What people are saying about sick pay at H&M

  • Best thing

    Getting to talk to people and learn about fashion, seeing new clothes and trends.

    Worst thing

    Bad environment, no AC/heating, managers talk down on people, rude staff members, very boring, very tiring and repetitive, very short breaks for long shifts.


    H&M Sales advisor, June 2022

  • Best thing

    Being in a happy environment, managers are always very respectful and polite.

    Worst thing

    I don’t really have any worst things, but perhaps the unpaid breaks but it’s understandable why they’re unpaid


    H&M Sales advisor, February 2022

  • Best thing

    Teaches skills especially in such a fast paced environment

    Worst thing

    Generally understaffed, a pain to book holidays, breaks not paid
