    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch (Los Angeles, CA) in June 2011.

    Interview

    Easy - they basically grade your looks, how you represent the brand's image, whether or not you fit the profile. One of the manager's told me that their general rule of thumb is "girls that you want to hook up with", and "guys that you want to have a drink with". Excellent hiring credo.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch (Pleasanton, CA) in January 2011.

    Interview

    I went into the store one day to buy items that were on sale. I was approached by a female sales associate who came up to me and asked if I ever wanted to work at the store. I said I had considered it but never really gave it much thought. She took me to the counter and filled out a card with her name/reference and contact information for me. She said to email the contact information for the next steps. After emailing, they gave me a call to get to know about me a little bit more. Then they emailed about an in-person interview. I went in and it was very average, nothing out of the ordinary but nothing extraordinary either. I just had to consider scheduling shifts around classes and that was it. They hired me 2 weeks later.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    They were mainly interested in if I could take on the responsibility of taking shifts while still being in school. Nothing was negotiated since it was just a regular job at the mall.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch (Novi, MI) in May 2010.

    Interview

    The group interview was very easy. It had a laidback feel, and most people were wearing Abercrombie-esque clothing, of course. I was in a asmaller group, and ended up being the only girl at my interview. It only took 15 minutes and the questions were not hard at all. Basically, they are looking for super outgoing people, so make sure you respond a lot to your interview, and interact with the people you are with. Also, before I interviewed a girl in the store gave me the advice to make my answers a little lengthy and not one-worded...it worked. They also tried to make it comfortable by throwing in some random personal questions (favorite hang out spots, movies, etc). They do seem to focus a lot on diversity so make sure you go in knowing what it means!

    Overall, I had one interview that only lasted 15-20 minutes (in my group of about 5 people) and I got the job, so yay!
