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

Pros

-flexible part time hours
-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.
