Manager In Training (MIT) Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
Application Details

I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in September 2013.

Interview Details

Sent CV and cover letter off and heard back the next working day. However, speaking to people at the interview, they had all waited a few months to hear back so I was just lucky.

Invited to group interview at London flagship store. Around 13 of us and we each had to introduce ourselves and then answer Why Abercrombie? What are you looking for in a job? What qualities would you bring to the role?

They then take a photo to send off to management. (I have a suspicion this is the most important part of the interview)

    Pleasant experience - sat around a table with the other candidates who was also going for the position. We were asked the same questions in turn; basic questions such as why do you want to work for Abercrombie and what do you do for fun. We then had our photograph taken as fitting the image is a big requirement for Abercrombie I would advise wearing casual navy and white with denim shorts or jeans, naturally styled hair and very minimal makeup!

    I applied online – interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Still waiting to hear back. Applied on the website and was invited in for a group interview within a week or so at their London HQ. There were 10 of us, mostly from "diverse" backgrounds. We were all wearing A&F clothing. The regional recruitment manager hosted the session. We were told we would hear back within a week or two (it's a week today and still waiting to hear back).

    First a group info session where we were given info and asked basic questions like what we like to do on our spare time, what languages we know etc.. Very informal. The second interview was also very informal, and the questions were mainly competency based. Both interviews were like conversations and the people there were really friendly

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

    Interview Details

    I've done the first two interviews for an MIT position. Both have been very casual, I turned up wearing little makeup, A&F clothes, and a huge smile. The first interview was very quick; it was meant to be a group interview but the other applicant didn't show. Consisted mostly of telling me about the role, asking a few basic questions like 'what do you do for fun' and taking a photograph. Second interview was more detailed, asked lots of situational questions like 'describe a situation where you've had to work with people from different backgrounds' and 'have you ever had lots of tasks to complete within a limited time? if so, how did you prioritise?' etc. I'm waiting to do my third interview tomorrow so fingers crossed!

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through the Abercrombie website and was invited to attend a group information session, from this I didn't get any further. I was told I could re-apply after 3 months, which I did.

    After attending a first interview (info session) again, I got through to the second stage.
    The first round consists of a group session with about 3 or 4 other people, held at the flagship A&F store. It's very informal with the recruiter just asking about yourself, and why you are suitable for the company.

    The second stage was an 1:1 interview with a district manager, mine was at the Westfield Stratford Hollister store. This time it was a bit more formal, even though it was just out the back of the store. Questions were based very much upon your experience, putting yourself in situations and explaining how you would handle each one. I was told I'd hear within 2 weeks whether I'd get through to the next stage or not.

    After 1 week I got a call from the guy who interviewed me in the first round, informing me of getting through to the third and final interview.

    This time it was informal, located in a local Starbucks near the flagship A&F. It was with a senior recruiter for the UK, and it was basically getting a second opinion of me. The questions were more laid back, with a few directed towards A&F and how you feel you would suit the company. I was then told a week later that I'd got the job!

    Overall the process was laid-back, and relatively simple if you are passionate about the brand. I'd advise people who got turned away from the first round to try again after 3 months.

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

    Interview Details

    applied and interviewed same week, they are always looking for managers. Interview was one on one and felt like a conversation more than an interview. Dress casual! They want to get a better picture of how you would look in their clothes so it would be best to take a look at what they have in store and wear something similar to that. Mostly experience questions, describe a time when you worked really well with someone, describe a time when it was difficult to work with someone... 99% of the time will ask what your definition of diversity is and if its important in the work place. Part of their hiring criteria is to be great looking, but in a natural way so not too much make up.
