Manager In Training Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

Interview Details You will meet with the District Manager to interview for the Manager in Training position. It's a very scripted conversation (to promote fairness and consistency across all interviews), so just be yourself! The DM will ask you about the importance of diversity and why it's important in a workplace. All in all, it was a very comfortable interview. I want to say that mainly, the DM is looking for someone who is bright, has leadership skills, and can think on their feet!

I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in April 2014.

Interview Details I applied in store and had an interview the same day. It was a one on one interview with the manager. He talked about the dress code there look is natural. No nail polish, no unnatural hair color, you don't have to wear the clothes but they must be similar to what's in the store, for shoes you can wear flip flops , converse or chuck taylors.

Interview Question – What is diversity to you and is it important in the work place? How would your friends and family describe you? How would you describe Abercrombie?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiation, didn't discuss pay during interview.

Sales Associate Floor Model Interview

Anonymous Employee
Nashua, NH (US)

I applied in-person and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in September 2010.

Interview Details They are a good work force but have low morals and are shallow. They hire based on looks and work skill. They without a doubt ask questions pertaining to your life and sports and being multicultural. I had fun when I worked there it was a little pricey to buy uniforms but I loved what options I had.

Interview Question – I think most people would find what does it mean to you to be multicultural. I am okay with it because I am part of a mixed race family. But leave your mind open to all the possibilities that multicultural continence careers can hold.   View Answer

Leadership Development Program - Merchandising Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

Interview Details I interviewed as part of a campus recruiting process. Dropped my resume on my school's career site, was selected with 5(?) other seniors to interview.
Two days before the interview, we get an email inviting us to a pre-party- a networking/presentation/Q&A/case giving out hybrid event on the next night. I thought this was a bit inconsiderate- students' schedules fill up so quickly, how could we possibly all be able to come that night (work shifts, classes, practices, etc. exist too). Most of us ended up working around it.
We met the recruiters (who I honestly couldn't tell from my fellow students at first since everyone was supposed to dress Abercrombie casual), watched a presentation, and were given a project to complete by the interview the next day.
Before the interview, I took a career aptitude test and then had a one-on-one with the lead recruiter. The questions were as expected - tell me about yourself, leadership, something you overcame, etc.
Heard back about a month later via a generic email.

Merchandising Leadership Development Program Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

Interview Details I went to a career fair at my university and gave them my resume. They emailed me encouraging me to apply online for an on campus interview. I got the interview. The night before the interview they had a reception at a local restaurant where they answered questions and gave everyone a project to do before their interview. The next day when I went to my interview I took a short assessment and then went through two different 30min interviews with one person who actually worked in merchandising and the other with the recruiter.

Leadership Development Program Merchandising Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
New Albany, OH (US)

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in February 2014.

Interview Details on campus interview at college career center where we took the Wonderlich test and had 2 interviews. Flown to Ohio for campus visit. Multiple group activities, interviews with people of varying positions in the company. The whole process is very laid back, but it seemed as though the recruiters were obviously targeting some people while ignoring others, in both professional and unprofessional ways. Must fit in with the culture or else you will hate it.

Interview Question – all pretty standard   Answer Question
