    I interviewed in-person. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

    Interview Details

    The interview was a standard interview but it took me to follow up with the district manager to see if i got the job, it took her 3 weeks to get back to me. She was really cool but i think better communication was necessary instead of having me wait almost a month.

    Mostly behavioral questions (tell me a time when.... what did you do, what was the result, etc) 4 year degree required. Usually you get an interview by communicating with someone in the store and they provide your information to the district manager.

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    It is a structured interview that lasts 30-45 minutes, depending on how many questions you have after the formal interview (tip: have a lot of questions and get to know them!). The interviewer will evaluate you on your communication skills and ask you to give examples of how you work with others and handle conflicts. The key is to be outgoing, confident, and well-groomed.

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, then got a call after 1 day for an interview with the DM. Very informal interview, it was done outside the store on the waiting couches in the mall. Interview questions were very open-ended. A friend referred me to the position because he said I would get it because I'm good looking and that's what's mostly they look at anyway at Abercrombie. I ended up not getting the job. Well first of all, I didnt get any call or email and I just know because they never contacted me. I honestly thought they didnt hire me because I wasnt the regular petite skinny size girl, I am short but has curves but not fat or anything.

    I interviewed through other source. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Generally want to see what you look like before interviewing you. I was asked to send a picture to my recruiter so they could show the district manager who does the hiring for all managers below him/her. This is an image based company so they want "great looking" people as their staff. They ask questions from a script that corporate issues, and write down the answers you give them. They are not hard questions and are all open ended asking about scenarios and situations and how you have or would react. Previous job experience is more or less irrelevant as long as you have a bachelors degree.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    Did the whole interview process and got a call saying that I was pre-hired and they really liked my profile and would fit in well with A&F but that they would get back to me because they didn't have space available so they would have to wait for one and get back to me. It's been a couple of days so, we'll see what they have to say.
