I have been working at Hastings Entertainment full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Other employees are usually pleasant to work with.
Flexible schedules.
Full-time benefits.

Cons

Low pay.
Product constantly getting stolen.
Rare, or no raises.
The Waco building is in constant disrepair (leaking ceilings, mismatching carpets, bathrooms falling apart, old air vents constantly spewing dust, etc.). This makes it nearly impossible to keep your department clean and presentable.
Due to the nature of the store (carrying a lot of old used stuff you can't find at Target or Walmart), customers are extremely needy and often won't even bother looking for an item before they ask an associate to find it for them.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

A lot of employees are either getting second jobs or leaving for somewhere that will pay them more. Also, at this particular location (Waco), the building is the store's biggest enemy. It's extremely old, falling apart, and the landlord does not repair anything in reasonable time.

    I worked at Hastings Entertainment part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Employees were great, customers both good and bad.

    Cons

    Poor wages, degrading treatment by management and corporate. Every problem was because of employees as as told by management. a Yo yo style of hours given, then taken away. Yet all tasks were still expected to be done with out sufficient, manpower

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quality of treatment of employees builds a solid company
