    I have been working at Abercrombie & Fitch full-time

    Pros

    -The People I get to work with daily
    -New leadership is positively impacting company vision
    -Continued development in my career
    -Autonomy to make business decisions that positively impact sales
    -Having a role in the continued evolution of the brand
    -Great full-time benefits and work perks
    -Compensation for almost all positions have increased over the past year

    Cons

    -Fast paced and sometimes stressful environment during the holiday season but no two days are alike so you always learn something new!

    Advice to Management

    I've noticed the company taking a new direction in terms of work life balance and I would like to see continued movement in this direction.

    I worked at Abercrombie & Fitch full-time

    Pros

    Great campus, great time off, and casual dress.

    Cons

    Overworking, petty work environment, very 'political' in that those that are well liked are the ones that move up or get promoted, and in this particular role there is not much room for growth especially if wanting to move to a different department. You will pretty much be stuck in visual and this is one of the lowest paying departments.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees better, get off your high horse, and have a better attitude. I will never forget saying "good morning" to the head of the entire department, and she simply said "hi.." and in the future would pass myself and others in the Visual department around campus and be just nasty.

    I worked at Abercrombie & Fitch full-time

    Pros

    - Good discount on clothes
    - Opportunity to learn different aspects and roles within the retail business
    - Flexible hours

    Cons

    - Had a very discriminating policy back when I worked for them. I believe it may be different now however it was very disheartening. People who were "better looking" received more hours over people who had been there longer.

    Pros

    You get your 50% employee discount every month but limited to 5 items or 10 items monthly.
    The relationships that you build with your part time associates.
    An easy job.

    Cons

    Management will promise stores/promotions/transfers to keep people from leaving.
    Upper management plays favorites within their district.
    If you get promoted to another district, half the time it’s to a store that hasn’t had a store manager in 3 months.
    Upper Management still stuck in its old ways despite its new and diversified marketing.
    Districts will get desperate to fill their stores with managers and would have pity hires that do no more than stress you and your associates out.
    They care more about theft than the people working in their stores.
    Upper management rarely visits you.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your managers and the associates in the stores, don’t make promises that you can’t keep, and figure out a way to hire quality managers for your stores.
