Great culture, can be very fast paced
Part time sales advisor (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ON29 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!
Pros
amazing coworkers, team spirit, flexible hours, great environment
Cons
not always enough coverage during peak hours, unpaid lunch, can be stressful

Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Dartmouth, NS15 April 2017
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, ON15 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!

Toxic environment with horrible management and miserable two faced employees
Sales Associate/Cashier (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC2 April 2017
A typical day includes literally running around the store. Every hour, your tasks change. So in a 6 hour long shift, you will be going back and fourth between different departments either cleaning, running or trying to remain sane.

On days when your short on staff (honestly every shift) you can find yourself being responsible for cleaning an entire department, processing transactions at the cash and being responsible for watching the fitting room. Please keep in mind that if you've ever walked into an H&M before you know that the stores aren't small so its almost impossible to do this alone.

The employees are horrible. Although a lot of them are friends, they've known each other for years outside of the store! So when new people get hired, don't expect them to welcome you with open arms. When asking for help, FORGET IT. they are extremely rude and gossip constantly about how you should just "know how to do this" Its a very negative and fake workplace. Picture yourself working with the girls from Mean Girls, thats how working at H&M is. Ask any one of the employees how their shift is going.. I promise you, they'll say their "Fed up of this"

Management is worse. None of them know how to run a team at all. They are extremely unwelcoming and two-faced. Please keep in mind, when they say: "Yeah its okay, its not a problem, sure!" its a lie and expect to find yourself in a horrible situation a few short weeks later.

Their on call system is jacked. IF your looking to make some extra money, just don't go there. Its very hard to get hours there. The most enjoyable part
  more... of the job: breaks and when the shift is over.  less
Pros
25% discount on clothing
Cons
Horrible management, either extremely long hours, or virtually no hours at all

Big work team, got to meet lots of coworkers and always had an enjoyable experience on the job. Some management positions should've been changed as they were not capable of managing people in an appropriate way.

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.
Pros
None
Cons
Too many to mention...

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
