    I have been working at hmv full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working with products you're genuinely (and sometimes fanatically) interested in.
    Working alongside people from all walks of life but who share the same interests.
    Lots of opportunities in store to talk to customers and use your knowledge to make recommendations.
    Lots of head office staff have been sales assistants, supervisors, managers in the stores, so you'll find lots of people who are really passionate about the company in all corners of the business.
    Staff discount!

    Cons

    The outlook for the company seems to be positive but it's hard to shake off the 'ailing retailer' label!

    Pros

    Verizon excels at providing opportunities to learn and grow. They provide an excellent compensation program with great benefits.

    Cons

    At the time of my RIF (Reduction in Force), there were no positions available here in Tampa. As I had no desire to relocate, I had to accept the layoff.

    Advice to Management

    I desire a position that test my skills, makes my think outside the box and provides a path for promotion. I desire that the company that employs me is as flexible to my needs as they expect me to be to their needs. I want to be part of a team that want to do more than what is required.
