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

    Pros

    Good looking people, flexible hours, great college job. The stores have something for everyone: accounting whizes can work the store numbers, brand enthusiasts can focus on presentation. The flagships are especially good at providing room for specialization.

    Cons

    Low pay, store policies stifle creativity and flexibility for management. The store suffers from high manager turnover due to low pay and job satisfaction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your managers more and allow them to respond to local changes and problems with unique solutions. Also, speed up the supply chain.

    Pros

    Discounts on clothing
    Fun work environment
    Good music (if you like it)

    Cons

    Toward the end of my employment with A&F (around 2009), we were forced to use employee discounts on certain clothes in certain colors. It was really like you were working to be compensated in clothing.
    Many if not most of my coworkers were lazy, and just wanted to stand around looking pretty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Relax on the color schemes for employee clothing.
    Stress customer service skills and training for employees.
