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

    Pros

    The staff was incredible. Going to work every day was like hanging out with a bunch of new friends. The management team was always excellent, routines were expected and upheld. Very professional company.

    Cons

    They're trying to get away from it now, but their whole sizeist, "we're not for everyone," would-rather-burn-damaged-clothing-than-donate-to-charity. Pretty evil.

    Advice to Management

    You seem to be doing a good job of being more inclusive, but your diversity plan needs to be stepped way up.

    I have been working at Abercrombie & Fitch full-time

    Pros

    Nice people, beautiful work environment, good pay, good benefits, nice gym, good food at cafe, discount at the store is a plus.

    Cons

    Talents of some are overlooked, there is a huge leadership change going on in the organization, so growing pains are a current challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on giving clear direction and making decisions that will lead the company into profitability. Think outside the box and focus the future on new ideas--not just fixing the old ones.

    Pros

    Very laid back, fun. Fold clothes, talk, look nice at work, not difficult

    Cons

    Minimum wage, inconsistent hours, drama if you let people be negative around you

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring only recent college grads for managers. Many who choose to work at a clothing store aren't the most mature and set an immature culture. Get more versatility in management.
