Pros

Great people, lots of new faces, really teaches you how to manage a store and a bunch of people. If you can be a store manager at A&F, any other store would be a piece of cake.

Cons

It is exhausting - this job physically and mentally drains you. When you're an SM depending on your management situation/store/season, you can average 60 hour workweeks...but you get paid zero overtime. Even when you're not physically AT work you still have to work on the schedule, or field phone calls/txts from associates or other managers, or attend your own management meetings on your DAY OFF which you do not get paid for. Rarely - maybe 3 times a year - do you get two consecutive days off in a week. Poor work/life balance, and it's very easy to feel defeated because there isn't much constructive criticism. If you can be charming AND good looking, you've got potential. But be prepared to spend your days off too tired to do anything, and every other day at work too busy to even take the "hour" break you're "required" to take.

Advice to Management

Pay a fair salary. Reward more often to increase positive results. If people don't feel valued, they'll work just hard enough not to get fired. Look at your own turnover rates and DO something about it! Help us help you.

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere, the people that I worked with were all around the same age and had a lot in common. We had fun working together.

    Cons

    No recognition for work well done, no possibility of raise. There were quotas to fill in regards to the amount of people we had hired in each ethnic group, and qualified applicants were turned down because they were not the right skin color.
