As someone who worked as a Sr. Store Manager for a similar company to Hot Topic, if you think you're only working 50 hours a week you are dreaming..... and 12 years ago the starting salary was about $24k a year, with "top" people making around $30k. Just to clarify.

Yeah, from my experience.. BK and KFC/TacoBell tend to pay the best and had a relatively fast ladder out of the store and into corporate management pre-recession. Now, I'm not sure as I parlayed that experience into the I.T. field for a F500.

If you had a job offer from a F500 (reallyF100) at headquarters as a financial analyst starting in the $50s(in a cheap metropolis). Would you take it even if you really wanted to become a lawyer but could see yourself working for a few years and shooting for a top MBA?

It's actually preferable that you just start a thread dedicated to your question instead of trying to throw it in multiple marginally related threads.

KFC and Tacobell are the same entity - along with Long John Silvers, PizzaHut(I think), and A&W.

I wouldn't call them HYS, but in BK's case.. HQ's in Miami, FL. So.. at least you'll live somewhere that never snows.

My topic warranted discussion through consensus. Your topic did not.

You then proceed to bump your question as if nobody saw it, then complain when told that if you want an answer you should make your thread.

Yes, this indeed is the essence of TLS.
