    Pros

    depending on the traffic of your store and management you will likely be getting paid for sitting around and talking with your co workers, laid back vibe depending, decent music, okay discount happens seasonally of 50%, easy to learn

    Cons

    they don't promote until you've completed a 4 yr degree which my managers degrees had nothing to do with management so the rule doesn't make a whole lot of sense, no raises, a solid amount of drama so don't run your mouth too much, understand you are working for prejudice people they love talking about diversity but they don't like to hire larger people still and I know that first hand from a DM

    Advice to Management

    a little more professional, offer raises for people who make extra effort

    Pros

    Discount, friends, Black Friday!!, smiles

    Cons

    Managers pick favorites giving them upwards of 40 hours and others none. Managers gossip about teenage employees with other employees

    Advice to Management

    Stop acting like high school students you're 25

    Pros

    Co-workers and managers are really cool. They work with ur schedule. You have a lot of co-workers incase u need someone to cover for u.

    Cons

    Minimum wage, little bit of hours, clothes can be expensive even with discount (since you are kind of expected to use their clothes). Repetitive boring work if u work in the stock room.

    Advice to Management

    Management is actually really good, but the company should consider less workers in order to give more hours so that people won't be quitting all the time.

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, surrounded by good-looking and social people (for the most part), relaxed environment, not too demanding on the sales floor

    Cons

    Low hours at times, high-turnover with associates and managers (had 3 different managers in 4 months), virtually no training or laid out expectations, lots of times you just stand around

    Advice to Management

    Address the high-turnover rates. Improve pay/hours or reduce staff to improve hours for associates that show promise.

    Pros

    Fun, young, interesting first job. Lots of fun events and perks to working there.

    Cons

    Lots of back and fourth before coming to a conclusion. Depending on managers you can have a great time, or a horrible time. Need better management training programs.

    Pros

    People - A&F does a good job of hiring those who fit their culture
    Pay - definitely pay toward the higher end of the scale
    Campus - great gym, cafe and located on a beautiful plot of land
    Promote from within often

    Cons

    Location - New Albany can be a bit difficult to deal with in terms of traffic if you don't live there
    Constant budget cutting - if you make it past the 2 year mark you'll be fine, otherwise seems like people get let go fairly often
    Work hours - unlikely that you will work less than 50 hours per week; 60 more likely

    Manager were flexible with what hours you were able to work and assigned hours. Employees are able to switch shifts easily.
