I applied through a kiosk at the store that I wanted to work in. I was interviewed by the manager on the spot. The manager and the rest of the people working there were really friendly and kind. She didn't have much to ask me since my resume was pretty concise.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    My interview process was terrible! I was called to meet the manager in store, but wasn't told if it was a formal interview. I had prepared myself for an interview, showed up at 8:00 AM, only to have her read out the job description for me. She said I was perfect for the job, and they would call me THAT night to set up a formal interview. Two weeks later, I called back, explained that if they didn't think I was right for the position, I wouldn't take it personally. She reassured me that I WAS right for the position, and that they were very busy and would call me THE DAY after. It's been 5 months.. still waiting..

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

    Interview Details

    I was about to graduate college and had been recruited by a friend. I agreed to an interview, it was all set up through texting my friend who was a store manager at the time. I was scheduled to meet with the District Manager and was told to wear casual clothes similar to what A&F sells (do not go to an interview for this company in business attire). I wore minimal makeup but the DM commented on my makeup when we were talking about the look policy during the interview. The interview was pretty casual, we sat on a bench in the middle of the mall and was about 30 minutes.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Then received an email for a formal interview.
    Dress with preferably A&F clothing, but if you do not have anything from the store something similar to A&F would suffice.

    The district manager told me:
    -the interview is really just a process of getting to know me
    -I can relax and because it was a casual interview and open-ended, & I can take my time answering questions.

    The interview questions were all standard questions that A&F provides (scripted), mostly about leadership. I understood that the interview was also supposed to be "casual", but it was not professional. For the most part the district manager was rude/uninterested in answers--yawning a lot, playing with seat & pen, having a chat with colleagues, etc.

    Very superficial environment.

    Store managers were professional. Recruiters were semi-professional. District manager was unprofessional.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

    Interview Details

    I had heard about the MIT program from my school's website so I went in store and applied. The store manager was there and she was very friendly and assisted me with the application. Since I had not yet graduated she informed me to come back when I graduated, and the process will start.

    I came back 28 days later, after my graduation, informed her that I had graduated and she told me that her District Manager (DM) would be in Tuesday and too come back then (It was Saturday when I went in). Following her orders, I came back 10 minutes before the scheduled time, only to find that the DM was busy, but could meet with me Tomorrow. So I came back the next day, dressed well and formal casual, only to find that the DM was not there, and too come back again Saturday. I go back again on Saturday and finally had time to get an interview.

    The interview was very laid back, asking basic questions like; Leadership examples, Problems with Co-Workers, how did you handle deadlines, etc. The interview went very well, I felt as if I had "Aced" it. The DM told me that I would get a call on Monday about the next step. Currently, it is Tuesday evening and still no response.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

    Interview Details

    applied and interviewed same week, they are always looking for managers. Interview was one on one and felt like a conversation more than an interview. Dress casual! They want to get a better picture of how you would look in their clothes so it would be best to take a look at what they have in store and wear something similar to that. Mostly experience questions, describe a time when you worked really well with someone, describe a time when it was difficult to work with someone... 99% of the time will ask what your definition of diversity is and if its important in the work place. Part of their hiring criteria is to be great looking, but in a natural way so not too much make up.
