Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee), Cary, NC – September 4, 2013
Pros: fun environment, relaxed atmosphere, small teams.
Cons: corporate out of touch with store-level.
You get to spend large portions of your day talking to people about movies, music, shows, and collectibles. Local store personnel are all really friendly for the most part, and get along pretty well. Corporate's focus on selling "add-on" stuff like magazine subscriptions seems counter-intuitive, like it's playing against their strengths as a brick-and-mortar – more... with live people for customers to talk to instead of sales-driven computer programs. – less
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Trumbull, CT – August 26, 2013
I worked there for 3 years and quickly advanced to an assistant manager. I appreciated all the knowledge gained and work experience. However, the pay wasn't that great and there was a lot of favoritism. I left for a better paying more professional job.
Third Key and Sales Associate (Former Employee), Frederick, MD – July 2, 2013
Was a great opportunity to interact with the clients to find out exactly what they were interested in. It was a great reflection at the end of the day to be able to provide service to someone who enjoyed media entertainment as equally as oneself as an employee.
The reason why I loved this job was the people I worked with and the customers that came in. It just feels so good to find a customer something that they been searching for awhile. But then again, the worst part of the job is also the customers. The ones that don't understand that something is out of print. But I try not to let that keep me down. I've – more... made many friends just meeting people in my store. – less

Internal Audit - Intern (Current Employee), Albany, NY – April 16, 2012
TWE is a great place to grow and advance professionally. It also offers the ability to extensively network with others in the same profession. It is sad to see the effects the downturn of the entertainment industry has had on the company.
Cashier and Sales Associate (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PA – March 23, 2012
Pros: good co workers
Cons: bad pay, bad managers, stressful job
minimum wage pay for 13 an hour worth of work. Managers and corporate don't care about their employers at all. They only care about sales goals and numbers and they make sure we do all we can to keep them high. NEVER AGAIN
