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

    Pros

    Great place to work, Fit in very well with my busy college schedule

    Cons

    You could be fired at the drop of a hat if you were late. Although I was not fired they have a no forgiveness policy if you are more than a second late. Made getting to work on time very stressful for some people. Some of the people at my particular store also complained a lot which was a drag to be around. But I realize this may just be the particular group of people that I worked with.

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to be a "green company" don't have every piece of clothing you have shipped to the store sent in its own plastic bag that is then thrown away...SO BAD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT!

    I worked at H&M full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Carrier opportunities, benefits, people. There are plenty of examples in the company when people start from part time sales assistant and in some years they a taking top management position.

    Cons

    Hard to start, you need to work hard and very fast in the store, some nights shifts and early mornings, we stared at 7 am

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

    Pros

    Great co-workers, Flexible schedule/hours, lots of room to learn and grow for a retail company. Pay is better than most retail jobs that aren't commission.

    Cons

    Often hectic, can be overwhelming at times and feel a lot of pressure to work fast not smart. Gets messy and customers aren't always fun.

    Advice to Management

    There are never enough people working on the floor during peak hours/season. fight for more hours to schedule people, the team works better when it feels supported and actually more than one person. Also practice what you preach.

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

    Pros

    -Great training
    -pay rate is good for retail position
    -Flexible hours
    -employee discounts
    -opportunity to grow within the company
    -I love my store manager

    Cons

    I don't have many cons. I would say that there should be more full time positions available. At my store there are only 4 full time positions and 15+ part-time. So we don't get guaranteed hours as the full timers.

    Advice to Management

    Supervisors/DM's Don't abuse your "power" by belittling others
