Impact Team Member/Sales Associate Interview

Impact Team Member/Sales Associate
London, England

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in June 2010.

Interview Details Very easy interview. Just be confident because it is a group interview and you stand out. They ask you what does diversity mean to you? When did you overcome a task/project whatever? I just made up a story about how I had group work in school and had to work with peers with different schedule which made it difficult but i personally delegated tasks and blah blah..The interview was very easy. You'll even find some of the questions online.

Manager In Training (MIT) Interview

Manager In Training (MIT)
London, England

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed 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)

Manager In Training (MIT) Interview

Manager In Training (MIT)

Interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch

Interview Details 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!

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).

Floor Model Interview

Floor Model

Interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch

Interview Details it was very casual, they asked a few simple questions to get to know me better such "use one word to describe your personality". it was very relaxing, just a little pretentious as i heard from the scout that found me that they really just hire depending on your looks.

Interview Question – 3 words that your friends or family would use to describe you   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – the pay was not good enough and i heard their working conditions were poor.
