    Pros

    Hollister has a very positive and live environment. Employee's with great attitudes assist customers in a timely manner.

    Cons

    There are many times in which the store becomes very crowded and busy. Employee's must be able to work under hectic conditions while remaining calm and helpful.

    Decent part time job, but not a lot of growth opportunities.

    I worked at Hollister Co. (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible with my student hours.
    Easy job tasks and easy-going environment.
    Employee discount on items was great (especially on current month's 'trends'.)

    Cons

    Not a lot of growth for part-time employees. I worked as an impact team member (stock) and worked for the company a total of about 3 years. I not only performed all the same functions of an impact team lead, but often covered the team lead's shift at the second store I worked for. However, they would not work with me on a higher salary and never promoted me, which was disappointing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show your part-time employees that they matter to you! Great work should be rewarded and I rarely saw that happen.

    Current Employee - Full Time Stock in Dallas, TX

    I have been working at Hollister Co. full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Paid time off/sick days
    Regular schedule- same days/times every week, weekends off
    Eligible for health insurance, other benefits
    30% employee discount, ten items 50% every season (4x a year)
    Very clear expectations, directions
    Company is big on promoting from within, basically guarantees it after certain amount of time if you do well

    Cons

    Can't be promoted to assistant manager without a bachelor's degree
    Full-time stock is expected to act as manager when need be, but isn't paid the same or guaranteed as many hours, depends on store how often this happens
    Part-time associates don't have any real mobility, only one part time employee per store gets a raise each year, pays them minimum wage
    A lot of turnover (mostly hires high schoolers)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Guarantee raises for long term employees, might reduce turn over

    Pros

    Great environment to work at , the people is very nice and the managers are very approachable. The schedules are very flexible. It is a great place to work at if you want something for a part-time job. I would recommend this for High School students that are willing to work with people of their same age.

    Cons

    Sometimes the job gets a little bit repetitive. You are listening to the same songs all the time, and you might get bored.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you are always encouraging the workers.
