No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Great health insurance and lots of training Was able to transfer to a new city and the company helped with relocation costs

Cons

Sometimes only had a few hours to sleep between shifts Worked 6 days a week on salary Not much potential to eventually make much money, even with regular promotions Shallow hiring practices Too much turnover in management

Advice to Management

Be willing to pay your managers more and hold onto them rather than continuing to hire new ones

    I worked at Abercrombie & Fitch full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    its a fun place to work, you get to know your staff

    Cons

    not to much room for growth. Very unethical when promoting to store managers. and the turn over for managers is awful and can become very stressful when you have to work with 2 managers in a store. you do not get pay enough for the amount of work you do and raises with associates and management are not satisfying

    Advice to Management

    to really look for better ways to help with district managers not depending on only store managers for feedback, but to also make your assistants feel more appreciated and stop a lot of drama from upper management like dm"s n store managers consulting about there assistants in negative ways. overall upper management needs to be more professional.

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

    Pros

    Young company, fun coworkers, you can get promoted fast if you have the look (meaning attractive, wholesome) and you are intelligent and hardworking. I made a lot of friends working there.

    Cons

    Compromising ethics, hiring people based on looks and the sheer volume of things that you need to juggle and perfect. Upper management is extremely tough and expects perfection from your employees to the standards in your store. Everything in the store has a certain place, from the number of inches a zipper should be pulled down on a jacket to the amount of inches from the wall a table should be.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your managers what they are worth, not half pay for overtime and give bonuses to managers for meeting their sales goals. Having contests where a few stores out of hundreds get bonuses for arbitrary plans doesn't motivate us. Turnover would be a thing of the past if you valued your management and even associates better. It is s really hard to recruit amazing looking people to work at minimum wage.
