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

Pros

Abercrombie and Fitch was flexible when working around employees schedules, calling in to work etc. It is a good place to meet people in a new city."

Cons

Abercrombie and Fitch is not an easy place to move ahead if you do not have desired "look". Although it is a flexible place to work for teenagers and young adults it is not a well paying job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

People should be hired based on their work skills, intellect etc. Employees should be more welcoming to customers.

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

    Pros

    40% off discount for management
    Access to super marked down mdse in stockroom
    Usually pretty cool coworkers

    Cons

    Too many to name.
    This place will suck every inch of life out of you.
    The level of moral at this place disgust me.
    The company goal is to hire pretty people, period.
    The most ridiculous turnover rate in retail.
    Sucky pay rate, and you are expected to recruit OUTSIDE OF WORK, on your own time, FOR FREE.
    Managers get paid less than minimum wage/hr if they go over 40 hrs/wk, which you are almost always FORCED to do.
    These are just a tip of the iceberg.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have no words. They don't give 2 ***** anyway. Try being more professional.

    I worked at Abercrombie & Fitch full-time

    Pros

    - Great exposure to cross functional teams
    - Good opportunity to work at a large cap company and have real responsibility very young
    - Opportunities for management very early in career
    - Fun, creative, aspirational corporate culture

    Cons

    - Very little training given to managers so you're likely to have at least one really bad manager while you're there
    - Hours not so great, usually 12 hour days
    - Responsibility and promotions usually given to who the higher up's like the most, or feel is the best fit for the company (i.e. wears all current A&F clothing, is tall, slim, and blond, and never plans to leave Ohio) rather than who is most qualified. Beware of this!
