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

    Pros

    -Schedule flexibility: if you really needed a certain day off, you can easily switch your working days and off days with another manager just as long as he/she is willing to.
    -Health benefits: I haven't signed up myself because I lost the opportunity to but my store manager told me the benefits are great.

    Cons

    -The company seeks to hire associates who adhere to the look policy. Therefore, managers may work with associates who may fit the company's look but not necessarily have working experience. Working with associates who may be as young as high school students tend to have less responsibilities and those who aren't high school students. Thus, they may not even show up for their shifts.

    Advice to Management

    I understand the company seeks to hire associate who fit the company's brand and looks. However, this does not create the most effective and productive working experience since the basis of employment is not working experience or how well he/she can carry out a given task.
    As someone who has worked at the kids store, pumping up the volume seemed unnecessary. Most of the customers were parents and most had difficulty with the music.

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

    Pros

    you meet some great people, you're managers are mostly around your age so you definitely can connect with them easily. The job is very easy, you just walk around, greet people, and fold clothes.

    Cons

    the look policy of the company is a little too demanding. also you don't have much room for growth and promotions. you're stuck in the same position.

    Advice to Management

    You should really consider hiring undergraduates as managers, many are definitely qualified for the position. you guys require a four year college degree, for not a very hard job.
