    I have been working at H&M part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Everyone works at an even level including management. Can easily snatch up open shifts and extra hours if wanted. Recognition for good work.

    Cons

    Scheduled normally for 15/ week for someone with open availability, but asked to come early or stay longer with short notice

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    . A more solid filled out schedule instead of asking a couple hours in advance to fill shifts would be nice.

    Pros

    Upward movement in the company in an ever so fast expanding job. Lots to do and learn. Benefits are great

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show appreciation to and award staff, they are the backbone and not shown gratefulness often.
