Pros

Discount on clothes. Worked at THE GROVE in Los Angeles which was always busy. Always busy so time flew by.

Cons

Manager hid upstairs and people on sales staff felt entitled to not have to work hard because they have been working there for so many years.

Advice to Management

Let your team change with the times. If your team is not performing you should either tell them they need to work harder or coach them out.

    Pros

    Great discount on clothes, good benefits. Thats about it.

    Cons

    Store manager does not know how to communicate to team where there at or how to become better, hides upstairs never is on the floor. If a guest asks for her or needs assistant waits over 20 min to come and assist or makes an excuse to not help. New corporate management from Abercrombie has been hired, changing the entire culture of the company from paradise to having no life. There is no work life balance. Its become a limited brand company mentality do more with less.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink what your doing to people. You dont work at the store level, you dont know what its like having to do these new processes and how its affecting peoples lively hoods. Everyone is going home unhappy after work. This has and will continue to reflect sales performance and customer experience. You are running this once great company into the ground.

    Pros

    When I first started, I really loved my job, the restaurant, the food and the atmosphere. There is opportunity to make great money during convention season but that's only half a year - you will need another job during the slow season. I had some great coworkers and enjoyed coming to work.

    Cons

    A manager was hired to "clean house" and they did. The bad part was that a lot of long-time employees were fired for stupid reasons; if you were on his good side, your job was safe. The cafe used to be very brand-oriented as a casual formal restaurant; service went downhill because new servers were hired that didn't care about their jobs and management looked the other way when trainers complained. It went from being a great server job to just average.

    Advice to Management

    No reason to say anything -- tried to do it while employed and wasn't taken seriously. Why bother now?
