    Pros

    The only pros about working for the company are the social aspects of the job, you become very good friends with everyone and start to become one big family.

    Cons

    - 0 hour contracts so you never exactly know how many hours in a month you will have to work.

    - 15 minute lunch breaks

    - Minimum wage

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

    Pros

    You 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.

    Cons

    The 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

    I worked at Abercrombie & Fitch

    Pros

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

    Cons

    The 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.
