Great People! Close minded company

Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee)
Toronto, ON

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

ProsYou get to work with a lot of great, fun, young, and energetic people. The job is quite easy and a great place to start out of university for work experience.

ConsMicro-Managed. Want their managers to follow strict rules and not think even if it would help the customer. Home office is constantly "coming for a visit." Managers have to work extremely hard to make sure everything in the store is up to standard and half the time home office doesn't even come.

Advice to Senior ManagementLet your managers use their brains. Hire people based on qualifications not just looks.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Petty immature managers, Job for students who don't mind getting exploited

Sales Associate (Former Employee)
Toronto, ON

I worked at Abercrombie & Fitch part-time for less than a year

Pros-No pros working here at all.

Cons-Min' wage
-coercive policy and management
-Managers; whom are often 21-25 years of age act like high school students. They engage and start petty drama. Total lack of professionalism
-No growth possibilities, many managers also end up quitting after head offices fail to keep promotion promises
-Managers use profanity to intimidate associates who don't know their rights
-Managers, especially the females are too emotional and penalize you by reducing you weekly hours or making you do the less favorable tasks when you voice your concerns
- The managers are incompetent and blame the associates for their lack of proper management procedures
- The Eaton centre store is filled with ignorant managers who influence their associates into discriminating against certain races and make rude comments about them
- I can go on but to sum it, MANAGEMENT is HORRIBLE stay clear!

TRASH company.

Advice to Senior Management-GROW UP! Though this might not be the career path you foresaw and will probably not be advancing higher than managerial position with this company, you need to learn to manage your emotions. Your personal life issues should not spillover into your work.

-You are not doing anything special. You work a deskilled job which any high school student can do with training.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good PT Job

Model (Current Employee)

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

ProsGreat if you're a student, as you can literally pick up only the hours you want

ConsManagement doesn't really care much for their people as so many quit/get fired
Don't expect much pay-wise, but the flexibility with hours is worth it I think
Not at all a good job if you're always availiable
Shallow, must be good looking to work there

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
