    I have been working at Hollister Incorporated full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I have worked at previous companies and felt like I was just a number. One of many in a silo'd role performing mundane tasks. Here at Hollister you are given more opportunities to step outside of the box and work on projects in addition to your normal "work". Your opinion matters and you are treated with respect at all levels of the organization. I love it here and feel very fulfilled in my career.

    Cons

    No real cons, sometimes decisions take a bit longer than at other companies but they are thoughtful decisions. Job titles are lower than other organizations, but again - the work is very meaningful!

    Advice to Management

    Keep encouraging employees to step outside their comfort zone, but in doing that be patient if there is something new that one is learning for the first time. I haven't struggled with this but I have heard others have.

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

    Pros

    Unlike other big companies you aren’t just another employee. You are a person with a name and you have a voice. Sometime times it’s heard but it’s always encouraged to be spoken.

    Cons

    Sometimes decisions can take longer then need to be but it has gotten better over the years.

    Advice to Management

    Increase salaries in order to draw in new talent and help keep the talent we currently have.

    Pros

    Hollister Incorporate was my second job out of college. I came in very green and I have had countless opportunities to grow and develop professionally. It has been incredible to be able to work with so many different people and departments to increase my overall knowledge of the company. I look forward to seeing what is next!

    It has been slow to change but they have been working to improve on that.

    I worked at Hollister Incorporated full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Some employees are good to work with

    Cons

    The problem with the company is there is no oversight for rogue employees. HR pretends they don't exist and looks the other way. There is no way to rectify outright lies, innuendos or half truths. You can have a great manager and then in a year you are stuck with someone who wants to replace your position with another position in the hopes of getting a promotion and of course HR goes along with it. And then when...

    I have been working at Hollister Incorporated full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are good. The workers are some of the hardest working people you will find.

    Cons

    Most of us are being walked all over by management. Specifically the Supervisors. The young and inexperienced Supervisors do nothing and spend most of the day chatting, laughing or gossiping within their clique.  When they aren't noticeably flirting with each other, you will find them texting or on their cell phones, shopping or on facebook. Nobody holds them accountable. They are disrespectful and unprofessional....

    Advice to Management

    Hire people who are qualified and care about the little people. Monitor Supervisors behavior and encourage a more professional atmosphere. Supes should work as hard as us.
