Job description:
Manager in Training Program

The Manager in Training (MIT) Program is a blended-learning, ten week
program focused on immersing a manager in all aspects involved in managing
a multi-million dollar business for Abercrombie & Fitch. Training takes
place in our domestic and international 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, stockroom systems, 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.  The MIT must successfully
complete the training program to be moved into an 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 domestically and internationally,
career opportunities for an MIT have never been better.

Also, here is a little more information about the company:
