    I have been working at Abercrombie & Fitch part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I liked working there to be honest. The work is fairly easy, folding clothes, doing go-backs, working the register. Simple stuff. The other brand reps are great, and the assistant managers at my store are cool and awesome people, and we have fun.

    Pay isn't great, but this job is definitely great for college students that would like a little extra spending money.

    Cons

    I can barely get any shifts. Sometimes I keep getting removed from shifts. If you actually want to work, sign up for shift notifications.

    A&F is always hiring and its tough to get hours. Also, brand reps are always coming and going. Its like I'm meeting someone new whenever I go in for a shift.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring so many brand reps and just work with the ones you have right now. Make them all part-time if you have to, just keep the ones you have and give them hours.

    Pros

    -Team Environment
    -Beautiful Campus
    -Benefits
    -401(k) matching

    Cons

    -Upper level management doesn't have a clear cut strategy and are shooting in the dark. Their strategy changes so often, they have know idea what is working and what isn't.
    -Working culture can be very unprofessional at times
    -Roles and responsibilities are changed entirely and employees have no say in the matter
    -Employees seem to be an expendable resource

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better with campus employees and treat them better. Employees are the heart of any business and should be treated with more respect. Actually live your culture & values. Walk the walk instead of talking the talk.

    Pros

    Fun campus, you get to make garments that you'll see people wearing in the wild.

    Cons

    Morale is sub-par. If you're not type-a or if you don't enjoy stepping on others to get ahead, you will feel very out of place here.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency is important. I understand the idea of not letting your right hand know what your left hand is doing, but the lack of transparency adds to disinterest and disenchantment.

    Pros

    Easy job that’s really it also a lot of room for advancement as far as being and sm but after that don’t hold ur breath for anything bigger

    Needs more hours for workers and a pay raise . Don’t expect to cut hours for management and associates give more ship and expect us to do the same quality work something will slip

    Advice to Management

    I was an AM there And the pay was $15 an hour and it required me to have a Bachelors degree Unacceptable!

    Pros

    Cool people, store smells good, okay discount

    Cons

    Rude management, No hours, Unclear instruction, Lots of drama

    Advice to Management

    I really enjoyed working here at the beginning but soon after I started working with one Manager who gave me a hard time about everything I did. Upon quitting I was told rudely by the same manager that I was close to being fired anyway due to a bad review, which I was never told about. Just overall the management does not communicate clearly and was just immature.

    It's a great first job they teach you skills that you will use after college. Even how they train you to look for shoplifters will serve you well in future sales job

    Very tedious work when there is no one around.

    Advice to Management

    Get A&F back on a growth path. Get smart about what trends are hot and pay creative people well.
