sometimes the branch isn't the same as the whole company
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Cribbs Causeway, Bristol – 23 September 2017
I do believe this review only stands for the branch I was working at...not H&M worldwide.
Agreed to holiday over christmas break so that I was able to go home and see my family, management did not stand by that agreement, leaving me having to resign in order to spend christmas with my family and not alone.
Involuntary overtime was given, and was treated as contract hours, so even if at college or university, still expected to show up and would be treated as an unauthorised absence.
I agreed in my interview as well that I would do a maximum of 8 hours overtime a week, as my contract was 8 hours a week. Some weeks was given 40 hours instead of maximum 16.
Apart from all of that, job was easy and pretty consistent. I have been to other stores and know people who work in different branches, so this is definitely not a company-wide review at all.
