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

    Pros

    Extensive management training program that covers a wide variety of topics including HR, loss prevention, store experience, recruiting, people development, customer service, etc. You are put into situations that will drain the life out of you with goals that are impossible to achieve but are great learning experiences to develop management skills.

    Cons

    A&F is obsessive about certain aspects of "store experience" to the point where sales and customer service are sacrificed for, as an example, perfectly folded stacks of 25+ shirts. Upper management seem incapable of staffing their stores with managers (probably because the pay is ridiculously low for a job that requires a 4-year degree) but don't allow extra hours of labor to compensate. Opinions on how to run the business more effectively have no place here besides small, insignificant ideas here and there. Work turns into a daily battle of trying to keep presentations folded while cheap, inconsiderate customers tear through stacks of 25+ shirts. There is little room for advancement and promotions are extremely competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management must be more open to walking into a store as they are run on a day to day basis and accept that there are issues with the way business is run at the store level. Be realistic about the state of the company at that level and maybe we wouldn't be forced to cut hours drastically across the board to compensate for ridiculous over expenditures in labor wages to prepare for visits.

    Pros

    It is a fun and enjoyable job to have. There are fun and friendly employees.

    Cons

    The pay is not great. The discount is reasonable. The music is annoying. It gets frustrating tondeal with rude customers.
