ohhh trust me, at hot topic customers are WAY worse...you just dont realize it until you work there
plus, the company has some rather abnormal rules and practically expect you to be bouncing off the walls all day.
im an ics associate at wal-mart...i just ignore most all the customers and if someone has a question on something i simply point them in the direction...generally no one bugs me ;-P
i guess it depends which department you're in.
also: hot topic pays for shit. ill never work for minimum again
dont get me wrong, they're not necessarily a bad company per se...they're just overhyped. my friend who works at their headquarters even refers to the company as "the fucking gestappo"
oh and as far as people choosing and what not, you're right, but, this presents a new place for HUMAN STUPIDITY to rear it's ugly head. people will ask you the most retarded shit at hot topic and you're expected to answer. and sometimes they can be sweet but other times, especially when it's parents, they're just fucking rude.
