    I have been working at hmv part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people, my love for music was supported, great customers, passion for what I sold

    Cons

    No room for advancement. I was with the company for 3 years, and was sent to help run other stores. I was constantly give hope that I would advance, but nothing ever came up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    District Managers, Regional Managers, HO staff - Treat your store staff better. Dont take them for granted. A little encouragement goes a long way.
