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

Pros

No pervious experience required, they'll teach you everything you need to know about running a multimillion business. Fun environment to work in while you're training.

Cons

Once you advance to a higher management position your supervisors no longer care how many hours over 40 you work without overtime pay. It's looked down upon if you leave on time, when your scheduled shift is over. You must have tough skin to work here: the negative feedback is cutting and you'll get no positive feedback.

Advice to Management

Want to keep those positive managers you spent so much time developing? Be nice, be thankful for their hard work, and pay them for their time! You're selling clothing to teenagers, not saving lives. Relax and provide the cool, fun environment you promised in the interview.

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

    Pros

    I have no pros at all

    Cons

    Work Schedule is awful work 2-11 pm 3 days. Work weekends. They say your salary in the interviews, but you are not your actually hourly. They say you have paid holidays, but you do not. They use the holiday as one of your days off for the week. And overtime is half of your hourly pay, not time and a half. Half. $7.50.

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

    Pros

    The discounts were good but you still had to buy the clothes from them. The people were great to work with and some of the manager were great, others not so much. The location was nice.

    Cons

    The smell of the place can get pretty bad after woking there for more than a week. The management didn't treat the employees very well, there was exceptions . The pay was minimum wage and you had to buy clothing from them.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees like there not disposable.
