    Pros

    you met awesome people (both other employees that you worked with and the occasional famous person), the discount was alright

    Cons

    corporate office down to managers were incredibly pushy with sales and would write you up for not up-selling products at cash, the stores are always a mess, the overhead radio plays all of twenty songs over and over again until you've gone crazy, the customers are rude, the backrooms are chaotic and dangerously messy, hard to take time off, hours are always being cut, no benefits for a full year (even if you are full time)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop treating your employees like garbage - brand loyalty is not established with pushy sales people that are constantly terrified that they'll lose their jobs for not selling enough product

    Pros

    Hmv has a flexible for staff if you are a music/dvd lover you find some good obscure stuff. Managers usually try to accomodate you as best as you can.

    Cons

    Higher ups at HMV didn't adapt and see the changes coming and now place is going under. Most senior staff saw it for a while.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should listen to staff and adapt to trends quicker and faster. Might be too late but good luck to HMV.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
