    Pros

    The store has a pretty relaxed environment, the work isn't too hard but you have to make sure you get it done within your shift, AAA discount is pretty good.

    Cons

    pay isnt so great since its only minimum wage, no raise unless you get a promotion to a management position. not much room for growth since theres typically only one stock lead and the management positions dont get paid very well.

    I worked at Abercrombie & Fitch full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The employee discounts are nice and the people there are friendly. They were really accommodating when it came to making a work schedule that also fit my school schedule.

    Cons

    The work environment is very stressful due to the high employee turn over rate. Internal theft is a big issue as well external theft. The strong scent of the store is also hard to get use to.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a full team of managers so that the lead stock can focus on stockroom maintenance, rather than supervise the store. Otherwise, raise the pay rate.

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

    Pros

    It's nice to clean up. Co workers are amazing and know what are doing.

    Cons

    Managers don't dress up to what Abercrombie and Fitch stands for, some don't wear under stuff. It's always dusty. Needs to clean better. Closers need to close better. Do the go backs. Make the store shopable

    Advice to Management

    Do your job. Clean up the store too. Don't just stay on your phones. If someone doesn't show up to a shift lots of times. 2 write them up and fire them.

    Pros

    Loved the people, everyone there made it a very exciting environment to work in. Store was always busy, there was always something for anyone to do.

    Cons

    Schedules were not as flexible as I would have liked. Too many call ins, most were not needed so you kind of wasted your day waiting to hear back from them.

    Advice to Management

    Train your managers better. It really reflects once new employees become not so new employees anymore.

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

    Pros

    Most of my coworkers and managers were great, everyone was friendly and made for a fun environment to work in. Everyone also made sure that they did their job well, and would help others when they needed.

    Cons

    All of us knows that A&F hires their employees based of their looks, so there were some employees who felt entitled and carried an attitude because they were "Abercrombie models". The pay is also low, and hours are hard to get for part-time employees.

    Advice to Management

    Do not hire associates that are too young!

    - very easy work
    - clean environment
    - easy going atmosphere; reasonable and personable managers & staff
    - not very stressful most of the time

    I only worked there for less than a year but my overall experience was pretty decent except for having to pay a large sum of my paycheck to getting the uniforms every season...
