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

Pros

Great health insurance and lots of training
Was able to transfer to a new city and the company helped with relocation costs

Cons

Sometimes only had a few hours to sleep between shifts
Worked 6 days a week on salary
Not much potential to eventually make much money, even with regular promotions
Shallow hiring practices
Too much turnover in management

Advice to Management

Be willing to pay your managers more and hold onto them rather than continuing to hire new ones

    -great first job or through college
    -discounts on clothing
    - fun people
    - long time friends
    - easy work

    Cons

    - intimidating if you're skinny but by no means a size 0/00.
    - REALLY loud music which you get used to but still can't be good for your hearing
    - really smelly
    - meticulous folding
    - super strict look policy (dress code)
    - can be boring depending on your location and if you're the greeter stuck up front for 5 hours

    Advice to Management

    I loved all of the managers. It does take some time to feel like they like you, but if you prove you're reliable, they'll come around.
    As for the district managers... Unless you're pursuing modeling (and are the A&F ideally sized model) its best to lay low with them. They can kill your self esteem in an instant, if they even acknowledge you to begin.
