    I worked as a barista - don't work here unless you are legitimately going to starve otherwise

    I worked at Hastings Entertainment part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    People I worked with were great
    Discount is nice if you shop at the store often

    Cons

    From the first month or so of working there I was counting down the days until I could leave. Upper level management is so out of touch it's ridiculous. We were supposed to do tasks that were, in all reality, impossible to finish with the hours we were given, and were punished when they weren't. When I was hired, over 3/4s of the previous staff had quit, which I probably should have recognized as a strong warning sign. When I was working there (about 5 months) at least 10 people quit, some of whom had been with the store for many years. Staying until at least 12:30 or even 1AM on closing nights wasn't super uncommon even though I would only be scheduled until 11:30 because store hours were so low. Sexual harassment by the store manager was a running joke among the girls who worked there. Multiple girls complained about him to the supplied hotline and nothing was done about it. It's the most thankless job imaginable. From the moment I stepped into the building, I always felt like management was always upset at all their employees for not meeting some arbitrary standard. I worked in the cafe portion, so maybe my experience was a bit different. In the cafe, there was virtually no training period. You worked with other cafe staff for maybe 3 or 4 shifts and then you're expected to work by yourself and serve people from an extensive drink menu. If one of the drinks wasn't ordered during your training shift, too bad. Also, there was virtually no way to call in sick because the store was so understaffed. If you couldn't find anyone to cover for you, you had to show up and work. I remember hearing more than one person say they'd actually thrown up during their shift because they couldn't take the day off. Boy, do I have stories about that place! The point is DON'T WORK HERE.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please hire more competent store managers who don't sexually harass their female employees and understaff the store and get upset when it doesn't operate like it's fully staffed. Treat your employees like they're people with lives.
