Sales Assistant in St Albans
fast paced workplace
H&M is a very busy store therefore you are always expected to be doing something productive. It is good in the snese that it makes time go faster however it can be very stressful when it comes to tidying the shop floor and clearing rails at the end of the day. I am only on a 8 hour contract so a typical day would be come in the morning before the store is open and clear rails from the day before. After that is finished, due to covid, I might stand at the entrance and count the number of customers in the store or leaving the store. I would then typically work on till untill the end of my shift. If i am working in the afternoon I will typically start my shift on the tills and stay on the till untill it is time to tidy at 16:30 or i might start on the doors followed by the tills and tidy at the end. H&M has taught me how to work under pressure as there are often long lines so I know how to remain calm and work efficiently in a stressful environment.I'd say managment ranges, I used to have a really good store manager who was really hands on and kept us all motivated and the department managers were quite good too. However, they all moved to different stores and my new store manager isn't as hands on and i find it quite hard to get their help on the shop floor. . I'd say the hardest part of the job is always having to work really hard and quickly it makes you feel exhausted after every shift and it can be really hard to work to their expectations when your not feeling 100%. I think the best part of the job is the discount as we recieve 25% employee discount that can be used in conjuciton with student discount when we have it and they will sometimes give you 50% off one shop up to £200/£250.They also often run mini competitions between the staff memembers such as who can make the most sales or who can sign up the most h&m members and they give rewards which keeps us more motivated as we have something to work towards. In addition meetings are quite good as they provide food and include games to keep you interested. They will also reward people with small gifts like chocolate or h&m gift vouchers for their work in these meetings.
Fast paced and enjoyable
H&M is a fast paced, customer focussed environment which is still made enjoyable thanks to the staff. Structured working days/weeks allow staff to plan their personal life too.
