    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Very easy group (6 people) interview with a manager-in-training, no unexpected questions. There were just about 5 questions. Got a call with an offer in a couple of days. Unprofessional setting for the interview - we were just standing in a circle in the middle of the mall with a lot of people just walking around.

    Brand Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tampa, FL

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch (Tampa, FL) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and selected a time and date for my interview, and then ended up missing it. I wasn't going to try again, but the store manager actually shot me a text a few days later asking if I wanted to come in for an interview the next day (interviews are held Tuesdays and Fridays). So I said yes and went in on Friday.

    I wore a pair of Abercrombie jeans, a thin, dark grey velvet high neck tank from J Crew (I think), and some black braided leather Abercrombie sandals. The day I went in for my interview, there were three other girls in my group. They were all bleach blonde, about 5'5" and were CAKE-faced. And of course, they all knew each other from high school, lolllllll.

    The actual interview took place at a table in the mall food court. The four of us sat next to each other across the table from the manager. We went in rotation with the questions, that way each of us had the opportunity to speak first. Depending on your level of confidence, this could be scary or exciting. The way we sat down, I made sure to be the first one to be asked questions. I didn't want to look like I copied any of the other girls' answers because I knew from experience that most interviews (at any place really) ask the same generic questions, with a few exceptions. Since we rotated, the second question was asked to the girl to my right first, then the third one to the next girl, etc.

    One of the biggest things they look for during the interview is your ability to easily get along with everyone, including the people you're competing against for the position. They want to see you engaging with the other applicants and being extremely outgoing. I guess the other girls in my group didn't figure that one out, because they were, like, stone faced the whole time. I don't even remember if they smiled, much less cracked a joke. The best way to get hired at Abercrombie is to read the hiring manager's personality and play off of them. It sounds really difficult, but if I personally think that working retail takes a certain type of person, and if you can't at act like you're best friends with the people you met 10 minutes before, retail probably isn't the job for you.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

    Interview

    I arrived 15 minutes early and was given an iPad to check in, and then the manager took me to a location outside the store to have the interview. The interview took a total of abut 30-40 minutes. Overall, it was a good interview but the questions are more thought provoking than you would expect from a store like this.

    Brand Ambassador Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch (Aurora, IL).

    Interview

    Very fast and easy interview but my overall experience working at the store was horrible. Too many call-in shifts and the managers are very bossy and rude to the employees. The managers at my store in particular liked to talk about employees behind their backs as well as the other managers.
