    Pros

    Tons of growth opportunities if you're willing to put in hard work. Awesome benefits, awesome paid time off/vacation.

    Cons

    Tedious work some days, rapid growth sometimes equals unorganized environment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep promoting from within company.

    Pros

    Any employee of h&m is treated as a valued asset of the company. It doesn't matter what level you are or how long you've been with the company. Everyone is treated like a human being.

    Cons

    Nights and weekends, but that come's with any retail job.

    Pros

    The company has great benefits. They value individuality and equality throughout all levels of the company. There is a lot of room for growth.

    Cons

    The work load is on the heavy side. Unfortunately, the salary doesn't compensate for the work load.

    Pros

    People are great. Pay is good for while in school.Plenty of growth opportunity, even from store to corporate. Good company values.Benefits.

    Cons

    Hours are a bit hectic, it's difficult to get a set schedule. Too many managers that sit in back of house and don't tend to the floor. Poor scheduling resulting in light coverage and messy stores.

    Advice to Management

    Pay better attention to the scheduling and coverage as the customer experience is the most important thing. Happier staff and a cleaner store will create a better overall experience and keep people coming back.

    Pros

    For the individual: Crazy amount of benefits and incentives that other jobs can't even afford to give their employees, let alone their part-time employees. This includes medical insurance, dental insurance, vision insurance, pet insurance, life insurance, discounts for sporting events/concerts/movie tickets/Verizon bill along with the store's own 25% discount. Team work is a key value, meaning you can be yourself, bullying isn't an issue, you can always seek out help, etc. For the world: They make some items out of recycled materials, are known for their charity work, etc.

    Cons

    I personally enjoy that it is fast-paced because you're never bored and the day goes by quickly but if you don't feel comfortable in that type of environment, then I guess it can be seen as a con.

    Advice to Management

    I really like the company H&M is today - I would just tell management to keep going the way they are right now.
