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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
