I've recently applied for (and am pretty sure I got the job) to work part time at H&M... I am primarily looking to work for the discount (for some fun disposable clothes). I'm just wondering what it might be (the details of the discount would also be much appreciated).
I went in today and did get offered the job - I'm getting trained on Friday, I've been told the discount starts right away and there's a 3 month probationary period. If anyone is interested I can give you details as I get the, otherwise feel free to delete this thread :-)
So.. here's the update - i've been @ H&M for a bit now, the discount is only 25% sadly (I was hoping for something like 30-50% a la bananarepublic.. but I guess the prices are so low at H&M it'll still beat the BR prices, besides I like HM more than banana, it's more interesting and fun)...
As for the working/atmosphere it's hectic to say the least... running the clothes/trying to make it not look like a crazy thrift store/random mess of junk is hard... and I never knew that clothes are tried on so much (I mean i did give it some thought - but putting it all back - I swear I cycled the same 6 dresses AT LEAST 20 times in my 8 hour shift.. and no one bought a single one! it kind of makes me want to wash my clothes before wearing them for the first time, lol..)
As well, working/seeing the clothes all the time is like browsing the store for the entire shift, so there are soo many things I want!!! I did get this job for the discount, but I feel like it may backfire hahaha

ok so i know this is kind of random question but i figured this was as bad as any place to ask:
Has anyone ever transferred from a US H&M to a European location? is this even possible and if so is it a major headache? i've heard it's a ridiculous feat simply transferring from one US state to another...
Has anyone ever worked in a European H&M and if so how do you like it? I noticed the weekend business hours are noticeably shorter which is very appealing. Also is it true only the US H&M locations sensor their merchandise?
Planning on visiting Stockholm as my cousin i haven't seen in ages invited us to use their flat free of charge. Also my cousin and her husband mentioned that retailers in Sweden are not very customer service oriented and one has to go out of the way to find assistance. Honestly i like to be left alone when shopping so this would suit me just fine...
in response to a previous question pay @ H&M is actually higher than the average retailer and in my and other people's cases, the employee names the price and H&M honors it (within reason of course).
