H&M Experience

Sales Advisor (Former Employee)
San Diego, CA (US)

I worked at H&M full-time for more than 3 years

ProsCompany is overall a good company to work for. You can move up with the company if you work fast and can multitask but you have to be very vocal about your goals with the company.

ConsNo life. If you are full time sales advisor be ready to work and not complain.

Advice to Senior ManagementTo not pick "favorites"

Not the best, But it's something.

Sales Associate (Former Employee)
Washington, DC (US)

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

ProsFriendly Co-workers, Pay high for retail job. Managers are pretty cool, including District Team.

ConsThey get WAY TOO PERSONAL. They play games on your development, money, and hours and make a lot of promises that they can not keep.

Advice to Senior ManagementThat straight-forward and open-minded Value, You claim to keep is bull. What's the point of having value when you don't follow them? Manages take a lot personal and you take it out on hours. STOP OVER HIRING. Hire all these part-timers and the full-timers are force to take 32 hours. If you claim to hire within the company, do that. You have way too many how want full time, then you turn around and hire someone give them full-time and they become a waste cause they're not trained and they are not efficient. Then you're mad cause they don't pick quickly.. That makes no sense. STOP make promise to people.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good benefits, busy busy store

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at H&M

Prosfast, high energy work, customers love fashion and bargains (you should too.) If you're independent and used to following up on things, this is the place for you!

ConsMost of the time there are not enough employees working which leads to you being shifted in a ton of different directions. ( its not for everyone.)

Advice to Senior ManagementSmile, promote high energy during store hours.
