    Pros

    Discount, nice clothes, good people, fun meetings.

    Cons

    No opportunity for growth, very huge responsibilities with low pay, over-worked, never enough staff, horrible hours.

    Biggest issue was that they never increased my wage as minimum wage changed. Essentially, with 3 years of experience my wage was the same as the new peoples due to the minimum wage jump! I pointed it out to my managers and they said "employees are not allowed to discus wage so this is incorrect!"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Terrible job! Treat your employees better! I can see why there is such a turnover rate!

    I worked at H&M part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I loved the feeling going to work knowing there would be a challenge and that I was actually trained to handle it. I dabbled in customer service, merchandising, and receiving. Also compared to other retailers the pay is pretty fair. Couple that with the discount and the low prices and it's pretty easy to get comfortable. I also loved that as part time I got vacation hours which I cashed out when I quit.

    Cons

    As a lot of people state favoritism is definitely used here. I worked full time hours with part time status while others were given full time without putting in nearly as much work as me. They use promotions to get you to work harder. "If you help get the store to this standard we will have more time to develop you." It's honestly a load of bull.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure the store level is actually giving promotions to people who deserve them.
