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.

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

    Pros

    Not a very strenuous job. Other floor models are actually pretty nice. Basically you get paid to stand around and look hot as well as greet people.

    Cons

    Poor hours. Management can be really uptight. Almost no chance to move up in the company. Very conceited. Poor hours and pay.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to properly manage a company for Christ's sake.

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

    Pros

    Discounts on clothing
    Fun work environment
    Good music (if you like it)

    Cons

    Toward the end of my employment with A&F (around 2009), we were forced to use employee discounts on certain clothes in certain colors. It was really like you were working to be compensated in clothing.
    Many if not most of my coworkers were lazy, and just wanted to stand around looking pretty.

    Advice to Management

    Relax on the color schemes for employee clothing.
    Stress customer service skills and training for employees.
