I have been working at Abercrombie & Fitch full-time for more than a year

Pros

Awesome campus
Amazing cafeteria
People are typically young, outgoing and have interesting backstories
You get to wear A&F, Hollister and Gilly Hicks to work everyday. This means shorts when it's warm!
Lots of campus events and after hours get-togethers

Cons

Long, hard hours (depending on your position, average is probably 53-ish hours a week)
High expectations of quality, sometimes impossibly high
If you don't fit the A&F mold, it is likely that you will feel like an outcast

Truthfully, the HR department here is scary. There really is no typical HR team that you would find at any other company of this magnitude (which is ridiculous, by the way), but instead, we have a a large recruiting team and they are looked at as HR. Recruiting for this company is frightening as it is - just read the other reviews - but the fact that this is the team that sets the standards for the company says a lot about expectations. If you are not impossibly outgoing, full of energy, ready to schmooze and party with your superiors, (and let's face it, being skinny seems to be a requirement), then you're going to have a hard time here. That is the truth of the matter.

    I worked at Abercrombie & Fitch full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The job offers good benefits and compensation. The Home Office campus is great. After training, given lots of responsibility right away.

    Cons

    Mobility is based on availability only, at least in department I was in. Not too much bad to say about the company, enjoyed it there.
