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

    Pros

    You'll have the opportunity to meet a lot of outgoing people, the training process is very smooth since the work you do is so exceedingly simple.

    Cons

    They will literally remove you from the sales associate position, which they call their "models" if you gain too much weight. They expect their associates, who are for the most part part-time, to be on-call on their days off, which is absurd for a job that pays minimum wage.

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

    Pros

    If you're good looking, have a good personality and a degree, they'll hire you without any experience. So use it to your advantage. It pays well for being right out of college and the benefits/healthcare coverage are great.

    Cons

    First off, if you don't have the look, you unfortunately won't get hired. Sad but true. Secondly, they'll promise growth and moving up within the company constantly. Part of it is true, but many of the managers just get stuck with no real chance of getting a better opportunity outside of working over 40 hours a week in a mall. Not to mention, if you go over 40 hours, they don't give you time and half. They give you "Half" pay. That's right. HALF. I don't know how they do it legally but they've found a loophole in the system. Don't bother reaching out to HR because they're basically non-existent. They don't answer phones. They have voicemails that you can leave with a promise to "call you back." But that doesn't always happen. Again, take the job if you need it, but don't expect to stay long and be happy. You have to recruit other good looking kids to work as associates called "models." It's the most awkward part of the job and be prepared to get laughed at. Turnover rate is around 9 months to a year. Most likely because blasting 40 min. loop soundtrack made us all want to knock ourselves unconscious.

    Advice to Management

    Don't give your employees "half-pay" when they've reached over 40 hours a week. I've never been more discouraged when I'm over 40 hours, still working, but making less than minimum wage.
