. Every employee on the floor and in the back worked together to help each other out and were always available to offer their help. They are responsible for keeping their assigned rooms presentable, greeting customers, assisting customers when necessary by helping them find certain products, sizes, or colors. They tried to make the offer sound super appealing by stating that the makes employment practically by invitation only. The company gives no reason for its peculiar choice in rules and regulations but it seems that the policy should be revised after one too many visits to court. The veil is widely misunderstood and many do not know what it represents. Many potential employees are approached in the street and offered an interview, based on their appearance.
Many times these two separate terms are confused with each other. Despite what some might think, this job involves more than just folding clothes. The truth is, a discounted price is given to the employees in exchange for loyalty to that store. The fast pace of the busy environment was definitely a learning experience for me. The store was pretty mellow when there wasn't any holiday deals going on and it gave the employees enough time to get to know each other and work together in a more calm environment. You are hired to work on a 0 hour contract which is initially advertised as a benefit, however, managers fail to schedule in people they 'do not know' i.
It was really babysitting if you ask me. However, most people never considered this to be Pharmacy. In 2009 it announced it would shut down its upscale young adult brand Ruehl No. Hollister was a great first job for me. Although I learned a lot in terms of management skills and the general structure and process of a major retail chain store, the company never treats you with respect. This shows that the in-company graduate scheme that was once pined to be in has eroded into a hot mess where many of the managers weren't ever associates and have no understanding to the root problems within the store.
They also prefer that your skin is near enough flawless. The way they handle things are poor, instead of pulling you to aside and talking to you they argue with you in the middle of your shift. One woman said she was fired for refusing to remove her hijab, while another said she was never hired. But, just like regular teenagers, we can't afford to have our whole wardrobe be from Hollister regardless of our discount or paycheck! A misconception is a view that is incorrect because of faulty information. They simply need to be open minded and well informed in order to be successful on their assignment. The maximum shift hours they offer is 4 hours, which also means salary is not excellent. Uninformed businessmen are at a severe disadvantage due to nothing but ignorance itself.
As long as the clothes look similar in style, it is fine to wear. In 2008 Samantha Elauf, then 17 years old, wore her hijab when she interviewed for a job at an Abercrombie store in Tulsa, Oklahoma. A company with so much influence and power all over the world should be responsible for delivering the diversity and equality that everyone is due. A common misconception about Hollister is that we do not prosecute shoplifters, or that we do not care if employees or customers try to steal merchandise. I have worked for the company for 5+ years.
I learned a lot from working at Hollister with regards to customer services and team work. They hire a huge number of employees, meaning you are always meeting new people. Really long hours dealing with people. Many people think that we do not work hard and all we do is play and fool around. The justices sent the case back to the lower courts for adjudication on whether the company did, in fact, violate job discrimination laws. For example, we are not allowed to wear black; if an employee arrives to work wearing black clothing, he or she will be asked to change or will be sent home.
We had a manager who was known for making the customers empty their pockets or purses if the alarm went off when they were leaving. The young ladies are not allowed to wear makeup or jewelry that could be considered unnatural. We usually stock up on basic tees and jeans from any other store without the brand advertised on it. Stereotypes are caused by a small group giving a large group the wrong image. They are only there for discounts; so trying to get them to do things was super tough and annoying.
Another false impression that I wish were true is that the employees enjoy great pay. Women in Islam have rights and are not oppressed. Given the massive media and public outcry, the policy was revised and they now allow the Red Poppy to be worn on the day itself. Although we do have the privilege of being allowed to work in casual clothes, there are so many rules in our dress code and appearance policy that it is not as easy as a lot of people think to dress accordingly. Most, if not all, of the employees are either in high school or college and are incredibly intelligent individuals. Once, I had to ask a manager to tell a customer that we did not have the size she needed because I was afraid that she might become hostile toward me. Many stores have cameras that can be remotely accessed by district and corporate managers, former Abercrombie employees said.
