    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Hollister Incorporated full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Some employees are ok.

    Cons

    They talk about diversity but you cannot see that in the promotions that are given within the company. Focused only in promoting White population. Very less care is given to people from different backgrounds even if they are very good at their job. Management encourages people who talk a lot than people who do the actual job. If you are very good in talking you will survive. IF not you will be no one. You will be stuck with less knowledge people making incorrect decisions.

    Hollister Incorporated Response

    December 3, 2019Vice President, Human Resources

    Thank you for sharing your candid feedback. I am sorry you’ve had a negative experience and feel that opportunities go disproportionately to one group of Associates. We work diligently to honor the dignity inherent to everyone and provide equal employment opportunities regardless of age, race, color, nationality, citizenship status, national origin, ethnicity, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, disability, genetics, veteran status or any other protected characteristic. Perhaps the best example of this is that, as you may know, our CEO is an Indian-American. We are committed to creating an environment where all of our Associates, customers, community partners, and suppliers are included, treated with respect, and working together to fulfill the Hollister Mission. I encourage you to speak with your manager, HR Business Partner or reach out to me directly, if you would like to discuss your concerns in more detail.
