Fun place to work, hard place to pay your bills via

Customer Service Associate (Former Employee)
Moscow, ID

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

ProsHastings 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.

ConsThe 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
