    StarStarStarStarStar Former Store Manager in Longview, Texas

    Insurance wasn't very good, but was very cheap. PTO was great, but hard to take at times due to having so much going on. If you like Hot Topic, the employee discount is amazing.

    It’s great how they reimburse you completely for how much you paid for a concert ticket (as long as the concert is someone they sell merch of) as long as you bring in your ticket receipt and take pictures of the band and crowd

    I personally think it’s cool to work there. But this is my first experience working there. But the workers are really sweet and they treat you like friends and I like that
