    Pros

    Flexible hours, they will hire people without much experience.

    Cons

    Very boring, Hollister are very specific on how clothes should be folded.
    Minimum wage
    Used to have very strict looks policy

    Advice to Management

    More incentives/ excitement to make the job more interesting! It was very dull work and just found myself excited for the end of each shift. Take the time to get to know employees and don't treat us like school children. If you do this, you should have a lower turnover.

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

    Pros

    -Great discount (50% off 10 things maybe once every 2/3 months + other offers) 20% off any other time
    -Good pay, if you are under 18 (more than min wage for 16-21)
    -Relaxed environment
    -Tasks are not too difficult, but standards are high (if the jeans are not all perfectly aligned, you're refolding the entire stack.)
    -Friendly colleague
    -Flexible (availability can be changed online for 2 weeks ahead, can open 5 hours-as much availability as you like)
    -Facebook group to swap, pick up or give away shifts

    Cons

    -Managers do not schedule hours fairly. They have clear favourites who ALWAYS get shifts
    -0 Hour contract (from day one you are told they cannot guarantee shifts every week.)- HOWEVER. I have gone over a MONTH not being given a shift. It is disgusting and pointless me even being employed
    -Poor training, after being there 6 months I am still not till trained
    -Cleaning. if you're on the early shift you'll have to hoover, mop, clean mirrors, remove litter. Usually given an hour to do the entire store by yourselves.
    -CALL IN SHIFTS : calling in 1-2 hours before a scheduled shift to see if you are needed. 90% of the time you are not.

    Advice to Management

    Please do not be biased and have clear favourites. It is unfair (especially if people NEED money for bills/payoffs etc)
    Train your staff better

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

    Pros

    Very friendly management and team
    Very casual work environment
    Good discount on clothes
    Zero-hour contract means good flexibility

    Cons

    Bad pay
    Often only short shifts are given so they don't have to give you breaks which is a bit of a pain if you're travelling far to get to work.

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

    Pros

    Other staff were friendly, quite an easy job, short shifts, easy to expand customer service skills, easy to swap/pick up shifts

    Cons

    Management are rude and lack experience, often got sent home after 30 mins of shift because they didn't have enough hours to give everyone, management had favourites

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    over christmas loads there was loads of hours available which was good, earns lots of money from long hours

    Cons

    rest of time hardly any hours available and call in shifts were annoying. also sometimes can be quite tiring as on feet all day

    Advice to Management

    maybe hire more full-time staff who are dedicated to their job instead of loads of unreliable students
