    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 Pretty low stress Good coworkers Relatively easy job Liked being able to read the books and magazines

    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 Management

    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
