A company like no other. 

From the minute you walk into our Headquarters, you can see, hear, and feel the energy. Our open environment – no cubicles here – allows everyone to be highly interactive. We have monitors throughout the building playing music videos to keep us energized, and you never know which of your favorite songs is going to pop up on our office playlist.

HQ employees enjoy onsite benefits including the cafe, gym and fitness classes, new mother’s room, and an onsite physician and chiropractor here multiple times a week.

More importantly, however, is the opportunity for growth. We offer training to all associates within the company. HQ and DC associates participate in classes focusing on time management, data analysis, retail math, effective communication and more. We also provide classes you can’t find anywhere else, targeted towards understanding Hot Topic licensing and music.

At Hot Topic, we don’t only support promoting from within; we support every individual’s development in line with their personal career aspirations.

We encourage development outside of work, too!

With opportunities such as tuition assistance available, Hot Topic is all about encouraging a healthy work-life balance.
