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

Pros

Relatively simple job, fair amount of computer training to prep for company values. 25% off employee discount, used to offer 1 free paperback book per week.

Cons

Management seems more concerned with sales and value of customer than appreciating employees, both through low wages (and little room to improve those wages) and policies. Job can go from being very boring to overwhelming very quickly, and there is little internal support among employees. Training is also so focused on "values" that little time is left for practical application, particularly on their outdated computer system!

Advice to Management

Be a little more caring about your employees--if they feel appreciated, that will improve customer relations.

    Pros

    The tips I got from working at the cafe…that was it!

    Cons

    The people! Your coworkers, your MANAGER!
    They have a open door policy but its not really a open door policy as soon as you have a problem and you are being harassed. You will be pushed so far to be fired! they don't fired they just move you till you will quit! They disrespect their employers. Its horrible. The cafe is the worst place to work, you work 8 hours at a time because nobody including your manager would come in and would receive no thank yous or support! Only a write up for the first thing you do wrong. Beware "team leaders" have favorites!!!

    Advice to Management

    Clearly you need to clear up the work staff in this place!

    I have been working at Hastings Entertainment part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good discount on some items, coworkers can be nice,

    Cons

    store is mostly run on part time employees, so of course no benefits, low hours
    hours are based on how much junk you can sell, not how hard you work.
