    Very entrepreneurial environment, smart and humble people, and relaxed atmosphere.

    Start-up company so did not have the same name recognition. Bonus that it is a Virgin Group company.

    Pros

    Fun environment
    Enjoyed learning about new music

    Cons

    Low pay, with few raises (.25 cents after a year)
    Frequently understaffed
    Management is non very hands-on
    Annoying customers
    Too many closing tasks

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure the stores are well staffed enough - I was sometimes one of two people in the entire store working the floor and registers (and the store was huge)
    Increase the pay and raises
