    Pros

    The brand name at best. Its considered high-end retail.

    Cons

    Everything....
    the pay is horrible, absolute worst in any retail (high-end and low-end) management I could find.
    overworked...expect to work a minimum of 50 hours but with only paid for 40 hours.
    horrible recruiting and hiring routine, its all based on looks, so you're left with less than capable staff which means you have to pick up all the slack...
    promotions are popularity contest...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good luck if you're still in it...I heard The Gap is hiring and they pay double...

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

    Pros

    Young management and staff so potential to have a great time at work. Casual dress, and semi-relaxed environment (really what you make of it). The job itself, once you get the routine down, is very easy since the company tells you exactly what to do every day through memos and a daily "program".

    Cons

    High turnover, low pay (1/2 pay for over 40 hours), no appreciation from management- a management that sometimes has only been promoted to management because they've been with the company for so long. The expectations are very high for "customer service" standard and "visual presentation" standard but the pay is worse than most retail management positions. You're also expected to complete tasks with models who only work 4-8 hours a week because the company prefers to have "fresh faces" for customers. With these people who hardly every practice doing anything relevant to the tasks you're supposed to get floor sets and updates done very quickly. It can be very frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote based on quality of work and not just based on who gets the best looking recruits. Focus on customer service and differentiating the brand instead of creating an elite environment and basically making a clique out of the store. Pay better and give people more of an incentive to stay- if you only promote from within, you have to keep good candidates who actually want to stay long term.
