H&M – Why Work For Us?


We are constantly growing, so we’re always on the lookout for talent. Join us in an inspiring, fast-paced and ever-changing environment where your career possibilities are endless.

We believe in our people, and always encourage new ideas and initiatives. Along with training and leadership guidance, there’s no end to the potential for a successful, global career within H&M. Because a job at H&M is more than just a job – it’s the beginning of a career full of opportunity.

We think of our organization as a large (and stylish) family.

At the core of it all, our approach is shaped by a strong respect for each individual. This applies to every aspect of the employment – from fair wages, working hours and freedom of association, to equal opportunities for growth and development within the company. Every H&M employee in the world receives fair employment, even in countries whose laws and regulations fall short of our own standards.

We see diversity and inclusion as central to our organization. This means that we stand up against discrimination and harassment wherever we operate.

At H&M, we endorse the “open door principle,” which gives every employee the right to discuss issues that matter to them directly with their leaders. Our employees also have the right to collective bargaining. We constantly strive for good relations with employees as well as employee associations and trade unions.

H&M is an equal opportunity employer that does not tolerate discrimination in the workplace.

Our values reflect the heart and soul of H&M. They define what it takes to work here and how we do things. When we interact with colleagues and customers around the world, our values ensure that we don’t lose sight of what we really stand for.

Individually, these values can seem like common sense, but together they form an inclusive culture that is unique and different from other companies.

STRAIGHTFORWARD AND OPEN-MINDED
ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT

Looking good should do good too. That’s what H&M Conscious is all about – it’s our promise to bring you more fashion choices that are good for people, the planet and your wallet.

We believe in a better fashion future. H&M Conscious is our plan for making this future come true.

“At H&M, we have set ourselves the challenge of ultimately making fashion sustainable and sustainability fashionable. We want to help people express their personality and feel proud of what they wear. I’m very excited to see the progress we’ve made so far and how this will help us to make you an even better offer – and create a more sustainable fashion future,” says Karl-Johan Persson, CEO.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at H&M.

    Interview

    Applied online and got a call a few hours later asking to chat over the phone. Went through a 10-15 minute phone screening where they asked me about my availability and my resume then got invited to an in-person interview the next day. At the in-person interview I met 2 managers and they asked me pretty basic retail questions. The managers were really chill and made me feel super comfortable. After they interviewed me, they left the room to deliberate for a few minutes and came back to offer me the job and have me fill out paperwork.
