Usually I would be working by myself most of my shift. I would cover cash, fitting rooms, cleaning and running. I was trained in many different positions. I was trained as a visual, a truck responsible, I trained the new people on the floor and on truck, I helped open and close tills and I helped with safe count in the morning and evening. I had great co-workers when I got to work with them, and it was a very fast paced environment most days. There were a few evenings where there was a lot of call-outs and it was left to me, one person downstairs and one manager to run the store for the last few hours before closing. Management was not very good at keeping their word which was very frustrating. There were days where customers were very difficult to deal with, which was not very fun either. I loved all my co-workers and I enjoyed doing visual work, that was my favourite part of the job.
I worked at H&M for 2 years and i have to say i was soo sick of it! Managers are rude, there was this one manager who would talk rudly and bossily whenever, the store got busy. i always felt i was being picked on . whenever, soemone made a mistake she would come upto me and would tell me that it was my fault even though how much i defended myself, she still chose to come back at me for the tinsiest things others would do. they would tell you "hey how are you" barely looking at your face. managers would talk ill about sales associates either with the managers or other sales associates. they say we are family, but majority of the managers had their favourites.i wouldnt recommend anyone this place, work is stressfull, understaffed and very disappointing,
