I stayed for the friends I made there.
Sales Assistant (Current Employee) – London, Greater London – 19 September 2017
I had worked at HMV for 3 years. Every year, there were more and more cuts, meaning year on year there was more pressure put onto the members of staff that do work there. Head office have no idea what it's like having to cope with such short staff and a thousand and one things to do - They're too busy getting free stuff from all the companies we deal with whilst us members of staff in the store, doing the hard work, are left with nothing.
Staff discount and generally good colleagues.
Staffing issues mean you're always run off your feet, often bad managing practices.
