Sales/Stockroom Assistant (Former Employee) – Middlesbrough – 8 August 2018
As a company they can be quite strict. With a lot of paperwork involved, at times. Personally I loved working in that environment, with Entertainment Products. I think the company has changed a lot since I worked for them. So I'm not sure what they are like to work for these days.
Getting to listen to new Music releases early, . They pay over NLW
Stockroom Assistant (Former Employee) – Tyne and Wear – 14 June 2018
During the short space of time at which I spent at HMV I worked in a small group which organised the stock production and deliveries. I learned to quickly adapt to given roles and how to fit into small groups to assure the production line ran smoothly and orderly. I thoroughly enjoyed this as it was a new experience meaning I could build on my skills and experience new work place settings.
Stockroom Assistant (Current Employee) – Uxbridge – 18 February 2018
A typical day at HMV is constantly learning something new in an environment that is both nurturing and encouraging. I have learnt so much whilst working at HMV that I believe I can apply everywhere in and out of work.
Good, fun, friendly working environment, tasks were well explained for beginning workers, would work there again. Tasks involved putting stickers on products, stacking shelves, helping customers. Management was good. Learned basics about working in a shop.
Seasonal Stockroom Assistant (Former Employee) – Eastbourne, East Sussex – 10 March 2017
From the get go I did nothing but enjoy my brief time at HMV: the staff were the friendliest bunch of people I've ever met; the workload always kept me busy and intrigued; and I was always learning new things about the job. Ultimately it never felt like work and not once did I dread going in (I loved it so much I often stayed for an unpaid hour on my shorter shifts). Excellent place to work.
Hour-long lunches, friendly staff, each day always different, never feels like work
Stockroom Controller / Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Poole – 28 July 2016

Stockroom Assistant (Former Employee) – Portsmouth – 4 April 2016
The day would of consisted of sticking labels onto items, before they are stocked onto the shelves. The management were very helpful and forgiving. Co-workers were fun and enjoyable. Couldn't say that I didn't get a good laugh or two each that passed. Co-workers were also very helpful when it came to the tasks I was given. The hardest part of the job was most likely when I was given a stack of CD's and a large roll of labels. The most enjoyable part was most likely when I was handed a box of unused items to tear apart and throw away.
Enjoyed my work experience as part of the Prince's Trust course
Stockroom Assistant (Former Employee) – Brighton, ENG – 18 August 2015
As it was only work experince as part of the course I was on, I didnt get paid for it, but I enjoyed myself regardless.
Most of the time I was spent helping in the stockroom, preparing stock to go out on the shop floor, which involved: placing price tags on CDs, DVDs and other merchandise, folding T-shirts to go out on theshop floor and placing security tags onto the stock. I also helped with anything that needed returning which was basically the opposite to preparing stock to go out.
When I did go out onto the shop floor, I done a variety of tasks, like organising stock, looking for a specific item to see if it was in stock or not, to even helping customers with enquiries.
I also got on well with the staff, as they were helpful when I didn't know where some products were
Despite hurting myself in the second week (due to my own clumsiness) which resulted in me ending up with concussion, I still managed to make the effort to come in on for the last two days of the work experience and even gave them a thank you card on the last day.
