    I worked at hmv full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The working environment was really good, a lot of the employees were around my age (Early 20's), we also all had a shared interest in Film, Music and some of us games.

    Management broke the day up into hour blocks, so you could be on tills for an hour and then be on queue patrol. I think this was a good idea because it kept the day interesting and I didnt get bored doing the same job for 8 hours straight.

    There was also the opportunity for overtime. I was employed over Christmas, so I don't know how much overtime is available all year round.

    Cons

    You were constantly under pressure to push sales, I know understand this is because they were going into administration.
