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

Pros

Working with fun and lively people

50% discount on "uniforms" (AAA's)

Laid- back environment

EVERYONE IS TREATED EQUALLY- the old rumor that A & F only hired "hot" american people has long been thrown out the window. I have assisted in interviews and everyone is given a fair chance regardless of ethnicity, gender, or religion. And as a matter of fact, A & F is the most diverse place i have ever worked in.

Cons

Managers switch out every few months which makes it hard to have anything "set in stone" for long

You have to purchase clothes (AAA's) every few months, and clothes there are not cheap although you receive a 50% discount on 3 top, 2 bottoms, and 1 pair of shoes

Constantly hiring new people and giving them more hours and the older employees- this was why i quit.

Only receive 30% discount on items that aren't part of AAA's

They only way to move up in pay is if you have a degree (and become a manager) or if you literally work 24/7

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

    Pros

    -the people were nice
    -flexible schedule (will be covered in a con)
    -got good hours when they were "low" on staff

    Cons

    -management is a joke
    -minimum wage
    -they hire on too many people so each person gets one or two shifts a week - so you could take weeks off if you wanted to and no one would care
    -my paycheck was probably less than the amount of my gas to get there
    -shift ranges from 4-6 hours, this can be the only time you get something

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your stuff together or this company will fail completely...the stores closed down for a reason..

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

    Pros

    The best part of working for Abercrombie & Fitch is the initial discount you get when you start the Job, 50% off, if I remember right, and 25% off after that. If you really like Abercrombie clothes, then this is the job for you.

    Cons

    Minimum wage. The management, usually college grads, do not know what they are doing. Most people who work there are superficial. You only get one 15 minutes break if you work below 6 hrs and a 30 minute break if you work longer than 6 hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Up the pay. Treat your employees better. Stop being superficial.
