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

Pros

Perks: Growing opportunities, & "appreciation" of employees by giving incentives.

Cons

Favortism-- I knew a few people that I work with who get more opportunity & attention because they are favored over others ("only the great ones go far"), Managers always use the excuse of "I don't have time to teach you" when you want more skills, People seem fake & I'm not saying that there aren't a few good people because there is but it feels like high school there, I feel like no one really cares about me & that I'm just the person that works there.

Advice to Management

Listen to your Sale Advisors, Stop the favortism, Stop being biased because others are like better.

    I have been working at H&M full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You can dress your style and personality. You are responsible for your own development. The sky is the limit. There are no restrictions on how long you have to be in a position to get promoted.
    Travel around the US and beyond for development training, expansion team opportunities and a feeling that H&M really is one big family.

    Cons

    There is no set schedule. Your work hours can change anytime.

    Advice to Management

    Stop keeping everything a secret when it comes to where people and moving and why. It creates rumors between the stores. It is very upsetting to those of us who are put somewhere until question mark. How unsettling in life to not even be sure where you will work in a month. It is rude and aggravating.
