Fun job

Store Manager (Former Employee)

I worked at Abercrombie & Fitch full-time for more than 3 years

ProsWorking with younger people, fun atmosphere, lots of promotion opportunities, A&F pays to relocate you, great entry level job to gain management experience. If you like the clothes, the discounts weren't bad. This job is what you make it- you can work hard and it will pay off, or you can slack off and probably won't get fired.

ConsMall hours suck, working weekends is not fun, the pay is the lowest compared to other management jobs at other retailers. Supervising the young associates feels like babysitting sometimes. The atmosphere is pretty laid back, and can be unprofessional sometimes. If you want to move up in the company you must be willing to relocate.

Advice to Senior ManagementWhen I left A&F they were making lots of changes in order to cut costs and save money, while also closing stores. I just hope they can turn the company around before it's too late.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
