Avis d'employé sur H&M
Messy, stressful, confusing
I have worked at H&M for three years and each year has been a rollercoster. My first year we had an evil manager that threatened employees with write ups for things that weren’t even ruled. She made up her own rules and pinned employees against each other. It took a full year for higher ups to fire her. We’ve had long periods of time where we did not have a real store manager. They preach wanting to hire from within but refused to hire a store manager from within our store. I was never clear on what my job description was and what the rules were that I had to follow. Overall I think H&M as a company does not care about their employees as much as they like to make people think. I never felt listened too as an employee.

Sometimes snacks, good friends
Bad pay, bad management, bad company
bad politics within the workplace - a lot of favouritism within the workplace, the general manager was known for belittle the employees who were minorities and that made it very uncomfortable for myself and other
My experience has been on the positive side. Each hour you are assigned a different station, such as cash, or fitting rooms, or the floor - and this really helps with getting bored or burnt-out. You can also be scheduled for a truck shift, where you process incoming garments, and for this you are in the back - sometimes though, they ask you to come out onto the floor to 'support' which is really annoying. I recommend making friends with your coworkers as soon as possible. If not, you will be left out of 'the loop' and work will be boring and miserable. One of the only saving graces of working there are the friends I get to see. Management sucked when I first started, hours all over the place, disorganized, some people flat out rude. However, things are getting better and I hope that hours will be more balanced and I will feel like I can actually talk to management about any issues/concerns I have.
Friendly atmosphere, Fair breaks
Long hours BUT only for certain employees, disorganized
The management seemed to not really care about the employees and also seemed to pick and choose who they liked and gave the hours to those people. The work environment felt unfair and when asking for hours the management would tell me that i would receive them and then give them to a person who called in three times per week.
Some people were very nice to work with
It was an unfair work environment with no structure
