    Pros

    Arguably the best thing about this job is how flexible they are with their hours. As long as you schedule off about two weeks in advance, they will give you that time off with no hassle. Everyone is also really chill, which definitely lightens up the work environment considering it is the "typical" retail job. Also, the employee discount is half off of most items.

    Cons

    This job definitely has its cons, but they're all pretty much expected. First, I don't think any retail job deserves to be a minimum wage pay, but the reality is that's the pay for most mall retail jobs. Second, the work environment can get stressful on weekends especially when we're understaffed. ,

    Pros

    Abercrombie is great if you're looking for something temporary job for example just for the summer or holiday to make extra cash, and you also get 50% off on most of the items there

    Cons

    I've worked for Abercrombie for just over 2 years. the biggest factors are, No growth unless obtaining a college degree or the off possibility the current key holder leaves. The management doesn't care for the employees (i had one tell me this and went on to say we were replaceable). Management uses you for their own needs with no sign of benefits. The hours given suck and they pay minimum wage. At times it feels you're in modern-day slavery bending over backward to please the managers every need while they're just sitting in the back and talk.

    Advice to Management

    Retail is going under, no use of trying to hide it... give better oppertunities to current employees and at least try you're best to care. Hire management with better background (recent management have been very rude and manipulative)

    Pros

    Discounted clothing, few employees are okay.

    Cons

    Most employees don't want to interact with others, the smell and sound of the stores gets repetitive

    Advice to Management

    I'm sure they are doing the best while being hamstrung by management
