Sales Associate (Part-time) (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB26 March 2017
Terrible management, terrible pay. Been working here part-time for many years, haven't had a raise in a very long time. This company is the worst to work for. Cutting back all part-time employees to 4 hour shifts! Not entitled to a break during the 4 hour shifts - this company needs to be reported to the Better Business Bureau. Absolute garbage.

Sales Advisor (Former Employee) –  Vaughan, ON22 March 2017
Company is a good company to work for, just the workload was too much to handle during my pregnancy. Training is really good and very detailed to help your success.
Pros
You get your birthday off and still get paid for it.

It's great place to work
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Vaughan, ON18 March 2017
Depending on location it can be one of the most busiest stores. For me it was busy but you get used to the fast pace u have to be in. The pay may not feel like it's worth the amount of work you put in but the co workers, managers, and environment make up for it.
Pros
The discount was 25%
Cons
Pay

Capitalism at it's finest
Part-time Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Surrey, BC17 March 2017
The company does not care about the workers. To anyone who is applying, the longest shift you will get is 5 hours max and 1-2 shifts per week. The management does not care about the worker's concerns because they are more concerned about meeting sales quotas. I understand that if the store isn't making enough money that means less hours but if there is a high turnover rate in employees there is something wrong within the company and its policies. I highly urge that you do not apply if you are a student in university, you will not get shifts and you will no choice but to quit because you cannot pay your tuition working one 3 hour shift per week
Pros
literally none
Cons
No hours, it's a waste of time

Where Favoritism and Nepotism live !!
Department Manager (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB23 February 2017
Worked at H&M for almost 5 years, it was a great place to work in the beginning but things started going down hill after 2 years. Favoritism and Nepotism was the best practices that the Support office did. The best place to work survey was a joke and was always rigged. Overall was a great place but it's Leaders at the Support office were people with little or no skill.
The salary was peanuts and their expectations was through the roof.
Its great for part time as you dont have to deal with the useless support office. No overtime but they expect you to give your life to the company. You can have advancement opportunities only if you sucked up to the corporate office leaders.
Pros
Fashionable clothes
Cons
Long hours, no recognition, favoritism . No advancement

Such a great experience
Sales associate (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB20 February 2017
Honest a typical shift would be working in fits helping people and delivering great customer service as always working the floor doing the running but also never getting my break having to pick up alot of slack from other people that would show up extremely late. I've learned soo much and got to work with amazing people who are happy all the time the hardest part about the job was the management team they were very unorganized and fail to really take care of their employees but the most enjoyable part was the diversity and eye-opening experiences of different people who all share love for the same brand
Pros
great people
Cons
not organized

Unethical, Unprofressional and Abusive Workplace
Sales Advisor (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB30 January 2017
Bullying, Poor Communication, Low Pay/High Work Load, Unethical Shift Hours.

This company is good at marketing their work place but the management at this particular store is very unethical. The turnover rate is extremely high and the people who have quit have all experienced this. I just want to highlight my points so people applying can read about what goes on here. I left my job there due to these circumstances and stand by all these observations.

Managers belittle other managers to employees, managers talk down upon other employees to employees. This creates a culture of negative gossip in which employees will want to befriend the managers in order to not be bullied. This also creates a culture of fraternization. Respecting the power figures is of certain importance, any feedback is met with no changes what so ever.

Pay is minimum wage. You are on your feet your entire shift, breaks are frowned upon you can get between 4-9 hr shifts. Be prepared to be standing this long as well as running around. The job itself as expected is doing cash, customer service, processing shipments and putting out new clothes. Your functions will change every hour. Some days you will not get a break, you could be working until midnight and work at 7am the next day. This is EXPECTED. You are expected to work these types of hours for minimum wage. You will notice there is little to no consistency with the management, most will do whatever they want, this confuses employees on what the standard operating procedures actually should be creating a really difficult environment as there's no
  more... real direction, especially with managers talking badly about other managers.

Part time employees do most of the work for minimum wage and there isn't enough of them. Managers are paid well with benefits. However the environment at my store was extremely toxic. I think the company has a good direction but they do not have the right people executing it at certain locations.

If you are a looking for a part time job I would look elsewhere, it's marketed as a "fun job" but there's virtually no fun involved. You are expected to work in silence some days for increased productivity. Missed breaks happen often, long hours with incomprehensible tasks. A task may be to clean an entire department by yourself, help customers, do cash, and expect everything to look according to standard by the end of the night without help from others. Customers will clearly note there isn't enough people. If the company thinks this produces productivity that's up to them but everyone else can be the judge of that. Don't be deceived by their marketing, behind the scenes it's not well run. Lack of training in managing people as well as human resources is quickly seen.

People you work with at H&M give you a positive vibe, family feeling. The management's work ethic is great. Customers may get a little hectic, but nothing that cant be managed.
