Promised a great career, but in reality it equals indentured servitude

I have been working at hhgregg

Pros

Select coworkers are competent and honest.
Discount similar to Best Buy's old structure
Product training direct from vendors.
Almost enough toys (electronics) to satisfy your inner electronics nerd.

Cons

Promises made were not upheld on opening the doors.
Sneaky and dishonest coworkers, that severely lack integrity.
Family seems to be a forgotten word, as 6 day work weeks, and a 22 hour day come into play.
1/3 of management seems incompetent, other 2/3 seems to not care.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Learn to treat your employees as human beings. It is very rude and unprofessional to walk away from an employee as they are expressing a concern. Also please learn how to do your job and at least attempt to find answers to problems. Knowing operating procedures and current promotions is part of your job, as is the responsibility to channel that information to your employees.
