Job interviews are out; auditions are in. As all you need in order to work at A&F is to look like a model, there isn’t really any point in doing job interviews.
Male employees have to audition as if it’s a modeling or an acting gig. Managers at A&F are basically like casting directors who have to decide who has the right look for the role.
Abercrombie & Fitch is about everything but comfort. One ex-employee tells that they were instructed to only wear sandals and tight jeans.
This meant having to deal with uncomfortable side effects that might change their lives forever. Not even the CEO could escape this bizarre rule.
Abercrombie & Fitch doesn’t even try to act as if they want to be inclusive. They only carry up to a size large, and even their large isn't actually that large.
This means that people of a larger size can't think of working there, or even entering the store, as they'd be disappointed, which is a shame.
You'd think a job in a clothing store would be simple and casual. Well, think again, if you get in, you have to memorize a script. Luckily, it's only three words long, but don't you ever go off-script.
All A&F employees basically have to be good-looking robots, otherwise, they'll be fired. They also have a specific line for when they suspect someone is trying to steal goods.
No Big Deal
A clothing store's aim is to sell as many clothes as possible, right? Well, not exactly. Apparently, it is more important for Abercrombie & Fitch to maintain the brand's image than to actually carry larger sizes.
Any size that is a bit bigger than skinny is stored far far away so that no one would ever be able to reach it or try it on.
