    I have been working at Abercrombie & Fitch part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Depending on the location, there are great people. Work is easy, you have a lot of free time if you do things right the first time. It's a team environment.

    Cons

    Can be slow at times. Pay is low. Depending on the store there could be drama. Hours are given to the best employees and management is always hiring due to recruitment quotas. This takes away hours from what could be a stable team.

    Advice to Management

    Forget Hiring quotas, give hours to the people who work. Hiring new people over and over again and then firing team later just slows things down.

    Pros

    Very easy job that you can do part-time as a high school/underclassman college student. Short shifts make it easy to balance time with school. Very relaxed and friendly coworkers. Good atmosphere compared to other retail jobs. Some basic career opportunities beginning with the "Manager-In-Traning" program. At the completion of the program you are made an assistant manager at a store. You do not need to have this position (or any other other positions with the company) in order to participate in the program. Only requirement is a bachelors degree.

    Cons

    Minimum wage with no pay increase. Dealing with difficult customers as all other retail jobs. Recently the company has been pushing employee to make in-store online sales with no additional commission pay. Upper management requires stores to meet weekly quotas for online sales, which in turn can affects how many hours you are scheduled depending on weather you are good/bad at it. In the end it just depends on your store managers.

    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.

    Fast pace, fast promotion, great discount, comfortable salary, and fun work environment.

    retail hours, the soundtrack always gets stuck in your head, and you always come home smelling of the fierce Cologne.

    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.

    Pros

    Many different career opportunities, thorough training program, many locations, flexible hours, a lot of customer engagement.

    Cons

    Low wages and holiday hours, hard to have a work life balance if you want to be successful, minimal opportunity for bonuses unless very upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Consistency in enforcing policies, fair scheduling, stop expecting minimum wage employees to go above and beyond, thorough training of new employees
