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

    Pros

    It was very difficult for me to find something redeeming from the experience I had at HMV (Upper Canada Mall). I must say I learned about the challenges that store managers face in order to meet sales target demands from head office.

    Cons

    I was let go after only a week working there. I was told I wasn't a good fit. I was never offered any specific feedback about my performance. Communication and team-building were not encouraged very much at the store.

    Advice to Management

    Promotional tools may or may not increase sales revenue. Understanding the target market's needs and wants will. This requires more than the use of tired promotional tools like loyalty points programs.


  2. "Overall happy"

    Must always keep up to date with new releases for films, music and tech, easy for full timers, more difficult for part timers.
