Nice Place to Work
Brand Representative (Former Employee) –  Durham, NCAugust 18, 2018
A nice upbeat place for young people to work. Young managers, 30% discount off of clothes, when a new set of clothes come out for the season you get AAA's that allow you to get full price items for 50% off

CASHIER (Former Employee) –  Glen burnie mdAugust 18, 2018
As a high school study and college student they worked wonderfully with my hours and around my class schedule but it is not a long term career for someone beyond the point of high school.

Hard working environment
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  San Antonio, TXAugust 17, 2018
Work environment wasn’t too bad but the manager was never content with anything anyone did, therefore she created a mood in the room which wasn’t pleasant to anyone. Other than that the schedule was flexible and you could either work a lot or very little. Called in many times which weren’t at the best times.
Pros
Flexible hours
Cons

good frist job
Brand Rep (Former Employee) –  Wayne, NJAugust 17, 2018
I think if you are a high school student and you need a first job it's a great starter. I would try to not stay longer than 6 months if you don't intend to move up in the company.
If you do intend to move up, I'd say for about 16 months and then try to spend the next year or two work at least 2 other retail stores and then return to Hollister when you have your bachelors or a month before to settle back in then apply to become a manager. make sure you're on good terms with your manager and have become acquainted with managers of other stores, they can help if you have questions. working at even one other store can improve your customer service abilities and your adaptability to different situations. you can get this same experience by staying at hollister however the lack of a change in environment can be a spirit killer.
Pros
flexibility
Cons
buy their clothes, strict look policy, messy management

General Retail Job
Stock/Customer Service Associate (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CAAugust 14, 2018
This Job is never hard labor. If you learn to help customers then the maintenance is little to none. Dealing with a variety of customers is a great way to learn how to communicate and respond properly.
Pros
Discounts
Cons
Music is the same and is required to play all day.

Fun place to work for a first job
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Palmdale, CAAugust 14, 2018
It's retail so it was average on the work environment and promotion categories. It was just somewhere to work for the time being. Management was good. No promotion possibilities unless you have a bachelors degree.

very boring
Brand representative (Current Employee) –  Asheville, NCAugust 11, 2018
there is no competition (at least at my Asheville location) so it gets very old and there is no incentive to do your job. i dont think its a very welcoming job environment and i feel that the girls there are mean. i do not like this job.
Pros
discounts on clothing
Cons
boring, short breaks, minimum wage

Stock Associate (Former Employee) –  Cherry Hill, NJAugust 9, 2018
The nice customers and the employees were great. I need how to talk to people better and to fold more neatly. The management wasn't so great at all didn't really know how to manage. I would say the hardest parts are holidays because they don't know how to control or did directions right. the most enjoyable was when everything was put together.
Cons
had to keep asking to go on break

Assistant Manager (Current Employee) –  Minnetonka, MNAugust 9, 2018
Hollister Co. is a great place to get experience. Everything can be taught. Some times things can become fast paced, but it is mostly chill-axing. Like all other retail stores, the hours can make it difficult to lead a balanced life.

discount, diverse environment

Horrible place to work
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CAAugust 8, 2018
Don't even waste your time applying. Management is horrible, location is horrible, and there's never parking available for employees. They assume everyone is a thief and check your bags before your even allowed to clock in for your shift which means if you aren't early your late for work because of the bag check. They will also check your bag when you leave but you have to clock out and be walked out by the manager on duty.
