    Pros

    Good Benefits Good discounts Opportunity for advancement Up to date with music, movies & other entertainment Get to sell great music to the masses

    Cons

    Long hours Monthly set-ups of restocking/changing sale sections Constant moving/price changing/re-merchandising of product Endless promotions to memorize sale procedures for Working Christmas Eve, New Years Eve, Boxing Day, all at unreasonable hours of the morning/night

    Advice to Management

    I am a leader and it's hard work to try and keep up with all the bullcrap that is HMV. A leader has to be very much dedicated to this company and all the work that surrounds selling cds/dvd's and whatever else. It's nuts i tells ya.

    Former Employee - Stock Clerk in Pickering, ON (Canada)
    Former Employee - Stock Clerk in Pickering, ON (Canada)
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    It's a comfortable pace, you get to work around a music minded environment, helping people find the newest Celine Dion album is ultra rewarding.

    Cons

    Minimum wage jobs suck. You are in a busy mall over the holidays earning only enough money to get yourself home on the bus and if lucky a meal while you are there.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you do... taking advantage of consumers with your overpriced, outdated technology.
