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

Pros

Hastings has a fun environment, a decent discount and will almost certainly have -something- in the store which the employees can get excited about, making for a better customer time.

Cons

The pay was subpar and the store is run almost exclusively on part-time labor. The only people who got full-time were supervisors and management. The rest of the employees hours are erratic, both in number and placement.

    I worked at Hastings Entertainment full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good discount, a lot of flexibility with schedule if you have a good manager

    Cons

    After 10 years with the company I learned that it is all about your store manager. If you have a good manager, they do their best to shield their associates from the idiocy coming from the corporate offices. They also had a wage freeze in effect for about 3 years when I quit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make smarter decisions, pay your people, and don't blame the little guys for the big guys mistakes. You can't cut labor back to nothing and still have everything get done.
