Supervisor in West Yorkshire
on 6 January 2022
Amazing, fun workplace
I absolutely loved this job. The team I worked on was amazing and supportive, and we always worked together to get the job done, despite often a heavy workload. The only reason I left was that I wanted to progress in my career, and during that time there was no opportunity to do so.
Sales Assistant in Stockton-on-Tees, Durham

Excellent place to work, completed my business management course there working in the stock room as well as on the shop floor. Met a mixture of personalities and love my time there.
Assistant Manager in Various
on 5 January 2022
Wonderful people to work with. Upper management hard to deal with.
I worked at hmv for 7 years. In that time I progressed but every year it got worse and worse with the constant pressure to do more and more work for the same money. I ended up leaving after essentially doing the jobs of three people and all concerns given to head office were never taken seriously.
Sales Advisor in Doncaster, South Yorkshire
on 1 January 2022
Enjoyable job but dying industry
Good friendly environment, fast paced at peak times but dead at others, as such job security is shaky. Managment was friendly and supportive, as were colleagues.
Christmas Temporary Post in Hereford
on 15 December 2021
One of the best jobs I’ve ever had!
I really enjoyed working for HMV over the Christmas period! It was very busy but enjoyable and management were brilliant! Extremely helpful and friendly, never too busy to talk to you. Feedback and praise whilst working and colleagues were great too! I thoroughly enjoyed every part of the job from till work, to sorting through stock and helping customers. I was bitterly disappointed when the branch was one of the shops that closed
