    I worked at Abercrombie & Fitch

    Pros

    The people are so friendly and atmosphere is wonderful. Customers were not preppy targeted market it was 90% 40 year old minorties and resellers and 10% british tourists. However I loved my job and I loved my friends there. I felt important and enjoyed floor sets.

    Cons

    Low pay and not a lot of hours

    Pros

    The best part of working for A&F is working with your team. You truly become a family and develop a support system within the store, district, and even the region. There are so many resources and so many opportunities to grow. You get so much practical experience in the world of business and you can truly excel. You can go from being in-store, to home office, to opening stores internationally, etc. Definitely a great place to launch your career, and if you work hard, stay for years and years to come.

    Cons

    Holiday season is tough, but it's retail so that's expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always remember the culture of we mindset.

    Pros

    Incredibly fun job with great coworkers. One of my all-time favorite jobs.

    Cons

    All of the money I made went back into buying the outfits I had to get, if I had been better payed it would have made sense, but I was getting minimum.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For the prices of their goods, I think Abercrombie can afford to pay more than the $7 an hour I was getting.

    Pros

    Meet great people and learn the basics of retail

    Cons

    Pay is less than competitive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treating your employees like they are disposable only reinforces that they don't need to stay

    I worked at Abercrombie & Fitch

    Pros

    I learned a lot about working with others. it was an easy job thru college and i got to select my own hours.

    Cons

    Clique-y, dark/smelly work environment, all about appearance. Corporate was more concerned with pubic appearance than with giving customers good service. Constantly worked over my 8 hour limit and management was forced to work thru lunches and after they clocked off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to be paid a real wage (college grads were being paid a low salary ~$12/hr) and they were forced to work after they had already clocked out.
