    I have been working at Abercrombie & Fitch full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Pros are: flexible scheduling, great Career Development Path, opportunity for growth within the company, great people, fun and friendly atmosphere, fast-paced, best training program, opportunity for advancement, and high energy.

    Cons

    Cons are retail hours and the salary for entry level management jobs. Hiring and promotions are somewhat "looks-based" so in few instances hard work is overseen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To improve turnover rate, offer more incentives for entry level positions.

    Pros

    Laid back work environment, really nice people, great flexibility, good hours if you're a good worker, great way to break yourself into retail

    Cons

    Store managers can be a little power hungry and get catty with assistant managers, customers tend to have a bad attitude towards employees (models in particular), and hours have to be spread across a lot of models. As a model (floor sales associate), you don't get a lot of hours unless the managers like you. As an impact (stockroom), you get a lot more hours, but it's also more work, more pressure, less fun, and same pay.
