>>
what do you need to work there?
>>
>>9396384
How did you learn to play the register.

Also how do you prevent the brewin' of spaghetti storms?
>>
Is it true that you guys genocide Ethiopians?
Saw some episode about it on a Swedish documentary TV-show.

>>9396269
>>9396390
Why does your store encourage people wear virtually half their closet in the middle of a desert then?
>>
>>9396432
You need to be 18 and have a personality. They hire you if they think you're a good fit there
>>
>>9396437
I have good patience so I just deal with it, but when I can I call a manager and have them deal with it
>>
>>9396441
What? Lol. I never heard of that before
>>
>>9396447
Because they have to look good in the desert, of course
>>
>>9396449
looks like you need 6 months minimum retail experience
>>
>>9396472
"Need"
I didn't have an retail experience before this job. I did have customer service experience but only 5 months
>>
>>9396480
what if I have no experience?

Is there an H&M retail store in St. Paul, MN?
>>
>>9396510
Google it lol
>>
What are the shittier pieces in your eyes? What pieces are of better quality?
>>
Hello my nigga who also works at h&m
>>
>>9396458
"Last autumn H&M started clothing production in factories in Ethiopia where the salary is among the lowest in the world. On average 45$ per month."

"In the program it is shown how cotton that is used in H&M's factories is grown in areas where 'landgrabbing' occurs, that means the state assumes ownership of the area to grow for example rice and cotton"

"Human Rights Watch and the Oakland Institute report that the moving of the local population is done by the Ethiopian military and that there is often murder, rape and torture."

translated quotes from a swedish newspaper

>>9396441
>you guys
OP just works there ease up bruh, and wouldn't doubt that hm does/allows that
>>
>>9396269
are you ugly?
>>
>>9396578
yes
>>
Why does H&M only hire prepfags?

I showed up in my ricky dicky cape to impress them and I got escorted out by security and almost got charged with public nudity for the penis hole...
>>
what's your best product
>>
Is it true that you get 3 shipments per week of clothing per location?
>>
>>9396269
how about some stories about customer antics?
>>
>>9396527
Honestly, nothing there is actually shit tier. People just assume that because the prices are so slow. Yeah, you get what you pay for. But the stuff is made well and it will last for a while if you take care of it. And as long as you don't put the stuff in the drier. They shrink easily
>>
>>9396578
I wouldn't say so. Nor would my girlfriend
>>
>>9396611
$5.95 basics. Their plain t shirts are nice. The only downside is that they shrink so you need to air dry them
>>
>>9396625
Yeah that's true. Usually it has new stuff so older stuff gets pushed to sale. So if you want to cop a unique shirt (none of the basics, jeans, or button ups) I would wait a week or so and see if it's on sale
>>
H&M is for plebs

I'm hijacking this thread, ask someone who works at Urban Outfitters anything
>>
>>9396761
Urban Outfitters is the over-priced H&M
>prove me wrong
>>
>>9396441
I read once in a Korean crayon drawings board that they indeed do everything you saw on tv
>>
>>9396638
I have a few stories of how some of our customers are
>be me
>be closing
>one minute after we closed, manager asks me to stand by the entrance to let people know that we are closed
>2 women walk in
>"ma'am i'm sorry but we're closed"
>one of them says, "they how come they're in here?" while pointed at a man and his wife that are going in line to check out
>"because they were in here before we closed"
>she says "i just wanted to look at a skirt"
>"im sorry ma'am, we're closed. You can come tomorrow morning when we open"
>she freaks out
>runs out the store at yells "this store is bullshit!"
>every other store is fully closed in the mall (lights are off, gates are closed) and its very obvious to tell
People just try to do whatever they want
>>
>>9396761
UOs styling is consistently worse than H&M

at least H&M is basic. UO is often at least 2 years behind trends if they even pick up on them.
>>
>>9396780
I've heard their quality is shit for what you pay too
>>
You guys realize H&M is its own brand and UO is a department store full of various different brands?

It doesn't sound like you realize this.
>>
>>9396767
Nah it's more like overpriced thrift stuff. My store is in a somewhat wealthy area so we just get a bunch of wealthy hipsters/tumblr girls/hypebeasts. They're all chill though, no one comes in expecting the price to be really low, so we don't get a lot of people asking for a discount for no reason, or complaining about the price. One time some faggot was trying to barter the price though.. smh

>>9396780
Our basics(for women) is actually one of our best sellers. At least in my store.

>>9396783
Quality is on par with what you pay. I don't buy anything though, even with my discount.
>>
>>9396269
what's the job interview like? and what did you wore for it?
>>
>>9396800
So I assume you're not required to wear your own stuff? I'm glad I don't have to
>>
>>9396798
>UO is a department store full of various different brands

Kind of. They do stock third party stuff, but a ton of their stuff (e.g. BDG, Feathers, Salt Valley, and any other brands you don't recognize) are actually house labels that are manufactured by contract for UO.
>>
>>9396807
It was pretty relaxed. I had two interviews in total, but my second interview was the job offer so I'm not sure if that counts. They just ask general interview questions to get to know you. I wore blue skinny jeans, a short sleeve button up shirt and Toms
>>
>>9396808
Shit I mean Urban Outfitters clothes
>>
>>9396816
>blue skinny jeans
Can you seriously wear jeans at an interview?
>>
>>9396447
that could easily be a beach, and if a beach exists where there is significant wind, you can get bright cold days
>>
>>9396830
They tell you to dress how you normally would. They hire people for who they are. They wouldn't give a shit if I came in with a tuxedo on or gym shorts
They just want to figure out who you are to see if you're a good fit
>>
I'm making 15 an hour answering phones for the customer support hotline for a major appliance company in the us.

Should i quit and try hampersandm?
>>
>>9396808
Nah you can wear whatever you want. It's p chill actually one time I came in looking fucked up covered in cat hair wearing sweats and a simple tee, no fucks given that horrible morning.
>ralph semens, ricardo owens usually what im dressed in tho

>>9396809
Yeah, our Urban Renewal is the biggest scheme we do though. Our company goes to thrift shops and buys a bunch of stuff for like 5 cents and resells them under UR brand. But hey people buy that stuff up like crazy
>>
>>9396834
Curious if they hire fatties.
Are there any overweight coworkers?
>>
>>9396836
It depends if money is a huge concern of yours. I'm earning just over $10 an hour
>>
>>9396841
Yes, a few. They're cool
>>
>>9396843
Yuck.

I make $5 more and have the privilege of never having to see anyone face-to-face in person. I literally just sit there and answer the phone.

Nevermind.
>>
>>9396853
If that's what you like then stick with it. I get bored easily so I like how much I move around and interact with people. And since I don't rely on this money to live, i'm in a good position
>>
>>9396853
>not interacting with your customers or coworkers
>not making connections for parties/drugs/qts
>not working at the fitting room
>not being asked by qts how they look in their short dresses or shorts
>not telling them, "let's see the back" and looking at dat ass
>not helping them zip up their dresses
>not flirting with them after wards and it turns out you guys share the same birthday week and asking her out for drinks

Disgusting
>>
>>9396867
PUA faggot detected

how many times a day do you get called a creep by women?
>>
>>9396867
>having to wade through 15 fatties trying to squeeze into ill-fitting outfits to find 1 attractive qt so poor she shops at h&m
>>
>>9396867
Virgin/10
that's not how retail is, brother
>>
is it worth getting a shirt and slacks if i just need it for class speeches?
>>
>>9396867
not sure if underage b& or just plain retarded
>>
>>9396896
Yep. Basic button ups are $14.95 each, and slacks are about $24.95 each
>>
>>9396904
>>9396890
>>9396877
>>9396878
can't you faggots take a joke?
>>
>>9396877
Pick Up Artist? I only try to make conversation with people. The rest is really up to the flow and vibe that I get from that person. Do you even know what flirting is like? Have you ever experienced it? Btw catcalling is not flirting.

>>9396878
Actually UO employee here

>>9396890
Admittedly it doesn't go like this all the time. But the people are really nice and I've certainly made friends with customers before. I met my current drug dealer while helping him with some shoes.

>>9396904
How so?
>>
>>9396915
You can definitely make friends while working, but its not going to be like how that anon described it
>>
>>9396915
>flirting while working at retail

nice way to get fired
>>
>>9396915
>>9396867
This is me

>>9396921
And I can assure you all that stuff has certainly happened. Given that though, I have worked at other retail places and they are way worse. Most customers are shit and managers expect you to break your back working for them. But idk it's chill at UO bro

>>9396924
>meanwhile I'm still employed
>not smoking with your managers after work and talking shit about customers with them

Actually one of my managers was tryna spark up tonight but it's way too cold to make the mission to her place
>>
>>9396931
which UO do you work at?
>>
>>9396931
At my H&M the managers do a lot of our work. They jump on registers to help if the lines are getting long, or clean up after customers
>>
>>9396937
>implying I'd tell you

>>9396940
Yeah I was talking about the other retail places I've worked at. Our managers at UO do the same.

Anyways guys I'm out this joint, giving the thread back to H&M guy
>>
>>9396608

>>9396608
There's only one prepfag that works at our store, so its probably your location

i once wore a 3 piece suit to a burger king interview because my grandma said so and i didn't get the job
>>
>>9396952
That's fucking hilarious
>>
>>9396952
You probably showed too much potential. I applied to a local McDonalds and on the application they asked what my GPA was in high school
>3.5
And they asked what career I wanted to go in
>Mechanical Engineering
I never got a call from them. I think fast food restaurants hire people that are going to be sticking around for a long time and show little to no aspirations
>>
>>9396952
lmao
>>
>>9396952
what color was the suit bro? thanks for the laugh btw
>>
>>9396959
>>9396961
>>9396971
>>9396962
suit was black. my mom got it for me at sears for my grandpa's funeral
>>
>>9396761
I work at a UO as well. Which store?
>>
any robbery stories?
>>
>>9396830
A nice pair of jeans are plenty formal for almost any part time job interview, you mong
>>
>>9397084
Nope, not yet. Someone did try paying with a fake $100, though
>>
>>9397114
was it too obvious?
and you do realize people steal from stores everyday (including myself, I particularly find h&m the easiest store to rob)
>>
I am trying to bring a old white tee and jacket over it and steal one white tee and leave my old tee there, will they catch me ?
>>
>>9397162
if theres no one in the dressing room maybe
you gotta obviously not have your white shirt visible
and youre going to have to rip the alarm (if you dont have something to take it out) just sew the hole at your house later
in h&m the tags are really shitty, you can swap them putting it through the same hole, it shouldnt break, and swap it with a different shirt thats cheaper obviously (same size just in case)
>>
fits is full
>>
dear faggot,

why do you guys suck so much compared to C&A?

At least C&A has actual expressive design choices while H&M is Basic Bitch United. Seriously though, the clothes have no sass whatsoever. you might as well be naked instead of wearing H&M garbage.
>>
>>9396608
top kek
>>
>>9396269
when some overdressed dadcore fedora fatty asks you for advice, do you bite your tongue and tell him that he looks good or do you try to convert him out of mfa madness?
>>
>>9397162
nigger if you're gonna break the law and steal a basic t-shirt from h&m you need to re evaluate your life.

Is a 5 dollar shirt worth the criminal record if you get caught ? Go steal something worth having.

I live in Broward County and it really sucks that the closest H&M is like an hour away. i tried buying a biker online but it'd always fit weird so i gave up
>>
>>9397571

I actually never lowered myself into entering a C&A store, so I couldn't tell what their clothes look like
>>

Ah. I'm at a store in Jersey.

>tfw your wardrobe is increasingly becoming a UO showcase

They don't pay me enough to get good stuff ;_;

why do only 14 year old kids, who call me a nigger in CoD wear your apparal?

Yeah lol I try not to buy stuff from the store.... Only have a couple of things now, but apparently for the February month you can get I think 3 items? For like 60% off...might cop them expensive candles
