    I worked at hmv full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.

    I have been working at hmv full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working with products you're genuinely (and sometimes fanatically) interested in. Working alongside people from all walks of life but who share the same interests. Lots of opportunities in store to talk to customers and use your knowledge to make recommendations. Lots of head office staff have been sales assistants, supervisors, managers in the stores, so you'll find lots of people who are really passionate about the company in all corners of the business. Staff discount!

    Cons

    The outlook for the company seems to be positive but it's hard to shake off the 'ailing retailer' label!

    I worked at hmv part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Super-friendly staff, management were always lovely, even when asking you to do "boring" jobs. They give till training and are always willing to help if you need it! Discount was great, comfortable with switching shifts. Working there was very pleasant and g a 6 hour shift during christmas period wasn't as bad as it sounds!

    Cons

    Salary wasn't as good as it could've been, christmas period was busy and some customers can be very rude at a shop like this.
