Anonymous Employee
Rockford, IL

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at hhgregg in March 2012.

Interview Details – Online Application that included a "Fit" Questionnaire and Resume. Called in for interview and received two interviews. One from SM and one from the GM.

Interview Question – Nothing unexpected although some thought questions were challenging.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiations. It was made clear this was a commission only position with an $8.25 per hour draw and commission based upon 1% of everything sold + a% of profit+ a floating scale up to 25% when Service Contracts were sold on eligible products.

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at hhgregg in March 2012.

Interview Details – I was contacted by e-mail after I applied online for a new store that would be opening within a month or so.. In this email I was asked when a good time to have a brief phone interview would be. I replied and a very nice man called me the next day and told me about the position. He asked me to come for a formal interview the next week. I spoke with him for about an hour and he asked the most questions I've ever been asked in an interview. After that he had presented me to the GM and was told about a scheduling conflict I had. Because I would miss one week of the two week training (which I assumed would cost me the job), I was put in the "pool" and would be contacted if they didn't care for other applicants or if some dropped out during training.
