    I have been working at Abercrombie & Fitch

    Pros

    Laid back, low stress, everyone looks nice, store has cool atmosphere

    Cons

    For call-in models, you can only know 1 hour in advance whether or not you'll be working that day, which was a bit inconvenient for planning ahead
    Potentially long hours, especially during big sales
    No formal training period, but you can pick things up quickly if you ask your managers and other models for help

    I have been working at Abercrombie & Fitch full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy work yet you learn how to run a business, friends, you can switch off days, discount, full time benefits, paid vacation

    Cons

    Low salary and standards have become too low

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    District managers create personal relationships making it hard for other managers to move up, stop putting so much focus on store manager and only giving them incentives (AM's work just as hard)

    "Model"/Retail Associate

    Former Employee - Sales Associate (Model) in Chicago, IL (US)
    Former Employee - Sales Associate (Model) in Chicago, IL (US)

    I worked at Abercrombie & Fitch part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I liked the flexible schedule, it was very accommodating for my classes. The atmosphere was very relaxed because it isn't commission-based but you still have to push certain products sometimes. This is a great first job to have and really encourages you to grow as a person (mostly because it is retail and customer relations). I really liked my managers and they were there to help, not just enforce policy. I felt I became more outgoing (from all the required taglines, etc) and more able to deal with real life. It helps if you're good-looking.

    Cons

    Buying the clothes was a little expensive, but I liked the clothes and normally wear this brand so it wasn't a huge hardship to deal with. Rotating assistant managers confused me sometimes because I would report to a new person so often.
