    I have been working at Hot Topic part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Everything!!! I love being challenged and I continue to grow with a higher business acumen every day. The merchandise is great and I am so excited about the license product we have.

    Cons

    None that I can think of

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am reading some negative reviews on here and I am just beside myself. This company has given me so many great things to be proud of. Those complaining are just disgruntled or were fired. How could you not love this job? My district manager is invested in me and treats me like s human being. Where he is tough, he is also respectful and cares about me. I couldn't ask for a better boss. I absolutely love my Store Manager. She gives me the tools I need to get the job done. She is and will be amazing for my growth. My store is upbeat and we know how to get it done!!!!

    I worked at Hot Topic full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    You get an excellent discount, so this comes in handy when they want you to promote the items in the store. Fun music.

    Cons

    They try to start you at the very bottom of minimum wage. The managers are sneaky. Hard to get a promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more! Management decides how much they want to start you off at but they choose the bare bottom! Also, management in the store I worked at constantly stole and when it was reported the DM said to mind your own business! Terrible terrible practices at this company.
