Fun at the start but like having your head sandpapered after a while...

Pros

Working with such a fun & exciting product, you would think makes an exciting environment to work right? Well, no. Not when its His masters voice. Only HMV could turn the stocking of CD's, DVD's & Games into such a laborious mire of tedium.

Cons

The demands placed on you will burn you out. HMV has a corporate environment that frankly makes the third reich seem relaxed. Recent years have not been kind, with most savvy employees heading toward the exit door. All that are left are a bunch of clueless, overpromoted, beaurocratic, soulless individuals more interested in their own careers than the company. An interest in music, film & games is paid occasional lip service, but to be honest, it feels hollow & contrivied. Besides, you'll spend most of your day blindly ticking boxes anyway.

    Pros

    Verizon excels at providing opportunities to learn and grow. They provide an excellent compensation program with great benefits.

    Cons

    At the time of my RIF (Reduction in Force), there were no positions available here in Tampa. As I had no desire to relocate, I had to accept the layoff.

    Advice to Management

    I desire a position that test my skills, makes my think outside the box and provides a path for promotion. I desire that the company that employs me is as flexible to my needs as they expect me to be to their needs. I want to be part of a team that want to do more than what is required.

    Pros

    Fun environment, friendly colleagues. Everyday is new and exciting. One of the best retail experience i've ever had. Employee discounts is welcomed

    Cons

    Management is disorganized, employees have to go beyond their role. Lack of understanding when changing shifts. Continually find reasons to critiicize.

    Advice to Management

    Look at each individual as a person, not a statistic. If they hate customer service, then ultimately should reconsider their career path. Having the feeling of being too good and above your position is disheartening to employees.
