    I have been working at Hollister Co. part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Change your availability on the fly,
    increase your social circle,
    improve your confidence,
    vibrant work space,
    lovely managers,
    swap shifts with other associates with ease,
    nice discount

    Cons

    Even though you set your availability that doesn't mean you will always get shifts,
    regional manager brings the mood in the workplace down when she visits,
    can be quite stressful as managers can ask a lot from you at once,

    Advice to Management

    regional manager should be more positive in the workplace

    I worked at Hollister Co. part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the employees were very nice to hang out with. Very flexible working hours.

    Cons

    There were well over a hundred people employed at the branch I was at (Bristol, UK), so it was difficult to get shifts as everyone fought over them. Every week they'd have group interviews to have more people join as well so it was a bit ridiculous.
    Also, the "rules" that we had to work by in terms of appearance were just one step too far. Our contract told us things such as "nails aren't allowed to grow 3/4 of an inch past the end of our finger" and silly things like that.

    Advice to Management

    Stop employing so many people!

    I worked at Hollister Co. part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible working, fantastic people and a great camaraderie spirit. Hollister is great for young uni or post uni graduates to get a bit of cash and enjoy working. If you were a good worker you would get a lot of hours.

    Cons

    The look policy was very strict which i believe has now been relaxed. Call in shifts were a pain too, too often if you were on call youd find that you werent needed.

    Advice to Management

    Be more independent. Managers were controlled by the book and memos from head office. They werent really in command, just at the bottom of a very long chain of command stretching all the way to America.

    I worked at Hollister Co. part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A great group of young people working together
    Great store atmosphere
    Straightforward hiring process

    Cons

    In a whole shift you wouldn't earn enough to buy a sweater or pair of jeans from the store which was demoralising, especially since the staff discount was minimal and you were limited to buying only a few items per season that you would mostly wear at work anyways.
    Mangers were required to have a degree of any kind; some of the team leaders were very young with no more retail experience than the general staff.
    While 'models' were working on the floor at daytime, nighttime workers would do most of the work.

    Advice to Management

    Offer better incentives for employees and train management/ team leaders or make sure they have hands-on experience.

    Pros

    It is flexible, great people, managers are young and are therefore easier to engage with, the job is easy overall, great discounts, nice atmosphere, good music (sometime repetitive).

    Cons

    hour-cuts represented clocked-in staff to work more and not get paid over-time and other associates barely getting any hours. Forced to buy certain clothes as uniform and wear it the way they want us too.

    Advice to Management

    Managers sometimes lack leadership skills, autocratic styles tend to come forward. Might be in relation to younger workers as well (15-18 yrs).

    I worked at Hollister Co. part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Great environment to work in with loads of amazing people (I thought they would be pretentious and snobby but all the "models" and "impacters" were delightful
    - 0 Hour contracts can be a double edged sword but if your at university then it's wonderful as you can work and study at the same time
    - Decent discount

    Cons

    - Getting shifts during non-peak store months can be very difficult if you are a new member that hasnt proven themselves yet
