Tell us about why you chose to work for Abercrombie & Fitch? When you were doing your own career search, what appealed to you about A&F?

People are attracted to the unique and authentic culture of Abercrombie and Fitch. When candidates hear about the collaborative and welcoming environment we work in, they quickly understand how inclusive our teams are and how we all come together as a group. Our mentality as a culture defines not only the teams here at Home Office, but the customer and their experience as well.

One notable difference about Abercrombie and Fitch in my first interaction with the company was the approachability of the associates at the career fair. From that initial interaction all the way through to the final steps of my candidacy, it always felt more like a conversation rather than an interview. While I knew I was only a potential candidate, it still felt like the associates wanted to get to know me as person rather than just fire away questions from a guide.

What is unique about working for Abercrombie & Fitch? Tell us about the culture around the workplace.

Besides the welcoming nature of our teams across campus, we focus a lot on proactivity and forward thinking. In an industry like retail, it’s important that we maintain an attitude of adventure and resiliency! At the heart of it all, we truly believe in authenticity and integrity in everything we do and we believe that our team members and customers are inherently good people.

Our culture is actually woven directly in to our environment – the 500-acre woodland campus (peppered with scooters!), open desk spaces and meeting rooms, and even actual fireplaces to gather around make it an incredible space to innovate.
