I have been working at H&M part-time for more than a year

Pros

10.39 starting salary as a part time sales associate! the company really shows that they care about their employees and humanitarian efforts. You don't really have to sell anything because the clothes sell themselves. you just have to be a fast worker.

Cons

Most managers are really cool however you will run into some crazy or douchey ones every so often. The weekends are rough in terms of closing and cleaning the store. It can get pretty stressful working in a packed store sometimes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I wish they had health benefits for part timers too and not just full timers.

    I worked at H&M full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    High pay, bonuses, discount on merchandise, fast paced, options for career advancement, depending on your district lots of district team support, continual training, the staff

    Cons

    H&M seems to be focusing on doing more with less (less floor coverage, less hours, less time to accomplish tasks) which puts a lot on the shoulders of store management. There wasn't a day I came home that I wasn't almost completely exhausted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that running on a razor's edge of efficiency is going to backfire. Eventually some idea or task isn't going to be accomplished and since there's little to no buffer (with hours, too many projects, etc) things will snowball and the seasoned, competent employees will head for greener pasture.

    The pay isn't worth the discount...or the stress...

    I worked at H&M full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    H&M has a great employee discount.
    If you show some initiative, they might promote you, but who knows how long that will take.
    No real dress code.
    Decent starting pay.

    Cons

    Favoritism on the part of management (i.e. some employees are given more time to work on marketing their departments than others).
    Managers will throw you under the bus if they didn't give you enough time to get your department ready before a district team walk through.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give full-time employees a majority of their shift to work in their department...not on the register or in the fitting rooms. That's what part-timers are for. Provide proper training to new hires instead of letting them fend for themselves. Your "non-rehire" policy is a joke, especially when your treatment of employees is the reason they quit in the first place.
