The Manager in Training program is a blended learning program focused on immersing the trainee in all aspects of managing a multi-million dollar business for Abercrombie & Fitch. Training is paid and lasts 8-10 weeks takes place in all of our domestic and international store locations.

Each week of training focuses on a different aspect of running the business. Every trainee will learn about different principles of management, including store operations, recruiting, diversity, creating the best in-store experience, human resources, stockroom systems and visual merchandising. In addition to meeting other associates, the trainee will also interact daily with the Store Manager and at least weekly with the District Manager. The Store Manager and the District Manager will facilitate coaching sessions as well as conduct weekly assessments and performance evaluations. The trainee must successfully complete the training program to be moved into an Assistant Manager role.
