H&M, one of the world’s largest fashion retail companies, is planning to open a location at the Charlottetown Mall in the fall of 2016.
“We are planning to hire approximately 50 staff,” says Annalyn De Silva, Senior Talent Acquisition Specialist, H&M.
- Department Manager
- Visual Merchandiser
- Full-Time Sales Advisor
- Part-Time Sales Advisor
What general background do you look for in potential candidates?
“We look for candidates who have the same values as us. As a global company, everything we do is centered around our values. And we use this as a gauge when meeting and interviewing potential candidates.
“It also helps if you love fashion, want to provide customers with the best shopping experience and thrive in a fast paced environment.”
Training and development programs
“No matter the role, everyone joining the organization goes through Sales Advisor training. Our management training program is an intensive 12 weeks. Our managers go through everything from visual to financial to leadership training.”
“For starters, all permanent employees get their birthday off. And it’s paid! We offer a rewarding total compensation package. Beyond that, we offer our employees the opportunity to grow and develop and try new things. A career at H&M is exactly that… a career with room to grow in any of our local or international markets.”
Future hopes and plans for the business on PEI
“We’ve already fallen in love with PEI and hopefully, this is only the beginning. The response from the local population has already been incredibly warm and welcoming, and we’re excited to be able to provide our future customers on PEI with affordable fashion for the whole family.
