I worked at hhgregg full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Outstanding opportunities if you are selling in a destination store and probably in Indianapolis area. Grand Opening was great for the store and the company but not necessarily for the Sales Associates. I had 2 of 3 outstanding sales managers willing to assist in closing sales. First GM was not exceptional as a leader but promoted to early to a GM Role.

Cons

Rules of Engagement Change....We were informed that HH Gregg would take profitable business and did so with some price negotiation. Two months after opening a new direction...Lost our DM who had been with HH Gregg for over 20 years and we became a Sears in philosophy...Not always seeking a sale....A new bonus structure for Managers did not make it a great new place to work for them either.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do not follow the Sears Model or the BB Model. Return to the Take the Profitable Business Model and continue growth. You built the company with the HH Gregg Philosophy; don't destroy it with the Sears or BB Model!

    I have been working at hhgregg part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    All I can say is it's a job.

    Cons

    You're expected to give up family life for a paycheck. Sink or swim training, management is rude and berates employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you don't like job get another one.
