Manager in Training (MIT)

The Manager in Training (MIT) program is a ten week program that immerses a manager in all aspects of running a multi-million dollar business for Abercrombie & Fitch. Training takes place in our store locations. Each week the program focuses on a different aspect of running the business. The program trains the MIT on the necessary principles of management including creating the best in-store experience, recruiting, diversity, human resources, store operations, and visual merchandising. The program is structured and provides the MIT with daily and weekly feedback from the Store Manager and District Manager. The MIT completes daily readings and exercises, experiences and learns through on-the-job training, and completes weekly assessments. Successful completion of MIT training program will lead to promotion into the Assistant Manager role.

Successful completion of this program is the first step for leadership. At Abercrombie & Fitch, we strongly advocate a philosophy of promotion from within. All of our District Managers, Regional Managers, Directors - even the Senior Vice President of Stores - have gone through the MIT program. With the growth of the company internationally, career opportunities for an MIT have never been better.

We are seeking existing graduates as well as final year students who will be graduating this summer. We recruit all year round so candidates are not limited to seasonal intakes. The salary is very competitive and it is disclosed during interview in addition to the quarterly incentive program for which Assistant Managers are eligible.
