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

Pros

You get to wear the clothes! That's a bonus. They say you don't have to wear their clothes but you can't work without them. It's the uniform, however, you do get 50% off the uniform other than that it's just 30% at A&F and 20% at Hollister. Another pro is that the playlist they have on loop isn't that bad to listen to. Also - at the beginning of 2013, they gave every associate a chance to get 7 full price items for 50% off. That's a plus.

Cons

I had a few friends that worked there, but other than that, the people are unbearable. The management is horrible. Any model on the sales floor could run that place better than some managers. The upper managers (district, regional) are sharks. Customers aren't that great either. It's just like high school.

Advice to Management

Act like your managers and not high schoolers. This is my job. My life does not revolve around a job that gives me less than 20 hours a week.

    Pros

    overall, really great employees and great benefits

    Cons

    treat employees like cattle and pay them far less than they are worth. non-salaried managers get paid half-time for over-time in most states.
