I have been working at hhgregg full-time for more than a year

Pros

getting to help people find their right TV or appliance and know they will enjoy them without worry.

Cons

Long hours, standing all day, sometimes overly cut throat or intrusive sales people, lack of commitment or community from some sales people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pull more from inside to fill management slots, getting people with experience from competitors can ease a little bit of training but there is a reason we are doing better that the other guys and bringing in people who do things 'their' way may not pan out.

    I worked at hhgregg full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    HH Gregg offered good commission for electronics sales when I was there. They has a great President's club program and they always carried great products to sell. Several times as a top sales associate I was given the opportunity to travel to other cities and help open and sell at new store grand openings. This was always a very profitable opportunity.

    Cons

    Because HH Gregg is a retail electronics store you will have to work on almost all weekends, Holidays and you will put in some long hours during most weeks. When the company decided to reset the department you are often asked to do this with no compensation for it since you are a comission based sales associate. There were many times that I created the reset myself to ensure that we had the best set up to sell the products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management at HH Gregg often will come down hard on the sales associates about selling the extended service plans. They also had a tendency to micro-manage the sales associates to the point of interferring with their sales to try and make sure that they sell the extended service plans. This would often backfire on them.
