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

Nice place to work at, and a lot of great and friendly people. Typical day is very straightforward and easy you have a daily and follow it, it tells you everything you'll be doing for the day. Management is alright just like any place, just get on their good side and you're fine.
The management team is horrible, head office employees have unrealistic views of what you should be doing in the store especially since they never work in the actual retail stores they know nothing! Hours are always being changed, they change your schedule without letting you know, management talks bad about the employees all the time. Seriously, one of the worst management teams I have ever experienced. They override you with work all the time, raises are very hard to achieve no matter how hard you work, theres constant favouritism... no benefits unless your'e a manager... If you decide to work for H&M make sure you're with a good team because it could be tough working here.
