    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.

    I worked at Abercrombie & Fitch

    Pros

    Overall, it was a very good experience gained and a great way for those who wish to work in fashion to get started.

    Cons

    I did not enjoy the atmosphere of the store, and while I made some wonderful friends, others were not so great.

    Advice to Management

    Tone down the fragrance, push standard back to where it was, turn down the music, and let employees wear more comfortable shoes.

    Pros

    Easy job. Just folding clothes, attaching security tags, trying to look busy, and pretty much doing everything the Models do up front. The models have to do impact duties as well. My managers were always cool with working around my school schedule.

    Cons

    This company only pays minimum wage. If you want to be a manager, the only requirement is to have a bachelors degree in anything and to be VERY attractive. They only promote attractive people with bachelors degrees, it's a real thing. Although my managers were cool with working around my school schedule, I would go weeks to months not being scheduled for shifts so I felt like I didn't actually work there. Management is always changing and the environment is not very stable. Every week I would go to work, I would see a completely different set of managers and employees that I've never met. A lot of people quitting or not taking the job seriously.

    I have been working at Abercrombie & Fitch

    Pros

    It is very chill and becomes a family eventually. The managers are really nice where we work and almost blend in as a young individual working there.

    Cons

    I rarely get enough hours to pay my hour trip to work there. Sometimes Impact will take a BR's shift and that is a little nonsense. Someone from BR (like me) would gladly replace another BR shift. We hire so much people it is almost impossible to get more than 4 hours a week!

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring so much people. Give people more hours, especially people with very little write ups. And work harder to control who subs for who's job.


  11. completely average job

    I worked at Abercrombie & Fitch

    Pros

    The people where very good looking and fun to work with. The work environment was also very laid-back.

    Cons

    The pay is quite frankly terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Hire less workers so the ones that are working get into the job more and make more money.
