    Former Employee - Sales Associate in Vancouver, BC (Canada)

    I worked at H&M full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    open door policy/flat management system within stores allows for staff to work together to meet daily sales targets.

    the opportunities to change focus areas make for a really creative atmosphere. the main sales area usually has a focus but often sells out quickly enough for staff to style these areas/mannequins themselves.

    many opportunities for quick advancement!

    great clothes to wear and be inspired by, especially during designer collaborations.

    lots of celebrity shoppers

    Cons

    high turnover rate! likely due to how daunting it is to get a complaint to be taken seriously.

    stressful atmosphere - the lineups are endless and staff are often left to deal with them alone.

    low pay for a lot of work - the expectations of staff when hours are cut or when staff is low is unreasonable. this extends to the expectations of both supervisors and staff members at large.

    frequently understaffed - this company wants to expand, but the work atmosphere is neglected in the rat race.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Considering how many people work within each store, the HR team should expand beyond one regional representative. Job dissatisfaction will likely be better assessed with this investment.
