You meet great people and get to experience different things. It was a really relaxed work environment. Your managers play a key role in how enjoyable your experience is though.

Other than having good benefits this company isn't what people make out to be. They're unfair when handling promoting the right people, they look over you if they don't think they can handle you. Their racist in everything they do. Their not one person with color within the corporate level that works for H&M. They treat their Employees unfair and misconstrued.
Pros
Health Benefits
Cons
Short breaks, Pay isn't all that well.

All of the sales advisor and some of the DM's are great to work with but the district team is very out of touch and has very little knowledge of how a day is in a store so they create unrealistic goals. The pandemic has shown that H&M is ill-equipped and not supportive of its employees, employee beware!
Pros
Co-workers and Birthday pay
Cons
management and no work life balance

Full time people are most valuable than part time people. Part time people almost does not exist for them ...no advantage at all. Work lif balance is inexistant

Managers play favorites and like to target the workers they don鈥檛 like, and don鈥檛 appreciate any of the work you do unless you are a favorite. Most of the time managers are in the back of the store doing nothing while the sales associates are on the floor doing all the work. Employee鈥檚 come and go due to poor management and disregard to employee happiness.

Very deceitful company and has the worst work/life balance. A revolving door, the turnover is so high is unbelievable. You can get fired for being over 3 minutes late. No exceptions. Within a year, I鈥檝e seen more than 30 employees being let go, which is why they hire in bulk. You will be sold this perfect idea of working here because the office is cute and sometimes they provide food, but the bottom line is you鈥檙e working in an overcrowded call center being highly micromanaged

Fast paced job, stressful at times, and the manager we had was hired in from the outside of the company and didn鈥檛 know how to run things once he got there. Made the work environment very unsettling, and he was very pushy and overbearing at times. There was no room for advancement at this location.

The work/life balance is not the best since you work a rotating schedule. There is plenty of opportunity for growth. H&M is a very inclusive and diverse company.

The company is great, but when it comes hours and days were they schedule all over the place 6am-12am or working with your everyday life, it's one way or the highway. I love the employee's I work with, but the company is based in Sweden and they can't relate to the day in's and outs of the US. They can also fire you at will.

The bar is set low for the company as a whole. Mediocrity is the game. It鈥檚 like a high school clique. Mall rats get promoted. Any experience you bring from the outside carries zero weight here. Don鈥檛 waste your time.

Great job! You can build a career here at the customer service center. But you would have to sacrifice you life outside of work. That is how bad the scheduling is. Retail hours are not bad. But it's pretty great environment to work in.

H and M does a great job with their employees. Paid vacation, birthday off, always paid overtime, and clear professional development plans are among the incentives to working here.

Culture of the company is great, provides flexible hours focused around the completion of clearly defined tasks. Lots of paid time off and sickness time off. However, not a lot of upward mobility, based on the Global perspective of the specific role.
