Managers give hours based on social status in the workplace rather than work ethic, nepotism runs rampant in hiring as well as promoting. Pettiness and cattiness among management leads to a toxic work environment where employees and customers alike are gossiped about and made fun of.|
40% discount on emo merch, no dress code
no hours, bad management, toxic work environment, no career advancement
Learned a lot about customer service and how to be outgoing. Helped me become more comfortable with interacting with people. Not enough shifts to be able to live a comfortable lifestyle with. Been there for years and have never received a promotion or raise.
no hours to work
While long the day can be rewarding. Some days it's fast or slow depending on the time of day. Security tagging, folding clothes, price tagging, answering questions. Management is nice but I have not met the regional manager yet. Direct bosses are chill. The store gets odd people a lot but that comes with the territory. However the questions get repetitive after a while. Not knowing where everything is is one of the hardest parts as we have stuff in different places a lot. We, as employees, can dance, sing, be odd during work hours as long as it's appropriate.
Good discounts, easy dress code
Limited hours, weird customers

I had so much fun working at Hot Topic. Coworkers are people who have similar interests and can help you learn more about certain topics. A typical day is helping customers find their size in clothing, as well as suggesting gifts for a customer's friends or family.
Good music while you work.
Love the company. Everyone is always so welcoming and happy, you can easily make friends and want to come back the next day, able to find a sort of family that has the same interests as you do.
it was my first real job in highschool. i loved the environment and everything about it i would still be there today had it not been for the management change that happened late 2016 who wasn't nice to anyone (75%) of the staff quit months after he arrived update now the store has new management and a healthier environment
It was a fun company and product but they have to many weird policy's. not so great if you want to work 2 jobs at the same time. too many weird rules that they run there company.
not enough hours, weird policy's
A typical day at Hot Topic starts on the sales floor, where the customer comes first. Selling on the floor takes priority over selling at the registers, however selling at the registers is always encouraged. You help customers, and/or ring customers through, while keeping the store clean. There are often tasks to complete during the day, such as mark downs or stock. I learned a lot at this job, both about pop culture and the work environment. I learned the most efficient way to keep stores clean, how to put away stock quickly and effectively, how to prevent customer theft using customer service skills (a huge thing with the company is prevention before apprehension), how to tailor each experience with each individual customer, etc. You meet so many people through Hot Topic, people of all ages and cultures, likes and dislikes. For the most part, management is excellent. They are understanding and good at their jobs but occasionally make mistakes with things like scheduling. The workplace culture is excellent, Hot Topic employees are a very friendly group. The workplace isn't clique-y, and most people have similar or the same interests. It makes it better to work with people who love different things, for example if a customer asks a question pertaining to anime I can easily refer them to a different employee who knows a lot about anime. The hardest part of the job is the frequency of which they change promotions and change the way the store looks. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting paid to talk about the things you love with other people who love them.
Discount, Hours are flexible
Not A Lot of Hours
I was so torn about leaving Hot Topic. I absolutely loved the customers & culture, but management was an absolute disaster. If they didnt like you they would write you up and give a verbal for the smallest things (ie: not walking fast enough) & make your life and job seem so disposable. There were multiple times that I went home from work crying because management took their problems out on me by doing things such as yelling at me in front of customers, questioning my intelligence, & just generally being rude. Some stores may have better management than the one I worked at, but I think the corporation as a whole creates these absolute monsters. My store had a revolving door of new employees because so many quit (management being the largest area of movement). I wanted to love this job so much but the bipolarity and childishness of management was too much for me to handle.
management, work & life balance
I enjoyed my time at hot topic, most of the staff was kind and hard working. communication was lacking though. my favourite part of the job was meeting new faces everyday and bonding over topics with customers.
Hot Topic is a great environment! I’ve worked here for almost 2 years part-time and I have yet to be disappointed. The staff are fantastic, everyone is so easy to talk to and connect with. Customers are great for the most part, and we’re highly encouraged to start conversations about our shared interests with them. It’s a simple but fun job. They only offer part-time hours for non-managers, which is the head office’s policy, so I can’t complain. It always works out for me personally. My one nitpick is managment should rework how they train new staff. I was only taught how to fold a shirt and nothing else, I had to learn everything as I went along which was a little stressful, especially when I first got put on the cash register. I still learn new things to this day that I probably should already know but haven’t been taught. Overall I’m glad I get to work here, and I see myself being here for a long time.
great atmosphere, 40% discount, flexible scheduling
occasional rude customers, poor training
Its a great place to get along with employees and customers a like. they are good with making sure your work schedule doesn't convey into your life schedule. if you are into pop culture and enjoy working but having a good time, this is the place for you
My time spent at hot topic only came to an end due to a management issue. In which I was going to HR about. I absolutely loved my job with the company and would go back in a heartbeat
Its like a family
Not always nice management
