Boring

Sales Associate (Model) (Former Employee)
Manchester, England

I worked at Abercrombie & Fitch part-time for less than a year

ProsYou get discounts on the clothes and essentially it is a very easy job. You literally just stand in the dark folding clothes and greeting people and occasionally working on the till. You get to chat to the other employees whilst the managers aren't around.

ConsThe same music is played every day, it stinks of the perfume and you could be left on the same station for all 4 hours of your shift

Discomforting but extremely flexible

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Abercrombie & Fitch

ProsThe working hours are extremely flexible and one can pass on shifts to others if necessary and pick up others' last minute if wanted.

ConsThe working environment is fairly unpleasent, with loud music, no natural light, darkness, and the constant (great) perfume in the air, which however dries out your mouth constantly.
