    I have been working at H&M part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Faire Bezahlung
    Einbezug von Interessierten
    Kollegiales Verhalten
    Nachhaltigkeitsphilosophie wird verstärkt

    Cons

    Zufriedenheit der Kunden und Kollegen unter einen Hut zu bringen - nicht als Kontra, sondern als Herausforderung ansehen!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ein System, welches den Mitarbeitern ermöglicht, gezielt Ordern nachzubestellen, damit das Vertrösten der Kunden und die Ungewissheit des Warennachschubs beseitigt wird.

    I worked at H&M

    Pros

    Great staff discounts
    Friendly Team and a no hierachy approach to management
    Recognition for good hard work.
    Opportunities for national and international travel

    Cons

    HR is small in Australia, it cane take a while to get some things sorted.
    Melbourne is the busiest store att the moment so sometimes they require you to stay longer-they don't ask you to, they expect you to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more staff to work in HR, otherwise the training provided builds very firm foundations and expectations of your staff which is great! Maybe have more incentives for staff to stay later if they are required to be there.
