STAY ON YOUR FEET. The employee's were great, you can really be yourself. But just expect a few rude customers. Overall, I loved the atmosphere and the people you get to meet on a daily. A ton of skills have been given to me from this job.

Customer service and sales assistance (Current Employee), Poughkeepsie, NYAugust 21, 2015
Everything depends on the district and on the location within the district that you are working in. Not every store is the same as far as management and team members is concerned

Okay place to work
Sales Advisor (Former Employee), New York, NYAugust 14, 2015
Pros: Free Lunches, Employee Discount
Cons: A lot of confusion amongst management
The most enjoyable part of your job will be your co-workers and the great relationships you will create with them. The hardest part of the job is dealing with managers who often contradict each other and do not work together to complete daily task. If you do not enjoy retail this may not be the job for you.

Overall Work Experience
Sales Associate (Former Employee), New York, NYAugust 14, 2015
Pros: Great Discount, Health Benefits for Full Time, Pension Plan, Relocation Opportunites, Company Exclusives
Cons: Shaky Management, Lost of Hours
The environment of H&M was always a good one I enjoyed working with the previous and incoming collections, assisting customers with outfit choices, and using my wonderful discounts. Where things went wrong for me personally was the neglect of certain things from management and the extensive lost of hours I commute from New Jersey so a job with hours is important to me and I didn't feel my work ethic was appreciated, but overall H&M is a pretty good company to work for.

Fun and intense workplace
Supervisor (Current Employee), 4 Times SquareAugust 12, 2015
A typical day at work can range from hectic to fun. Working in the middle of Times Square is never a walk in the park but it is fun. I come in receive any information i need to know then head to the sales floor to relieve the lead before me. I set up my associates and goals depending on the strengths and weaknesses of my team to help things run as smooth as possible. I constantly check the hourly – more... sales and set goals and make changes as needed. Then i'll set clearly goals and time frames for each team member to improve efficiency for themselves and the entire team. I've learned a lot with this company but mostly how to improve efficiency, communication and coach my team. The hardest part of my job is dealing with co-workers sometimes. There are always going to be certain co-workers who are difficult and as a supervisor you need to stay professional and reasonable at all times. There are times you may be upset or feel disrespected but you have to keep your composer. Those are times I'll take a step back , breathe and ask my fellow management team for advice and then proceed. It may be contradicting but the most enjoyable part of my job is the people, co-workers and customers. I honestly enjoy working with my team and customer interactions. It feels good to be productive and helpful. – less

Great Place For Amazing Growth
Full Time Department Manager (Current Employee), Brooklyn, NYAugust 11, 2015
Pros: Benefits, Bonuses, mechandising, making goal, having successful closes.
My Experience with H&M has definintely developed my love for retail. My typical work day involves opening the store, cash routines, making breakdown to organize staff functions for the day, closing routines ensuring staff closes out store to compant standards.
I learned how to be very observant and I learned the professionalism to work with staff and customers to react to any situation accordingly.
The hardest part of the job is dealing with making sure the cusomters are satisified.
The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the work I have put into my staff and department flourish. Watching the development of the staff can really show through the look and atmosphere of the store's environment.

Sales Associate (Part-Time) (Current Employee), Alpharetta, GAAugust 7, 2015
Everyday is fast paced which I enjoy. I've learned so much for working with H&M. I've been able to sharpen my multi-tasking skills. The management team is awesome and my co-workers are the best. The hardest part about the job is the aftermath once we close the store. I really enjoy our relationship as a team.

There are no typical days at H&M, everyday is different and there are always new challenges to over come. The best part is being able to help people giving them the great customer service to make them want to shop again.
