    I worked at Abercrombie & Fitch full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work with cool people. Clothing discount. Quick career advancement if you fit the company image (great looking).

    Cons

    As a store manager, you are expected to work until the job is perfect. This could mean putting in 60 hours a week and you don't get paid for over time at all. Even after this your DM and RM will have hardly ever have any positive things to say about you. After being a store manager for 3.5 years I threw in the towel after a senior manager made up a lie about me and told other upper management. This comment was believed as fact and was even put on my review. I was never asked about it and was shocked to see a complete lie factoring into my performance review. I would never work for this company again. The upper management see lower level employees as easily replacable and they do not treat them fairly. You would think that they would realize this attitude is costing the company a lot of money because the turnover rate is outrageous! In addition to this the recruiting and hiring processes are 100% based on looks. If a person is not great looking you can not hire them. The company devotes a majority of their managers times to outside recruing and seeking the best looking people. I personally feel this is a disgusting practice. Turning down highly qualified, smart people because they are not attractive enough does not fit in with my personal morals.

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

    Pros

    - You can easily give away and pick up shifts
    - Free clothes, the jeans are amazing
    - Everyone is extremely helpful

    Cons

    -TOO STICT --- No makeup ( only foundation ), only studs, no nail polish on fingers, but for your toe nails, you're only allowed to wear 3 colors
    - You'll get a write up for no reason
    - When you get fired, they NEVER notify you, you find out when you're not able to clock in.
