    Pros

    Tons of growth opportunities if you're willing to put in hard work. Awesome benefits, awesome paid time off/vacation.

    Cons

    Tedious work some days, rapid growth sometimes equals unorganized environment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep promoting from within company.

    Pros

    Any employee of h&m is treated as a valued asset of the company. It doesn't matter what level you are or how long you've been with the company. Everyone is treated like a human being.

    Cons

    Nights and weekends, but that come's with any retail job.

    Pros

    For the individual: Crazy amount of benefits and incentives that other jobs can't even afford to give their employees, let alone their part-time employees. This includes medical insurance, dental insurance, vision insurance, pet insurance, life insurance, discounts for sporting events/concerts/movie tickets/Verizon bill along with the store's own 25% discount. Team work is a key value, meaning you can be yourself, bullying isn't an issue, you can always seek out help, etc. For the world: They make some items out of recycled materials, are known for their charity work, etc.

    Cons

    I personally enjoy that it is fast-paced because you're never bored and the day goes by quickly but if you don't feel comfortable in that type of environment, then I guess it can be seen as a con.

    Advice to Management

    I really like the company H&M is today - I would just tell management to keep going the way they are right now.
