    It was okay...

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Abercrombie & Fitch

    Pros

    Good discount on clothes, good people to work with

    Cons

    Expensive clothes, bad managers, rude customers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get better managers that aren't rude and know how not to play favorites and dont leave during their shift for 4 hours and go to Starbucks and leave all of the part timers without a manager

  2.  

    Pay sucks, job gets boring once you get too good at it

    I have been working at Abercrombie & Fitch full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good management training program
    You learn in depth how to manage, time, resources, and people. You definitely learn how to plan strategically. You start as a manager from day 1 and are given great responsibility.

    Vacation and paid time off.

    Cons

    You are challenged with having to deal with the incompetence of the general public.

    Language barrier between yourself and 85% of the customers.

    When you become really good at it the job becomes really boring. But that takes a while.

    Folding clothes. Period. Even if it's one shirt, I cringe.

    Continuously having to watch for shoplifters. These aren't little teen shoplifters either, they are full grown adults.

    THE PAY IS ABSURD! I have a bachelor's degree, does that not mean anything to ya'll?! Oh and not just from any school, but from a top school!

    But if you work hard you get promoted quickly and you get a better salary. Thankfully promotions are based on performance, not tenure!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop communicating with us via a printer. Ridiculous, we all have smartphones, give us email addresses and email us, it saves so much time. Give managers at high performing stores bonuses, including to assistant managers who can show results. Communicate with the stores far more. COMMUNICATION IS KEY. Specifically, good communication.
