Stressful work place with little pay.
Sales Adviser (Former Employee), Washington, DCDecember 18, 2014
Management was horrible and not very honest people. I don't like going home and searching for other places to work because I didn't like it there. Same routines everyday at the end of everything it's just a dead in job.

Very fast paced work environment. Potential for growth . Can be a fun place to work at.
Sales Advisor (Current Employee), Miami Beach, FLDecember 16, 2014
Pros: celebrations of special days, potential for growth within the company, fun environment.
Cons: can be a very stressful job, recognition is not easily observed, one can only work as a part timer and would have to work their way up.
A typical day at work would be to multitask and be ready to take on whatever is thrown at you. From running all clothes racks withing 7 minutes or less, to jumping on the register if needed and making sure to get the customer out in a timely manner. If needed, a project could be given with a specific time frame at any given time. Working here has thought – more... me to work at an extremely fast paced. The company's objective is to keep it simple, they give you instructions as to what needs to be done to set up the business for success and that is solely what they go by. The management team is there to make sure everything is running smoothly and to take care of any customer issues. The coworkers make everything happen, from making the work place a fun environment to work at, as to making sure all task are done as a team. The hardest part of the job is achieving the time frames at times due to heavy traffic and other issues that can come along the way. The most enjoyable part of the job is accomplishing the goals for the day including sales goals and projects finished. Also celebrating birthdays and special accomplishments the store has done throughout the year. – less

Great Company to work for but physically tiring.
Sales Advisor (Current Employee), Brooklyn, NYDecember 9, 2014
Cons: tiring
H&M is a great company to be with because of the benefits part time employees receive and the opportunity for promotion is always available. I enjoy being able to assist customers with their wardrobe. I find it to be fun. The hardest part is being on your feet for 95% of your shift. Like any other job, some co-workers are great to be around and others – more... not so much. – less

A typical day at wok consist of me greeting customers during their entry of the store. Also maintaining a well kept department while assisting co-workers in need of help.

Good company with great pay, but tough hours.
Department Manager (Former Employee), phoenix, azNovember 4, 2014
Great people and support systems that can be cultivated from within your location. As a manager you have the ability to push your own growth and development. Quality training materials are available and encouraged. Pay is very competitive compared to most large retailers. Excellent benefits and PTO that you can accrue. Generally a great place to be – more... if Retail is your calling!

Cons
Training can be hit or miss, company policies have evolved over the past few years and has allowed training and development take an immediate hit. When training time effects the stores bottom line that is where the company makes cuts, contributing to training that can be less rewarding.
Its retail, work life balance is okay, flexibility for vacation is quite good though..
District team members can be un-responsive and distant.

Advice to Management
Implement systems when they are ready for use and wont become useless for 2 months.. (there is no reason a company with all these resources should allow failure)
React appropriately to new system changes. Allow for time to see success or opportunity, especially when your market varies greatly.
Pay bonuses...
Stricter policies would allow for better accountability for staff. Seven chances every six months for time and attendance is absurd.

In all honesty, there are always anomalies within a company this size, give it a try, it might be perfect for you! – less

Great company to move up in. Working in a high-traffic NYC retail store can be intense but also fun because of the different types of clients who shop at H&M. Great opportunities to work outside of the retail store as well.

Department Manager/Support Team (Former Employee), New York, NyOctober 28, 2014
Pros: holiday pay on birthdays
Cons: no coverage for lunch breaks
H&M is a high volume workplace. I had the most lively, fun co-workers. They made the sometimes overwhelming workload bearable. The hardest part of working for H&M is that the store is busy from open to close, making it impossible to take a breath. The most enjoyable part of working for H&M is getting new, fashionable uniforms every season and getting – more... holiday pay for your birthday. Overall it is a great company to work for. – less
