    I worked at Abercrombie & Fitch part-time

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with my coworkers and managers. The atmosphere was fun and laid back.

    Cons

    Shifts were very short (4 hours) and it was sometimes difficult to get scheduled unless you were very persistent.

    Advice to Management

    If they could hire less people and just schedule the ones they already have hired to work more, I think things would be less hectic. Always feels like a revolving door of employees at Abercrombie.

    I worked at Abercrombie & Fitch part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Casual work setting, great job if you're a people person. I worked here while I was in school, and the hours were flexible and fair.

    Cons

    Call-in shifts aren't the best. You can't really make plans with your day if you're scheduled to "call-in" at 12pm, to see if they need you to work at 1pm. (Call-in schedule times vary) However, it all depends on your availability as well.

    Advice to Management

    The management team I worked with was great, and I had no negative experiences. Great communication and they were more like mentors than managers. Only time it got weird was when a snobby District Manager would visit, nothing ever seemed to please her. (She is no longer DM now.)

    Pros

    Associate discount, room for advancement, build great relationships, learn how to manage business

    Cons

    Retail hours, training and support, very political the higher you advance, conflicting focuses depending on location, wear many hats

    Advice to Management

    We were expected to strive for a specific conversion goal and provide a world class experience for customers. The Home Office continues to do less and less and expect management and the associates to do more (tasks). These are conflicting. To achieve higher conversion, sales, and customer loyalty pressure from tasks must be alleviated. Management can then spend more time training and developing their staff, building product knowledge, and overall giving customers the experience they deserve.
