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.

  1. It was a fun environment, with fun people but definitely had some negative aspects.

    Pros

    -flexible part time hours -great first job or through college -discounts on clothing - fun people - long time friends - easy work

    Cons

    - intimidating if you're skinny but by no means a size 0/00. - REALLY loud music which you get used to but still can't be good for your hearing - really smelly - meticulous folding - super strict look policy (dress code) - can be boring depending on your location and if you're the greeter stuck up front for 5 hours

    Advice to Management

    I loved all of the managers. It does take some time to feel like they like you, but if you prove you're reliable, they'll come around. As for the district managers... Unless you're pursuing modeling (and are the A&F ideally sized model) its best to lay low with them. They can kill your self esteem in an instant, if they even acknowledge you to begin.


  2. Live the brand

    Pros

    Tons to learn with a very reputable company. When you do well, you get recognition and promotions are directly tied to performance.

    Cons

    Long hours. Starting salaries are better elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Work hard and live the brand
