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 partplus... of the job: breaks and when the shift is over.moins

Horrible management, either extremely long hours, or virtually no hours at all
Sales Associate (Ancien employé) – Burlington, ON – 8 octobre 2019
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,
