    I worked at Hype DC part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Having worked there for 4 years the best part about it was the people. Made some life long friends and the pay was above average.

    Cons

    Accent Group are toxic and the turn over of managers and area managers was ridiculous. In my last year for the company, I had 5 different area managers. The pressure that casual staff were put under was unfair and criminal as they were forced to compete for sales to the extent where it created a negative "Team" Culture. Upper management left the store managers to do their dirty work and would constantly talk behind employees...

    I worked at Hype DC part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - 40% discount on products - The people that you work with at store level! - Customers are generally nice

    Cons

    - TOXIC upper management. Regional, state and national managers are condescending, speak to you derogatorily, doesn’t even treat casual team members as anything BUT a replaceable commodity. They’re unapproachable, talk about you behind your back and will never want to approach you about any issues that they have with you personally. They’ll tell the store managers to do their dirty work. A lot of team members have been...

    Advice to Management

    You can only go so far as a business by ignoring the importance of treating your workers like humans. How about starting with learning your employees names? Promote healthy teamwork and RESPECTFUL competition amongst team members over enforcing toxicity and bullying culture. Also, get a new buying team. The quality of products you’re buying into the brand Hype DC is embarrassing.

    I worked at Hype DC part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Tbh nothing. Nothing is exciting or stimulating about this company. Poor, bland and unoriginal

    Cons

    - Over expectations within an unrealistic time frame - The company doesn’t do forward thinking, however if you wish to consult with them with the best possible solution, they disagree until the problem occurs then they realise you were right, but they won’t admit it - Favouritism within management and staff. If you suck up and on the good side of management, then you’re set - If they don’t like you, then they would...

    Advice to Management

    To be able to lead well, YOU yourself have to get off your pedi stool and actually be a store manager or at least team member first to UNDERSTAND what the store goes through and know how to lead the situations with EMPATHY

    I worked at Hype DC part-time

    Pros

    The people are great. Pay is above average.

    Cons

    Management is the worst I’ve ever experienced. In less than two years we went through 6+ managers and 6 months of that time we had no manager. Unrealistic expectations

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff because we are in the stores everyday and have more of a clue than you do

    I have been working at Hype DC for more than 5 years

    Pros

    40% discount Majority of team members are great, fun to work with people

    Cons

    Forced (illegally) from my permanent part time contract to a casual contract by being blackmailed Unrealistic goals Toxic environment in management (past a store level) Accent have this mindset that all employee's are another cog in a wheel. We've seen this by everyone from national managers to part time staff being pushed out of the company and replaced for little more than 'being a part of the old hype' (the hype...

    Advice to Management

    Empathise with your staff members, stick up for them instead of bending over for head office Fix the pushy sales atmosphere Train staff properly and teach product knowledge instead of forcing us to learn on the job and lie compulsively.
