Sales Associate (Former Employee), Towson, MD – February 25, 2014
A typical day was fast pace and full of excitement. Working here, I've learned to work with a close team, also I learned how to work with people more closely. Management at this job was Satisfactory, they made sure the job was done at all costs. My Co-workers were friendly and hard working, which made the job easier on my behalf. The hardest part of – more... this job would have to be the constant running around, which ironically makes it the best part of this job, because I think its good for one to be constantly active. – less
Sales (Former Employee), Portland, OR – February 14, 2014
Pros: great coworkers, decent pay, good bonuses (if your store does well enough to get them)
Cons: not enough hours, too many tasks at once, frustrated/angry management
H&M tries very hard to accomplish many tasks with very few people and few hours. This leads to poor overall morale and frustrated employees. Management has poor communication and often expects you to do too many things at one time. They focus more on getting things done than customer service.
Sales (Former Employee), Bergen Gallery in Bergen, Norway – February 10, 2014
Pros: good management
I managed and directed all sales staff who worked under me in the ladies' clothing department. I consistently surpassed all sales expectations assigned to me by the management team of H&M. I trained and created marketing strategies to ensure weekly sales quotas would be reached and prepare future sales forecasts for H&M management. The most challenging – more... aspect of working here was the amount of inventory and corresponding labor to upkeep the store. Learning to prioritize and manage time well was key to enjoying work here. The best part of this position was receiving the opportunity to learn something new and useful every single day at work. – less
H&M is a challenging and stimulating work environment that can also be a really fun place to work
Cashier (Current Employee), Portland, OR – February 10, 2014
Pros: 401k plan for part timers
I love my coworkers. Most of them are some of my closest friends. I have learned a lot about teaching people how to do the job right, and being an encouraging person to work around. The job can be very challenging but the pay and benefits definitely make up for the hard work. My favorite part of the job is cleaning the store when the customers have – more... left. The Lloyd center H&M has a lot of pride towards the look of our store. – less

love it there ! My Store manager and co-workers are great . everyone gets along. The atmosphere is well balanced, I assist customers upon request since that's how HM works but I will take the initiative to help a shopper if they look confused or lost.
Visual Manager 2007-2009 (Former Employee), San Francisco, CA – February 2, 2014
Worked at a manager and a visual manager, supervised store routines and set the visual look of the store. Learned to work at a very fast pace while still providing high quality work. Worked as a team player in a supportive management team.
Store Advisor (Current Employee), Portland OR – January 28, 2014
Running the new garments, merchandising effectively, ringing people up in a fast pace manner, executing loss prevention strategies in fitting room.
I learned how to do everything the most efficient way possible. Management has a lot to deal with, communication was not always the greatest. Team players are a huge in this kind of work environment, which – more... is the most enjoyable part. – less
