    I have been working at H&M full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    * Accepting corporate culture
    * Fun merchandize to work with
    * It's easy to get promoted if you're good. (I got promoted twice within 2 years and made more money then most people in my position)
    * Great insurance, paid birthday off.

    Cons

    * STRESS STRESS STRESS. High Stress level at H&M
    * Constant crunch for using less hours, which results in more stress for everyone because it's impossible to get the workload done in the amount of hours your District Controller will tell you you can use
    * The bonus used to be great, but not anymore. There's 3 really high requirements that you can't really effect, and barely anyone is meeting them
    * You only get 1 weekend a month off
    * No work/life balance
    * H&M promotes people who put in their 2 weeks notice because they don't want to get hit with turnover. This results in incompetent people being promoted

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe Karl-Johan Persson needs to not be so greedy and start rewarding the people who do the actual work, in the store again. An incentive is not an incentive if there's no possibility for your staff to make it.
