I have been working at Hastings Entertainment part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The job itself is easy, your costumers are friendly most of the time. You make a friendship with your fellow coworkers easily.

Cons

The pay is not good. Now maybe if your in high school or college and you dont have a family it maybe ok for you. The pay for this town is not the best.

Advice to Management

The CSM is not on top of things...I think that makes the store lack.

    Pros

    The customers were great overall, they became family. The employees that I worked with also became my family.

    Cons

    Labor restrictions, low pay, poor recognition.

    Advice to Management

    Open up a little bit on the labor budget. It takes labor to earn labor.


  2. Great hours, great coworkers, terrible business.

    Pros

    Hours were very flexible and my coworkers were amazing. I enjoyed selling product I liked and had an interest in. If you just want a part-time job and don't need money all that badly, this is an alright place to work.

    Cons

    The wage freeze is ridiculous. A manager friend, a woman who had worked for them for five years, was still making $7.25 at a time when new hires were being paid $7.75. The company changed its policy for high-shrink stores in ways that didn't really make sense. Upper management seemed disconnected with individual stores.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the needs of, and what works for, individual stores. And pay your employees, please. Other places give raises at three to six months; even .25 would have been nice.
