    Positive Outlook

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


    Verizon excels at providing opportunities to learn and grow. They provide an excellent compensation program with great benefits.


    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.

    Christmas Sales Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Ipswich, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at hmv (Ipswich, England (UK)) in November 2015.


    Quite an informal interview. Waited in staff room for the manager to see if the supervisor was ready as the interview was with both of them. Was very friendly, made me feel very comfortable. Talked about previous experience, asked me a few questions then told me what the job role included.
