    I have been working at Hot Topic part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -No Dresscode!
    -Easy daily task
    -Team members super easy to get along with
    -Awesome employee discount on everything including clearance (some restrictions)
    -concert ticket reimbursement

    The lead singer of Woe Is Me used to work at my store! And still comes to visit every know and then!!
    This is one company that you have to make work for you.

    Cons

    -If youre at a small (low volume) store you won't get a lot of hours
    -sales can change at the drop of a dime

    Sometimes when sales change the night beforeas an associate you'll have to quickly adapt to new promos and that can be a challenge for some ppl...

    Advice to Management

    I am apart of management so.....keep up the good work lol

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

    Pros

    pretty simple job at all positions, get to listen mostly to the kind of music you like (assuming you like metal) great discount, will easily work around a personal schedule (band practice and shows ect), doesn't take long to get promoted if your'e good

    Cons

    low pay but that's average, pretty much only way in is starting seasonal and working up, the style of the store has changed a lot in the last few years and isn't what i used to be

    Advice to Management

    store managers, keep your cool when dealing with exchanges and returns, the little mall rats and their parents don't know any better.
