    Pros

    The staff is great and pays more than minimum wage so that's a plus. They also give bonuses if your store makes over a certain amount

    Cons

    Management is very unorganized sometimes so it makes it hard on staff to do their jobs. Also the hours are irregular

    I have been working at H&M full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Opportunities to travel & move up, always learning, & you meet some awesome people. Atmosphere is very diverse, which I love.

    Cons

    You have to kiss up & be fake to get ahead. Management sucks. They suck at hiring people & you'll have to pick up others' slack. Feels like you're in high school all over again.

    Advice to Management

    People work for people. Treat your staff like human beings, not slaves or dollar signs.

    Pros

    Everyone makes you feel welcome here. No one pressures you to do something you absolutely don't want to do, and management is amazing

    Cons

    I wish the grace period for lateness was 5 minutes instead of 3. This may not be the case for everyone but my training did not go so well

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

    Pros

    My colleagues help hold me down! Without a good team I would've quit!

    Cons

    This place is not a great place to work. To much product in my home store and the stores that I've supported. They (the district, regional, and country teams) make store managers cut hours to the bare bones because overall we're not performing well as a company with sales. So minimal, floor coverage, to much product, and no hours to train new hires properly equals poorly maintained stores and stressed out employees. Also we continue to open stores! Stop!!! The stores that are open can't handle the unrealistic expectations! Where is the support? They demand that we live the H&M values but they do NOT! I used to love what I do.... But not so much anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Live the h&m values before you criticize, critique and shame store teams on unrealistic expectations. Also cut back on the amount of product in your stores. We are not being set up for success! This is comparable to slave labor.

    Corporate needs a reality check
