I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

Interview Details 1 interview with the District Manager for an hour. Easy questions. They are just looking to see if you have the personality and looks for the company. Make sure to dress the part, and be enthusiastic about the brand. Basically if you are attractive you will get hired.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time you had a conflict with a co-worker and how you resolved it. Tell me about a time you had a difficult deadline and how you met it. Tell me what you see the Abercrombie brand as. Describe your leadership style.   Answer Question

Assistant Store Manager Interview

Assistant Store Manager
Miami, FL (US)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in March 2011.

Interview Details One main interview with District Manager. They have a set script they follow on paperwork. All are behavior-based questions with scenarios and "tell me about a time when...". Dress in jeans and clothes that resemble (or are) their brand. Be clean shaven, and wear very little makeup. They are looking for sophisticated, outgoing, and "brand positive" people.

Interview Question – Weakness   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – The only negotiation you may get is to ask for a store in a particular location if you want one within the district close to your residence. Beginning salaries are permanently set.

Assistant Store Manager Interview

Assistant Store Manager
Overland Park, KS (US)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in October 2012.

Interview Details The interview was fun, all they want to see is that you have a degree, are good looking, and can hold a fun conversation.

You will get recruited by an SM or AM more than likely and then referred to the DM for the interview. If you meet the above three requirements, mostly just the first two though you have the job.

Interview Question – They are all mostly probing questions making sure you understand diversity, customer service and that you work well with other people, none are difficult unless you've lived under a rock the past decade.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – The pay, hours, vacation... etc are non-negotiable.
