Sales Advisor (Ancien employé) – Red Deer, AB – 16 août 2019
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.
super fast-paced job, apply only if you think you could do it

not gonna lie but working at H&M downtown vancouver would probably be one of the hardest retail jobs that you could apply for. since the mall is so big and the store itself is also pretty big, it's always busy everyday and during the weekends it gets even busier. it can be really fast-paced and hectic, you'll always have to be 100% focused or else you're prone to make small mistakes. a typical day would be would be working in a certain department (women's department, men's department, etc.) and in each hour they would schedule you to do the cash, fits, etc. it was painfully confusing at first but if you're strong and confident enough you'll get used to it. i liked the co-workers in here, they were all out going and easy to get along with, always so helpful, and the managers were caring too. but unfortunately they had to let me go. :(
just one tip and advice, if you're new here, make sure to always ask questions no matter what to avoid mistakes. apply here if you think that you genuinely thrive in fast-paced environments.
