fast rate. You can wear jeans to work.

    Cons

    You can have a new manager who has worked less years think they know what is best but it is not the best solution. Many of the managers let pride and title get to them and do not treat people right.

    I worked at Abercrombie & Fitch full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I loved the people that I got to meet. Some of the District Managers and Regional Managers had gone to other countries and it was really cool to hear their stories and gain knowledge from them.

    Cons

    The pay is only great if you are just starting out in a career. If you are able to climb to the top in a matter of a couple years then it is great, but getting stuck as an Assistant Manager or a Store Manager isn't very satisfying.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't put so much on the managers and the associates. The job is fun until you realize that you are not getting paid enough to do all of the things they expect you to do on a daily basis. It's all over the place with tasks.
