    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

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Hastings Entertainment in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online. They called the next day to invite me in for an interview. The interview was held at their cafe. The interview itself wasn't difficult. But in the end, I applied for a position I was qualified for and they offered me a different position. I accepted their offer and they were surprised when I wasn't qualified for the position I did not apply for.
