More transparency from HQ. They have gotten better over the years but it could still improve.

Just be honest I mean you don’t have to tell them your life story or anything of that nature

I filled out an application online and got a call back the next day.

This usually always has to do with Hours and pay. Both of which are usually out of the hands of the store manager and into the hands of corporate. I know store managers now have now decided to take the fire for over-scheduling and giving their employees decent hours. Unfortunately, they can't do that too often because then the store gets punished. Corporate needs to visit more stores, not just the same 3/4 stores to understand what we need and what we don't so the store can sell more and they can get more hours.

15 with a worker's permit. However, most likely are going to be limited to maybe 4 hours on school nights and 6 hours the most on Saturday.

Not really, they are great at grooming the right outgoing (and even sometimes introverted) people to excelling at customer service.

Wear a bit more "fancier" clothes. I went in strict business attire, however, when I got there everyone was in tees and jeans (but never saw after that interview). I say not to fancy but not tees and jeans. And because the company tends to do group interviews you really want to stand out. So if everyone is in a t-shirt and jeans and you're in a dress shirt they will remember you most. But remember Hot Topic hires personality, not image you don't have to go all out just be memorable.

For me, the best part was my team. My managers and sales associates were very close, and we cared about each other. If one of us wasn't feeling well, at least two of us would chime in with, "Do you need a 15? Do you need medicine? Water? Food? Let us know what we can do."
That 40% off for employees was nothing to sneeze at either.
