Productive workplace with great managers and co workers which made it an enjoyable workplace
Abercrombie & Fitch Model (Former Employee), Arcadia, CA – November 6, 2014
Pros: solid first professional job.
Cons: didn't get a lot of hours.
A typical day at work included myself greeting people at the entrance of the store and working at the cash register. I learned that working your hardest at all times really catches peoples attention and is simply a great trait to apply to all workplaces. My co workers were also great friends and great workers. They set a great example when I worked – more... their and were very professional. The hardest part of the job was just getting used to a professional workplace in the beginning because it was one of my first real jobs. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with people who I really liked and looking back at the end of the work day knowing I worked my hardest which is the most satisfying feeling for me. – less

What is there to expect, its Abercrombie and Fitch. The work place fits the stereotype perfect. Outfits are tightly regulated, break time is limited, mistakes are not tolerated, and mangers spend too much time micro adjusting employee habits.
Impact Manager (Former Employee), Willow Grove, PA – November 3, 2014
Pros: retail discounts
Cons: overworked and underpaid
My day always started out by making sure the store looked good before we opened up for business hours. My main goal everyday was to have all shipment processed and the inventory room well maintained.
I learned a lot about what it takes to be a manager who oversees anywhere from 50-70 people at any given time. Always making sure that my associates were – more... providing excellent customer service but still being able to do their job on the work floor was very important.
Co-workers and management all became closely knit, we saw each other everyday and thus made us very close. Some of the hardest parts of my job was during the holiday season and finding enough time to be able to perform all of my tasks assigned to me. The most enjoyable part of my job was being a manager in itself, the experience I gained and the knowledge has helped me greatly these past few years. – less

One of my typical day was that I was given a challenge to manage every thing on my own for a day, the entire Store floor was left on my shoulder's to get it done to start a new challenging role for me.

Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee), El Paso, TX – October 17, 2014
Closing hours are the hardest shift because you need to make sure that store is perfectly clean for next day. The store demand good looking people as associates or managers so not everyone is welcome to be part of the team.

Sales Associate/Customer Service (Former Employee), Cheektowaga, NY – October 13, 2014
Pros: nice discount
Cons: very very discriminated
i loved putting my time into working for Abercombie & Fitch but this company wasn't at all good at letting the employees know their hard work has paid off. All the managers care about is getting new models that are attractive.. i don't think that is very professional.
