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

    Pros

    Great team members(well at least my store), great pay, very flexible scheduling, the ability to learn more about retailing because unlike most stores you're not just stuck in one position for an entire shift.

    Cons

    The lack of growth opportunities but only when there aren't many stores in your area and people aren't leaving sup/mgr positions because they love H&M so much but if your willing to relocate the opportunities are endless and I plan on doing just that. The lack of hours but that's with any part time position in retail. And last but not least some of customers. Honestly, customers that trash the store and customers that come in with negative attitudes and refuse to be satisfied with anything are the only real cons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    mmmmmmmmmm... None, All my managers are the best.

    I worked at H&M part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice pay (higher than most retail stores starting off)
    They have nice clothes at reasonable prices.
    Always have sale items at our stores.
    Has a section for women, men, kids, and maternity. All fashionable clothing
    Great perks when they collar with designers. Recently got an Alexander Wang string bag for free.
    Great Holiday gifts.

    Cons

    Just like any retail. You get unusual rude customers. Hours - gotta work holidays and stuff but that's not because of H&M. Although it kind of sucked working on New Year's Eve because we didn't close the store until 10pm. I wish we were able to close earlier at like 6pm.

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

    Pros

    -Higher pay than most retail companies.
    - You can "bonus" each month, which means you get up to a dollar extra on your paycheck for every hour you worked the last month.
    - They are very flexible with your schedule, something important for a full time student.
    - You can fully express your individual style as long as you do it in a professional sense (ie no super short dresses)

    Cons

    -Some days you have to stay up to an hour later than scheduled to complete the days's work
    - It is very fast paced and not for an inexperienced worker.
