    Interview

    Great and easy. Met with Store manager first, they ask questions and then they see if you were qualified. If they feel like you did a good job they refer you to a the district manager then you have a second interview.

    Interview Questions

    • They just want to know that you are somewhat attractive and if you have any retail experience with a Bachelors you will get it. Pretty pathetic.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation.. the salary sucked but there was no room to budge.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch (Paramus, NJ) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The interview took about 30 minutes. The questions were mostly situational. I was asked approximately 15 questions. As I had mentioned, the questions were in regards to having to describe a time or situation where certain tasks were accomplished. I heard back from the district manager, who conducted the interview, two weeks later (even though I was told I would hear back in one week). I was offered the position immediately upon returning the call from the district manager and she had explained the salary and the benefits and asked whether or not I accepted the offer -- which I did. She wanted me to start immediately, but due to upcoming events I had already made a commitment to, I began a week and a half later.

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

    Interview

    It was a lengthy interview. The whole thing took about and hour. Lots of in depth questions asking for examples from your education experience and past work experience. You have to think quickly. Make sure you come in with your accomplishments in mind and how you achieved them. The questions are not difficult, but you definitely need to come prepared.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

    Interview

    Straight forward interview (scripted) dealing with background and past job experiences. Primarily examples of when I was in a leadership or management position in the past and how well I performed. Attire was casual...pretty much anything from the store, I was told to wear jeans and a t-shirt with converse if I had them. The interview was with the district manager, I had expected to work at a more convenient location than I was assigned and somewhat misled. I was fully expecting to work in the location that I was recruited, where the application was submitted, and where the interview took place. When I was offered the position, I requested a day to think it over, and the next day I accepted....only to find out they expected me to work in a location about 20 minutes farther away.

    Interview Questions

    • Give examples of when you were expected to manage a large group and how well you performed   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Not much room to negotiate. I was offered a salary of $31,000.00/yr but in reality it was only $14.90/hr (relatively easy to get a few hours of over time though). I highly recommend requesting a written offer with the salary and benefits completely written out and documented before signing any contract.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch (Boston, MA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    1 phone interview with district manager to see what background the applicant has and trying to see if they would be a good fit.
    Looks goes a long way in this company and they will target you for a role based off of appearance, literally.
    in person interview with same manager.
    District manager is typically friendly and genuinely shows an interest in what you have accomplished. The interview is mostly figuring out your commitment to a job rather than trying to decipher your core competencies. I suggest showing that you have a strong work ethic and interest to get other people excited about shopping with Abercrombie. You must come across as outgoing, confident, and strong attention to detail.
    Aslong as you are not a moron and show competency in not burning things, you should be a good fit.
