    I worked at Hollister Co. part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Managers are not stingy with compliments and when you aren't doing something well enough, they try to help and guide instead of simply reprimanding you. Also enjoyed the culture of allowing staff to have fun and joke around a little; it really helped make work more fun and make everyone enjoy work. My managers were also really supportive when I informed them I was moving cities and even offered to keep me in the system so that I could transfer stores in my new city,

    Cons

    It is still a retail gig and difficult customers will always be a part of retail.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Hollister Co. full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pay is good during slower seasons. Provides wide range of experience for new grads. Highly diverse team. Bonuses are good when achieved. Hourly wage can be better than salary when over time is involved! District manager is very helpful and involved trying their best to help within their means

    Cons

    Bonus are based on beating last Years numbers in declining retail market so mostly unattainable. Company growth seems to cap at store manager in Canada. Work life balance is hard with shift work.
