I worked at Hot Topic part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Lots of exposure to different types of music, as well as sneak peaks to new albums about to be released.

The employee discount can really help you save a load off of merchandise, and the store frequents sends freebies to its employees.

Cons

Customers come in with certain store expectations - being a goth scene, carrying hipster music, etc. Not always the nicest.

Sometimes requires overnight work, especially when moving merchandise, doing mark downs, and packaging old product.

Advice to Management

Be more open with your employees. They want to help.
