    I worked at Abercrombie & Fitch

    Pros

    The people are so friendly and atmosphere is wonderful. Customers were not preppy targeted market it was 90% 40 year old minorties and resellers and 10% british tourists. However I loved my job and I loved my friends there. I felt important and enjoyed floor sets.

    Cons

    Low pay and not a lot of hours

    Pros

    The best part of working for A&F is working with your team. You truly become a family and develop a support system within the store, district, and even the region. There are so many resources and so many opportunities to grow. You get so much practical experience in the world of business and you can truly excel. You can go from being in-store, to home office, to opening stores internationally, etc. Definitely a great place to launch your career, and if you work hard, stay for years and years to come.

    Cons

    Holiday season is tough, but it's retail so that's expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always remember the culture of we mindset.

    Fun atmosphere. Can wear anything to work, really, as long as it looks "hip" and "laid-back".

    Can't really wear makeup, or over-do hair.

    I worked at Abercrombie & Fitch

    Pros

    The Abercrombie & Fitch Home Office is a very fun place to work, especially for younger professionals. The atmosphere is both professional and casual, and projects a sense of community. I really enjoyed working there.

    Cons

    A&F wants their employees to impersonate the "brand" and, at times, it can be a bit overwhelming. It feels as though management may be guilty of judging you based on your appearance, instead of solely on your performance.
