My hours were always flexible and you can sign up online for what days and times work best for you.
Call in hours were the worst. You would have to call in an hour before your shift and see if they needed extra people for that day. I hated not knowing if I was working or not.

The people you work with are usually really fun and lively. The discount you get on clothes is a plus and it's very easy to be a part time worker because they are flexible on hours
You are paid minimum wage which is kind of a downer but for the work load, the pay is reasonable. There also doesn't seem to be much opportunity for career growth.

You were given a schedule that fit your needs as a college student. Managers were very flexible with your hours and only scheduled you when you were available.
There was no automatic raise system. People could work there for years and years and never see a raise unless they changed positions.

Your Co workers are really cool and your hours are incredibly flexible
There's no room for growth unless you have a Bachelor's degree and they wont give you more than 20 hours a week usually.

The hours are very flexible as it is easy to work around a second job or school.
Minimum wage. Not many hours at all. Some of the managers are rude and don't care about the employees at all. Very corporate, all about the dollar, not the workers.

Flexible hours but you have to go through weeks of shadowing other people's schedule. meaning they are going to set up a schedule for you but you can only work a certain days, the rest is call if they need you.
Employee attitude are just horrible and stuck up. I tried very hard to communicate with my co-workers but they acted very distant in a very obvious way. I wouldn't say this is a direct discrimination, however, it is understandable that minority like me was not welcoming there as a worker.

-The hours are pretty flexible because they usually have a good amount of employees working at each store. I worked at three different Hollisters and one Abercrombie (I moved a lot). -The discounts were pretty good, could be better but I still consider them a pro. -If you are in high school or in your early years of college, you'll be working with a lot of people your age. (There really isn't much range when it comes to age)
-Not really any growth opportunity. When I worked there you had to be in your last semester of college in order to be a manager in training, regardless of how long you worked there. (They may have changed this by now) -Managers were constantly quitting. Employees too. So there was little to no consistency when it came to staff. -Gets repetitive and boring after awhile, like most retail jobs that you've worked for a long period of time

It's a pretty easy job since you're doing the same things every day. Hours are really flexible so you can take any days off are long as you give them a heads notice. If you show that you are a hard worker starting off, you'll get a lot of hours.
It's a lot of work that they give you with tight deadlines. They'll hire anyone so people you work with will sometimes not be the best workers and you'll have to finish the work they didn't get to.

The good thing about Hco. is the fact that hours are flexible and you get to choose when you work. Pay is basic and every store is different but from my experience, it is an enjoyable job where you learn sales techniques and how business works. People who you may work with can be seen as friends and generally, the workforce is young and vibrant. Overall, it's a great uni job with fantastic graduate opportunities if you're looking into retail management.
Sometimes there aren't any hours and this could mean you not getting scheduled for a while. Furthermore, sometimes the drive to approach customers can be too direct and some people may not feel comfortable with that.

Really flexible hours and easy to get your shift taken
Managers come and go so it's hard to get close to a manager and then have them leave, then another manager come in and run things completely differently.
