Favoritism is very high, but otherwise enjoyable.

I have been working at Hollister Co. part-time for more than a year

Pros

Fun co-workers.
Great management.
Always moving around.
Flexible schedule and you may have a coworker cover if you can't work a shift.
Cute clothes and perfectly fitted jeans.
Great hours during Back-to-School and the holiday season.

Cons

Rude customers.
Favoritism by managers.
Haven't been given a raise in the year I've worked.
Discount is nice only with AAA's when you get 50% off a list of items (2 tops, usually white lace tank and navy cardigan; 1 bottom which are dark wash skinny jeans). Normal discount is 20%, only for full price. Everything else that is on sale/clearance is the price it is.
Fluctuating hours.
Turnabout is very high, people get recruited every day ONLY if you look good.
Music does get annoying since it repeats every 45 minutes and you have to hear it for 2 months.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It would be nice to get more hours if you're a hard worker even during less busy seasons.
