    I worked at H&M full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits and paid time off. Higher pay than most retail operations.

    Cons

    Because of the nature of the job, high turnover in fellow workers. Hard to get full-time or promotions.

    Pros

    flexible hours, understanding management, great store locations that allow you to see many people, pay isn't that bad, great discount

    I worked at H&M part-time

    Pros

    great pay for part-time, awesome discounts, fun co-workers, met new people everyday.

    Cons

    there were only 2 full time positions open and a lot of part timers. You had to wait for full time to open up if you wanted it which wasn't very likely and when a supervisors position opened up, a lot of current employees wanted the job but was filled outside the company which i thought was wrong.

    Advice to Management

    hire from within! There are many people dedicated to this great company but want to be rewarded.

    Pros

    Good pay, amazing hours, they consider your other commitments and schedule you accordingly, everyone is generally helpful.

    Cons

    Not too many cons.. I had one bad experience . I was accused of dancing around the fitting rooms while we had help from another store and was rold the behavior was embarassing to management. Management felt that I was enjoying myself too much and that it wasn't fair for the guest to see me dancing while they were working hard.. I just deal with pressure differently , if I keep a smile on my face and balance myself with positive energy I can work more effectively.. & I was happy I loved working there but I did feel that I was scolded just for simply enjoying my job and not letting the stress of a crowded store get to me. I was not at all dancing I did feel the beat of a song smiled did a little clap but I never stopped working that fitting room! And it was PACKED with stock. . But... perspective...

    Advice to Management

    Continue to do everything you're doing. I left for personal issues I was having if I was ever offered another position here I would take it GLADLY! I loved everyone here, especially Ralph. This is an amazing team if you stay 100% professional and stick up for your self! Loved the experience

    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 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 have been working at H&M full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    lots of opportunity to advance if you are mobile, great benefits, generous vacation and sick leave, work life balance, fast paced! Values Driven!

    Cons

    Fast paced can sometimes be overwhelming, but challenging, retail hours if you are not a night and weekend person

    Advice to Management

    Keep on listening, continue expanding and rewarding your employees.

    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.
