    I have been working at Hastings Entertainment

    Pros

    Great products, good executives, 45 hour work week, lots of potential for movement in the company, lots of autonomy and ability to make decisions in your store

    Cons

    Staffing structure needs to be reworked, DM's can be hit or miss (although most are good), compensation could be higher

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at how store staffing is structered, maintaining stores to company standards can be difficult with current pay rates/staff levels. One associate covering the entire floor is not realistically able to maintain merchandising, customer service, and lp standards that company values

    Very nice interview, laid back and simple. Another interview tomorrow. The guy was very nice and we talked about previous jobs, customers and nerd stuff . I was asked fun questions about time travelling and superheros. I felt it went really well and I am excited for tomorrow. After this interview I want the job so much!
