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

    Pros

    Fully flexible shifts from a 0 hour contract, meaning its a really good job to have for students wanting to get a bit of money
    Employee benefits of 50% off

    Cons

    Not always promised shifts every week, however not always bad as there is the opportunity to cover other peoples shifts. Sometimes can be stressful in a very busy environment

    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!
