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

    Pros

    Decent management where I was at. Easy to talk to, nice to get along with. Definitely get a nice discount for clothing; easy to upgrade your wardrobe in a few paychecks.

    Cons

    Customers can be jerks. Sometimes, managing customer requests means running to and back from a manager for assistance. Managing items in the back or front can get tiring and annoying. Young kids (middle school to early high school) are both the most frequent spenders and most annoying experience you'll have in retail.

    Advice to Management

    Change the way some things are handled. Give employee's a bit more control in terms of managing customers and life becomes easier for everyone.
