Hot Topic has grown from a modest fifteen stores in 2004 to a copious eight hundred stores today, but what makes this retailer so popular? Cited on the “Best Small Companies” and the “Best Companies to Work For” list, the company has gained much attention brought careful notice throughout its history.

Hot Topic, a store that offers a myriad of cultural items, accessories, and clothing, targets a younger market. Rather than a lethargic business atmosphere, the culture at Hot Topic includes a passion for music, and this inspiration from their employees makes the store different from any other. That same employee enthusiasm that designed the store also shows in its approach to hiring workers.

Hot Topic has a unique corporate culture, which makes the firm’s employees fiercely loyal owing to an excellent working environment. They feel appreciated and cherished, and this chemistry reflects from employees to customers. When employees feel happy, it translates to better sales and satisfied customers.

This milieu provides a ready applicant pool to allow the company to promote for corporate jobs from within, a practice that has workers bring their liberal training to the new job. The “9/80” scheduling program, an interesting and no-cost perk offered to employees, gives them one more reason to feel pleased with their job. This program allows employees to work 80 hours over 9 days, and afterwards, they earn three-days off every other weekend.

Innovative in its business model, yet progressive with its human resources, Hot Topic attained success because of both their energetic staff and their exceptional products sold. Ranging from clothes, to accessories, to music, and to games, Hot Topic has novel merchandise for all.

Products for sale in Hot Topic generally captivate people who cannot usually find their favorite apparel at a Wal-Mart or an Aéropostale. They have nerd appealing t-shirts, and gems that catch the fancy with even the most dark gothics.

Unique products draw people inside, but the shopping experience keeps customers coming back for more.

Hot Topic–visit one soon!

About the Writer
Gianna Maglaya, Writer

Hi! I am a new sophomore at New Caney High School, and so far Texas seems pretty amazing. I have moved many times in my lifetime, and now I attend my eleventh high school. I have felt passion for writing and music for as long as I can remember because as an extremely shy child, I could express myself without needing to talk. I have an eclectic taste in music, varying from meaningful raps to country to even heavy metal. I also tend to write short, fictional stories, but veer outside of that genre when I feel inspired.
