Former Employee - Part-time Sales Advisor in Tucson, AZ

I worked at H&M part-time (less than an year)

Pros

cool store, great clothes
great pay, advancement opportunities kind of for fulltimers but NOT for part-timers if they say this in the interview ignore it because H&M doesn't really promote part-timers... at all
people always said " oh you work at h&m? lucky i love that store!!"

Cons

as a sales advisor you are required to do A LOT. stock, setting out new product (new pro) and everything is done in a VERY meticulous manner. you can get written up for the SMALLEST things and they make you work GRUELLING long shifts. i would be scheduled for 2 shifts a week both being about 10 + hours long

Advice to ManagementAdvice

don't drink the part timers like slaves/ robots, make truck more enjoyable, if you're going to talk about a raise during the interview follow through with it don't make the employee wait MONTHS before it's even DISCUSSED again

Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at H&M full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great pay for a retail chain
    Great benefits
    Amazing travel opportunities
    Somewhat easy to move up in the company
    Meeting amazing people from all over
    Nice discount
    "In the moment" coaching

    EAP (Employee Assistance Program)

    Cons

    RUMORS (I'm talking, rumors that affect your position or your promotion)
    Slight favoritism
    Store level standards decreasing each year
    Starting to get desperate in terms of hiring, quite a few people are extremely under qualified

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Store Level Management - Watch your favoritism to fellow managers/supervisors. Also, don't affect someones career negatively just because you don't like them, work and personal life should be kept apart when it comes to promoting someone

    Upper Management - Be more available to the people that work in the stores and more helpful to solving problems that are continuously brought to attention by several people

    **Stop promoting people just to "shut them up" about wanting a raise. It doesn't help ANYONE if the person is doing less work and having more responsibility**

    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
