  3. "Assistant Management - terrible experience"

    I worked at Hollister Co. full-time

    Pros

    Discount - 5 items at 50% off every month

    Cons

    Awful hours, working a lot of unpaid overtime. Holidays were cancelled without me even knowing and there are also a lot of internal politics which make the professional environment extremely difficult. Everyone is very 'clicky' throughout the entire company. The district managers are known for treating staff appallingly. No encouragement, only negativity

    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 (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.

    had fun working with people, great managers, friendly colleagues, flexible hours, good to work there if you're a student,

    Cons

    no breaks, when i worked for 8 hours, especially Christmas time, you have to be fair looking and skinny to work there. no free uniform, you have to buy your own uniform, no benefits, come and go
