    I worked at Hollister Co. part-time

    Pros

    Flexible hours (0 hour contract), lenient and friendly management, friendly work atmosphere

    Cons

    Management was lenient and I had to pick up slack fairly often and wasn't always acknowledged for it, but I would rather than that managers that were too strict

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to who is doing what right and wrong

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

    Pros

    Lovely staff and very social have made this job great. 0 hours contract worked well for when university work got busy or wanting to go away for christmas or to see family for long periods of time

    Cons

    Management has been mixed. Sometimes feels unfair when long term associates who know the store inside out get paid minimum wage against managers who dont know the ropes yet. Also tight time pressures or an expectancy to do more than required can make some shifts stressful. Cutting Hours and prioritising Brand Reps over Stock can make stock shifts very difficult.
