    I worked at Abercrombie & Fitch part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    High energy work environment and really nice co workers. They also care about your well being. Mangers were very flexible for time off and scheduling.

    Cons

    Very incompetent managers all of which were recent graduates and very young. Would frequently over schedule the amount of hours they had for their associates each week and as a result would cut peoples hours with little or no notice. There several times, I would show up at work and be told to go home because they were over hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please learn to actually care about your employees and please, please, please train your managers better, so they don't make so many frequent mistakes that in turn trickle down onto other employees.

    Pros

    You will have plenty of opportunities to engage with the customer, and your work schedule is super flexible as long as you are friendly with the managers. The people who work there are all around your age group and you will fit in easily.

    Cons

    The work itself can get monotonous and you are pressured into buying company clothes every new season attire comes out.

    Pros

    We get a nice discount for working for the company, the clothing isn't too bad and you're surrounded by people your age

    Cons

    Too dark, customers can be rude, coworkers can be rude, team keeps changing so it's hard to know who actually works in the store

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay proper wages

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

    Pros

    The people are the reason I stuck around for more than a few months. I've met a few of my very good friends here. You learn a lot about yourself as far as how much you can handle when it comes to stressful, long days. If you can do this job you have set yourself up with a solid foundation for success in any other industry.

    Cons

    There is never a set schedule for managers, even though there is a mandatory management schedule it can change at any given time when people don't show up or something comes up. Its hard to plan your life outside of work because things always change in retail. Turnover kinda sucks sometimes, literally 3-4 managers will quit at once.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Giving managers some sort of incentive for working overtime would be nice.

    Pros

    The operations of the stores are well-structured and organized
    Asking for days off is easily as long as you can find someone to cover your shift.
    Requesting for days off is also an easy process.

    Cons

    Managers play favorites
    Not much team-building.
    Dress code is very strict.

    Pros

    Overnight pay is pretty decent for a teenager. This is a good summer job for someone who is taking a few college courses in the afternoon.

    Cons

    Most of the workers at my store were middle aged Asians that could pass for my parents. For the amount of work they do, I think they deserve to get paid more and treated better. Hours are also insane during floor sets. I worked from 9:30PM-8AM once

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay overnight workers more money. Stop hiring so many people if you already have a set of workers relying on this job to put food on the dinner table!
