CASH LEAD / SUPERVISOR (Full-Time) (Former Employee), New York, NYApril 22, 2014
Pros: 40% employee discount!
Cons: odd hours, on-call shift times, limited hours for part-time associates.
Abercrombie & Fitch flagship was a fantastic work experience. A typical day consisted of providing outstanding customer service to ensure an unparalleled experience that will preserve a positive reputation for the company and benefit a steadfast international expansion. Management was friendly. Co-workers were enthusiastic and competitive in reaching – more... sales goals. The most difficult part of the job was the earlier hours and holidays that are necessary in retail. The most enjoyable part was undoubtedly the customer and associate interaction. No need to be so serious. Laughs, smiles, and even a little dancing are encouraged by management and help maintain a fun environment. – less

One of the worst places to work.
Impact (Former Employee), McAllen, TXApril 22, 2014
Pros: fun place to meet nice people and make friends.
Cons: lack of hours. terrible managing in the stockroom.
Somewhat a good place to work. Sometimes it is fun. You meet great people and make friends. But specifically in the store in McAllen, TX, my Impact manager was the worst in the world. She was so unprofessional and gives most of the hours to the people she likes and that chat with her whenever they come instead of putting effort at work. There was times – more... when I would only work 4 hours a week which doesn't really make sense because this store is one of the top selling stores in the nation. Never have a consistent schedule and always waiting for call-ins which makes you very uncomfortable when you go and do other things. Usually would get call-ins when when I was at the wrong place, at the wrong time. I'm pretty sure the Impact job will get a huge boost on my rating and probably other people's rating, if they replace or just fire the current Impact manager. – less

Fun Coworkers, but upper management ruins that
Model (Former Employee), Fort Smith, ARApril 22, 2014
Pros: fun coworkers, relaxed, flexible hours.
Cons: upper management, company values, low pay and no room for advancement
I had fun with my coworkers and most of the managers in my store. The upper management seems to ruin any enjoyable atmosphere though. This company has terrible values and does not respect their employees. I was "cast of" which are the "more attractive" people who were chosen for photos and all that so I was considered an asset. The difference in treatment – more... between cast of and other employees is evident. The company even gave us a free pair of jeans each one time while other store associates got nothing. It was always easy to give away a shift if you didn't want to work. Scheduling was pretty flexible, but that's the only other plus. – less

Very diverse and friendly environment
Lead Impact, Sales Supervisor (Current Employee), Manhattan, NYApril 16, 2014
Pros: flexible schedule
Cons: short breaks, customer service gets annoying at times
A day at AnF goes by pretty quickly, co-workers are very friendly for the most part.
Most managers are very strict but that's how a successful company gets ahead effectively with minimum time loss.
I've learned to be patient and understanding towards customers and co-workers sometimes.
The hardest part of the job is to deal with angry and stubborn customers – more... that won't take no for an answer.
The most enjoyable part is the flexibility in the schedule and the amount of employees that makes it almost sure to be chatting or interacting with someone everyday. – less

It was like working with family
Model/Sales Associate (Former Employee), Bloomington, MNApril 13, 2014
On a typical work day, I would cashier, helped customer find the sizes, colors, etc that they were looking for and would greet them as they came in and thanked them as they left out. I love working for this company it was like working with one big family, everyone got a long. The hardest part about this job was working in the dark, and the most enjoyable – more... part of the job was being able to pick your own schedule and hours. – less

Productive and fun workplace with great individuals
Assistant Manager & Brand Ambassador (Current Employee), Jacksonville, FLApril 9, 2014
Working for this company provides you with a diverse and challenging environment to work in, while meeting and interacting with dynamic individuals on a day to day basis. A typical day at work involves running the company through strict standards, maintaining the sales floor and stockroom, managing employees and working with other managers as well, – more... and last but certainly not least, giving great customer service to clients. The hardest part of the job is keeping the store up to par, especially in a high-volume store, where the product and store maintenance are very demanding. The most enjoyable part of the job are the great and fun-loving associates you get to work with everyday, the awesome people you meet, and the amazing clothes! – less

Easy, fun and unprofessional.
Store Manager (Former Employee), Carlsbad, CAApril 6, 2014
Pros: excellent management training program
Cons: unprofessional, shallow
Simple tasks much like any other clothing retailer, except advancement is based almost entirely on your own physical attractiveness and the attractiveness of the people you recruit. Regardless of the actual staffing needs of your store, you are pressured to recruit as many attractive young persons as possible.
