If you were in charge, what would you do to make Hot Topic, Inc. a better place to work?
Listen to your employees, we see what people want or dont want, we hear what they want or don't want. Also, the warehouse sku-ing is a mess, please help with that if you can. Inventory is a mess.
What advice would you give the CEO of Hot Topic, Inc. about how to improve the company?
Bring back gothic clothes, watch what BOTH parts sell better in, not ONLY America. People come here to shop for pop culture, as well as for the punk/emo/goth that they used to come for.
What is Hot Topic, Inc. sick leave policy? How many sick days do you get per year?
Only full time management get paid sick days. Associates can take non-paid sick days, and longer with a doctors note. If serious enough, they might be able to apply for sick leave, but I'm not sure if there would be pay. Management usually get about 40-50 hours I think of sick pay per fiscal year I believe.
