Sales Advisor (Current Employee) – San Francisco, CA – 9 November 2013
I fell in love with H&M the company and the store in the beginning. Honestly the company is really great and has great values. I've learned a lot from H&M. But the store location I work at isn't that great. Some people have been working there for 6+ years and haven't been promoted, it's sad. Lots of favoritism. They are lgbtq friendly which is a really big plus. Management is kind of nice but you could kiss your life goodbye if you decide to work for this H&M location. It's a flagship store so they are busier than most. They ask a lot from you so they have very high expectations.
free food sometimes during over nights, special events, and black friday
favoritism, making you do more than one thing, understaffed ALL THE TIME, not payed enough

H&M was a great job that required a little too much commitment for part-time. Required minimum hours was a little much to handle with school and extracurriculars. A great place to work if it's the only thing on your plate.

The company has great training in place but they take advantage by using "training" as a way to get part time sales associates who want to move up to do management jobs for minimum wage. Store manager at Limeridge Mall location is rasict and makes sales associates keep a close eye on any groups of black people that come into the store way more than white people.

I was with the company for about 5 years its a good place for teenagers to build a resume and personality the company is overall good but the management sucks and isn't fair. They are not fair enough for Women who are pregnant.
day to day for a part timer is Running clothes taking care of the fitting room being on cash. rotating between Functions occasionally being on truck.
Learning the skills at H&M is amazing it will take you far. I jumped from one retailer to another and H&M is the ONLY company that i've seen work as efficiently in a fast past environment.
Meeting new friends and networking was my favourite part of working there. if it wasn't for my co-workers I would of not known how I would make it through the day.

If you really want to work in retail this is a great place. They're training and management are great. Retail in general in pretty unpleasant pay but I would say H&M is better than most. I would say the hours are not great but they are normal for retail.

the managers were difficult to deal with at times, and sometimes they don't have enough people working, so its difficult on the ones that are. HM has good culture though, and they try to give back to the community, which is commendable.
fun place to work at times but now they're cutting back
Sales Advisor (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 7 May 2017
had an okay experience at H&M, loved my co-workers but management was not the best. H&M is changing and is now cutting back hours even though they keep hiring more people. i liked the company before the changes happened and now they're just going downhill.
Part time sales advisor (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 29 April 2017
I loved working at H&M. Their core values as a company really shaped me into the worker I am today. They value hard work and dedication almost as much as offering fashion at the best price. I really loved the culture and the vibe of the store. I met a lot of great people. The only thing I would recommend is make sure you say no when you are at your limit. Sometimes the hours for part timers would get a little out of hand and the store can be incredibly busy. It's okay to say no to that extra shift if you're burnt out. Don't push yourself for the sake of the paycheque. The customers will benefit from you being well rested and happy to be there!
amazing coworkers, team spirit, flexible hours, great environment
not always enough coverage during peak hours, unpaid lunch, can be stressful
Honestly, this is not a bad job. I was welcomed into the team and felt comfortable with management and my other co-workers. However, I found that the hours were all over the place and the pay was not fantastic.
H&M makes you feel like you belong to a big family
Visual Manager (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 15 April 2017
H&M group is a great place to work for! A day at work is never the same! For me the best part of working for H&M was the workplace culture! The company believes in all the employees and it feels like being part of a big family!

J'ai travaillé pendant quelque mois pour h&m et l'équipe est incroyable.L'énergie entre collègues est très agréable et paisible a vivre et favorise un bon travaille. J'ai vraiment aimé mon expérience et j'espère pouvoir y retravailler un jour.
