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

Pros

Good looking people, flexible hours, great college job. The stores have something for everyone: accounting whizes can work the store numbers, brand enthusiasts can focus on presentation. The flagships are especially good at providing room for specialization.

Cons

Low pay, store policies stifle creativity and flexibility for management. The store suffers from high manager turnover due to low pay and job satisfaction.

Advice to Management

Pay your managers more and allow them to respond to local changes and problems with unique solutions. Also, speed up the supply chain.

    Pros

    Abercrombie and Fitch was flexible when working around employees schedules, calling in to work etc. It is a good place to meet people in a new city."

    Cons

    Abercrombie and Fitch is not an easy place to move ahead if you do not have desired "look". Although it is a flexible place to work for teenagers and young adults it is not a well paying job.

    Advice to Management

    People should be hired based on their work skills, intellect etc. Employees should be more welcoming to customers.

    Pros

    coworkers are amazing. if you don't get caught, you might be able to make your day more enjoyable through interactions with coworkers.

    Cons

    they play favorites like crazy. one manager loves you, you get 30 hours that week. if they switch the scheduling manager, you suddenly have only 10. they hold grudges, are rude, and will probably yell at you if you're caught laughing.

    Advice to Management

    it is your JOB to hire 18 year old frat boys and ditzes. you chose this job, so don't get frustrated with them when they're being themselves. you can't place someone in one spot for 8 hours, with nothing to do and expect them to be well-behaved good looking robots. at least not for the 10 bucks an hour you pay, which you tend to 'accidentally' shorten when paychecks come around.
