    Pros

    fast paced environment, great training program, advancement opportunities are endless especially for international expansion

    Super easy. If you're looking for a part-time job for after school hours or on the weekends, this is a piece of cake.

    I worked at Abercrombie & Fitch part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The employees and managers are really nice and helpful. They don't hire sketchy people, so no weirdos lurking in the corn. Easy money. Easy hours. Work really well around schedules so if you're in school, that's a major plus. Very organized and structural. There is an answer for everything that they do.

    Cons

    This is a high traffic store that has big issues with thieves. There is not much you can do if the thief runs out of the store (you cannot chase them through the mall.) You have to wear their clothes, but they don't mind if you wear the same thing over and over again as long as you wash. Make up is strict, has to be natural. No facial piercings. No nail polish. I'm not sure on facial hair. The worst policy is that employees have to be attractive. That is very subjective and sad that it is actually policy. Actually, that boils down the whole company. The company sucks because it has it's nose stuck up in the air. They don't even realize, only middle schoolers wear their brand because they know no better. TAKE THAT DAMN MOOSE/A&F OFF OF THE CLOTHING. Nobody wants to see that.
