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

    Pros

    Fun people to work with, the store is pretty organized, get to dress in cute outfits for work, managers were all fun and outgoing. Open environment where I made tons of friends. Discount on clothes.

    Cons

    Sometimes long hours, but usually was fun closing. You stand on your feet all day and wear uncomfortable shoes. Things may have changed a bit since I was there. Pay wasn't great, but overall not many cons, great first job, that actually helped me become a more organized person and make great friends I still have today.

    Pros

    Fun times at work with great co-workers. Laid back atmosphere, its a must to like the smell of cologne.

    No room to grow, at times it feels like a dead end job, reasons why I moved on.

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

    Pros

    Fun laid back atmosphere when working with a good staff. Great health insurance. Ideal first job out of college if you enjoy retail.

    Cons

    8 hour days listening to the same playlist on repeat got very agitating. You are expected to do very tedious tasks in very little time. For the amount of work you do the pay I do not think is ideal.

    Pros

    Need your Bachelor's to become a manager
    Easy tasks
    Decent amount of responsibility
    Benefits/PTO

    Cons

    It's retail at the the end of the day.
    Really depends on your Dm

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

    Pros

    Employee sale is pretty good and happens every month.
    Good work environment with people from many backgrounds.

    Cons

    They keep hiring more people but don’t have enough hours to assign. It turns out a lot of employees only have 4 hours/week or so. This ends up making some employees quit after a short time working there.

    Advice to Management

    Be better in making decision on hiring people and scheduling.

    I worked at Abercrombie & Fitch full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You are left alone but that’s not necessarily a good thing. The job itself was pretty easy. The restrooms were clean.

    Cons

    I didn’t have a good experience here. I was called in to do an interview. The job was advertised as a full time position but once I was offered the job I found out it was seasonal. I decided to try it anyways and was told to come back for orientation. I went in for that which lasted about an hour. All they did was breeze through a policy and procedures book and then I was told to come back the next day for an on the job training day. This is where the real fun begins. I was told the building I worked at was across the street. There were about 8 buildings across the street. After finally getting to my building, I was put right to work. I had all of 3 minutes training with my scanner and what I was supposed to do. I wasn’t shown any of the warehouse. Not even where those clean restrooms were. I was told close to what I thought was the end of my shift I would be working overtime that night and the remainder of the week. This was definitely not the place for me.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest I’m your postings. If it’s seasonal mark it as seasonal.
