    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

    Interview Details

    I was recruited in the store while I was shopping. The manager came up to me and asked if I was 17 years of age. Then he gave me all of the information to apply online. I came in for a group interview later that week. It was super easy, and super casual. I was offered the job a few days later, and I accepted.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

    Interview Details

    I was "cast" while shopping nearby and applied online. Then scheduled for an interview shortly after.

    It is usually a group interview for the position type but at the specific time slot, I was the only one to interview (one-on-one). They asked me questions like:
    "Describe yourself in 3 words."
    "How would your friends describe you?"
    "What does diversity mean to you?"

    It was a basic personality interview. I'm guessing because they want to make sure you fit into the culture.

    I also discussed a little about the dress code regarding nail polish and earrings. This was brought up when the hiring manager asked if I had any questions.

    I think it is important to note what the company policy is before going in for an interview. Why would you want to work at a company that has policies you don't agree with?

    Interview Questions
    • "What does diversity mean to you?" I was smart and researched what questions they asked and this one particularly stumped me while I was practicing for the interview. However, I think as long as you have basic knowledge of the definition and don't sound stuck-up or mean, you should do fine.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

    Interview Details

    I was in the store browsing and one of the sales associates approached me and asked if i would like to apply for a "model" position, which is basically a sales associate who greets the customers and maintains the company's "look." I figured what the heck and was then referred to formally apply online, which takes 10-30 minutes. After that I scheduled a day and time for the interview. They explain that their interviews are very relaxed and are conducted in groups. I got there like five minutes early and there was only one other person interviewing with me, and the interviewer was about twenty minutes late. We were brought to a corner of the store away from customers, although the music was very loud. We were asked a series of questions that were extremely easy to answer: what does diversity mean to you/how have you experienced it?; how would other people describe you?; and what are some good qualities you have or something like that. It was a very quick and easy interview. If you get the job you'll here back in a week. hope this helps!

    Interview Details

    One of the models recruited me and after turning in the application, there was an interview. This was about a 2 week process. They expect you to come up dressing in their type of clothing for the interview so something like jeans, white top and a dark cardigan. The questions were pretty simple and straightforward. It seems like they were looking more for those who fit into their type of mold and who were sociable and likeable.

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

    Interview Details

    Very easy interview. Took about 10-15 minutes. I had two other individuals in my group interview. Simple. The manager admitted she is required to ask us the questions and has to go off a script. She didn't seem like she was paying too much to our answers. Just writing them down.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process is either with a group or alone with whoever manager is in charge that day. They are given a set of interview questions that they have to follow and they were rather easy, and no brainer questions. Aced it right away and got the job.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

    Interview Details

    The interview is ridiculously easy. You can look up youtube videos that will give you the answers to basically any of the answers that they may ask you. The interviews are conducted in a group setting with maybe 3 or 4 other interviewees. Nowadays, the manager is mostly reading off the paper throughout the interview. They will ask 3 or 4 questions to each candidate (sometimes the same questions to everyone). Most questions aim to get to know you, as a person, better; not your past work experience. And instead of dressing professionally, it is better to wear their clothes so they can better see how you would fit in to the store.

    Got recruited on the streets by one of the managers and was told to apply online. They called me within a week to ask if I could come in for an interview and gave me the choice to choose my own interview time. Went in for an interview and got a call the next day offering the position!
