I have been working at Hot Topic part-time
fun to work, got good discount
not enough hours, low pay
I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Hot Topic (Baltimore, MD) in September 2014.
The interview was geared toward leadership oriented questions. The interviewer was extremely friendly and personable, and the interview felt more conversational than most. Overall a good experience, and I love working for the company now!
