What employees say

Employees like

Only being able to help customers chose some great clothing.
I worked in the 5th Ave store in NYC, and during my shift I was confined to my floor and would get yelled at for leaving it. The smell of the perfume was nauseating and listening to the same 5 songs on blast was torture. Working inn flip flops, which were provided by the company and could only be replaced with black converses, were a safety hazard and I would constantly fall or trip. Employees are treated like they work ...
I knew all my employees on a personal level— I could leverage their strengths and encourage their work according to those strengths. I also knew their weaknesses and could partner them with other employees who could help them with those weaknesses or I could personally mentor them. I also had a wonderful management team that was communicative and one in our desire to shoot for growth and betterment.
Once I graduated with my Bachelors degree I was quickly getting promotions. I worked for the company way over 10 years. The company transferred me to two different states to take over stores as a Store Manager.
I have met my best friends through the company and these people have similar interests as me. I have learned about different cultures because the workplace is diverse. The managers take good care of their employees.

Employees don't like

The time you spend away from family on major holidays/times of the year. Any holiday or season that centers around time off from school/work, usually means you will be working. It’s not ideal for those who have families and need holidays off. There’s no way around it, that’s most service jobs.
I disapprove with some of the instability. I understand that they must continue to find methods to continue to grow business, but the frequently have business and policy changes throughout the year that does not make it beneficial for all associates to keep up to date with changes.
Over night shifts. Making people feel guilty for not working off the clock - you can’t go over 40 hours so you’d have to work off the clock a lot to finish projects like sales floor updates.
I disapprove of the difficulty inbbeing able to be promoted from within or to be able to rise in pay or experience. I feel most management is over worked.
The only thing I would disapprove of was the tight restrictions on what people could wear to work but they have gotten a lot more lax over the years from when I worked there.

Suggestions for improvement

They need to hire Americans and people who are not against this country's culture or values.
Older more experienced management, hire more cultured people into the workplace rather than a typical Caucasian person, better relationships among employees so there are no clique mentalities.
Incorporating better pay. It would allow more people to fill open positions. Not only pay but the room for growth. They need to lower the requirement for the management position.
I would give way more opportunities for the store’s team to move to home office based on their education and experience level with the company
pay us more money... granted, I say that about every company, but it's true, I would have no problem at all getting paid even more money

Best and worst factors

Best rated: Gender Equality


The best rated factor of Abercrombie & Fitch is Gender Equality with 4.0 points (based on 5 reviews).

yea but it was the women that were bullying the males.
I'm being paid the same as others
Abercrombie treats all genders with equality. But I feel as if the look policy is more strict for females ( no nail polish, no heavy make up, natural hair, no jewelry)
Everyone was over worked and paid very little

Worst rated: Overall compensation for your work


The worst rated factor of Abercrombie & Fitch is Overall compensation for your work with 3.1 points (based on 3 reviews).

The compensation is low compared to other companies.
As an associate is pretty equal like most jobs. Basic work responsibilities get paid minimum wage. Which in my state it was 10.00 per hour, we got Time & a half on Sunday's and also every holiday. But the company pays minimum wage for associates. Managers are salaried. We do get awesome discounts. 30% off anything, then every season we get 50% off of 10 items

Career Development

Career Development rating


Career Development is rated with an average of 3.5 points (based on 3 reviews).

my employer has empathy. and that is enough for me
I rate this a 3/5 because you need a bachelors degree to move up your position from an associate to a manager. I feel as if you shouldn't need a degree to manage an Abercrombie. But the good thing is that they ask you if you'll be receiving a degree soon so that you can become a manager in the future. You get spoken to as well about what is your next step & if your seeking long-term with the ...
Great opportunity for career development.
