Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at hhgregg.

Interview

Meet with store manager for 1st interview. 2nd and/or 3rd interview with Regional Manager and Divisional Vice President. They both have to approve but its the DVP that has final say. Interviews my be group conducted or several interviews go on in same store...doesnt mean there is only one spot...they will at times look for 2-3 at once. Sales experience helps

Interview Questions

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at hhgregg (Nashville, TN) in August 2009.

    Interview

    There is no interview procedure to prepare for. Most of the interview experiences are meet and greet scenarios and setting job expectations. The hardest part of hiring an hhgregg managers is finding a candidate that can work the long hours and handle the pressure for lower than big box retail average pay without burning out.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There is little room to negotiate. Discussing pay at hhgregg is highly discouraged as there is a large gap in pay between managers in the same position. Managers coming from outside the company are paid much more than managers promoted internally.

    Negotiation

    Had to neg. three different times before setteling at 40K a yr as a GM. hhgregg offers a very small base salary with emphesis on bonuses and how big they are ( how big they MAY be). If you are offred a job, stick to your guns. hhgregg will not pay out base salaries like other big box retailers, So be sure you understand the bonus structure clearly. This is the only way you will exeed your income potential.
