    Pros

    Great discount
    My store are quite flexible with hours at short notice - i.e if you need to take a personal day
    Being able to wear your own clothes even if they were not purchased from H&M

    Cons

    Management are unprofessional and forgetful, broken promises, rota changes literally at last minute, resulting in staff turning up to work when they have given us 'a day off' and not notified us. Favoritism, more experienced members of staff given much more tasks as the 'easy option' and the new members of staff are left untrained and frustrated.

    Advice to Management

    Remember and appreciate your other employees, not just the favourites. Take time to include new members of staff, and there wouldn't be such a high turnover.

    Pros

    You can grow very quickly if you are motivated to do so. They are very good at promoting from within.

    Cons

    Standard retail hours - no telling how late you will be there. Schedule can be extremely varied, but what can I say, I'm tired of retail.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice if there were enough managers to staff all the stores so we could use our vacation time.
