Having worked for H&M for several weeks,
there were many things I’ve learned about the company…
Their points of view…
Perspectives on leadership…
and the many opportunities provided.
I started my training at the Columbus Circle Location 
(which in my opinion is the best store to shop!!)…
FLASHBACK!
About two weeks after my group interview, I had my final interview with the hiring manager and a store manager of another location. They had me walk one of the stores and share what it was that I noticed that needed to be updated…
That moment was used to determine my ideologies and priorities as a store leader.
At the end of that small project, I learned that the store manager I spent that precious hour with was my potential manager, and I had gotten the job as well as my job offer in that day!
FAST-FORWARD!!
H&M prides itself in leadership and advancement. Anyway that you can execute that.
LET THEM KNOW!
I was able to train and learn what H&M looks for in the hiring process. Whether you’re going for a Sales Advisor, Visual Merchandiser, Department Manager, or Store Manager; to ensure your experience is successful, display in as many ways as you possibly can your form of leadership.
MY personal questions I’d ask during interviews are:

“At your previous job, how did you take the lead in a difficult situation?”

“Explain a moment where your co-worker challenged your direction”

“Tell me about a time when you were able to motivate an unhappy co-worker” 

 Lastly, the biggest piece of information I could share!
Make sure you pay close attention during the online questionnaire.
It’s not just something to pass by…
THAT questionnaire determines whether or not you’ll get that call back and why.
Make sure all of your answers are as independent and solution oriented as possible.
Although, the truth reveals itself in the survey.
This post is intended to inform interested applicants and not to infringe on the policy and procedures of H&M.
