Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Sterling, VA – January 3, 2018
Typical day at work would include greeting customers, cashier duties, and stocking shelves. Learned how to manage customers and help them find what they are looking for. Environment was enjoyable with excellent, friendly staff.
Brand Representative (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – April 18, 2018
I learned how to manage the computer (register) at Hollister. Basically, how to return, exchange, and complete peoples purchases. I like how we need to learn how to communicate with people I ways we have never challenged ourselves before
Face-paced work environment that teaches business/sales administration, recruiting and staffing, yet limits career opportunities
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Oxford Valley, PA – April 18, 2018
At Hollister Co., I have learned how to manage daily store processes, track and improve business metrics through goal/playbook creation. I also have learned how to vet a good staff and reduce turnover year-to-year. Strong marketing and promotion skills along with expert customer service ability have given me skills to use to further my career. Mobility within the company is slow and seems based more on tenure than merit, and accountability of work done store-level, while done as a team, leaves much to be desired for recognition and compensation.
Work environment, flexibility and engagement
Lacking mobility, compensation, and career consulting/opportunity creation
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Wauwatosa, WI – April 18, 2018
The management can be kind of under managed, they definately hire more by the personality and look of the brand then so much the skills. they will have only one person on the clock in the front sometimes.
Stock Associate (Former Employee) – Garden City, NY – April 17, 2018

Stock Room Assistant Manger (Former Employee) – Altamonte Springs, FL – April 15, 2018
As an assistant manager at Hollister I had to make sure the stock room was running without any issues. Make sure all merchandise was price correctly and folded correctly in order to go out on to the sales floor. Make sure sales floor was fulling stocked with every style merchandise that was in stock. Stock is dealing with all the merchandise that goes out on the floor and anything that we sell.
If you are a typical high school student looking for a fun job that gets you your gas money and money to go out with friends then this is the job for you. If you are looking to advance in the business then it is very possible you just have to put in the work. Managers are usually easy to work with, but it is possible to end up with ones that are not as easy.
Holister Co. is a great company, it has it’s pros and cons and some flaws, but overall it is a great company with flexible hours and a great staff team. They clearly focus on customer service and make sure everyone is happy. The company also provide discount benefits. Overall my view is positive, there has been some hiccups here and there but it has been a great first entry level job.
Fantastic staff, great people, flexible hours
Stocks do both brand rep and stock tasks, stocks don’t get much credit.
Brand Representative (Current Employee) – Algonquin, IL – April 12, 2018
As a brand representative, most of my shifts are 4-5 hours long with no breaks. I used to get 20 hours a week, but now, I'm lucky to get a shift once a week. I've gone weeks without working even though I have been available. Management is absolutely terrible. Managers are full of drama, unable to train properly, and do not know how to do their own job. Managers have turned getting hours into a competition. I think the pay is too low for all the work I do. No benefits other than an employee discount. Unfair treatment. Barely any hours. Not worth it overall.
Back-up money, employee discount
No breaks, low salary, no benefits, poor management. Basically everything
Sales associate (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – April 10, 2018
Typical day day involved folding clothes in a fashionable, neat and organized, manner cleaning the area I was working at, some days I worked at the cashier, and typically would do inventory every time I closed.
