Former Employee - Sales Associate in Raleigh, NC

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

Pros

If you want full time employment it's there for the taking, and benefits kick in very quickly. Management helps out a lot with sales and has tremendous floor presence. Customers were treated very well. Commission structure is nice. It's better than a lot of comparable retail environments.

Cons

Hours are entirely awful, especially in the middle of the summer. Most of the day is spent standing around waiting to have a customer to help (in other words - most of the day you do absolutely nothing, which means you aren't making any money). Way, way too much of your salary completely depends on PSP/Extended Warranty sales - make no mistake, if you choose to work here and you aren't very good at selling snake oil, er, PSP, you will be taking home near minimum wage.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Slow down with your expansion, and keep to your older philosophies that worked and allowed you to get as big as you are. If you want to kill Sears, don't try to be like them.

    Pros

    you stay busy throughout the day and that makes the day go by fast

    Cons

    the fact that you are blamed if the inventory is incorrect for any reason, and that the other managers expect you to do their job while they do nothing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    step up to your position and do not rely on your ops lead to do it all for you. Also try paying the ops what they are worth

    Pros

    You are not required to do lot of manual labor.

    Cons

    Where do i start. The management team has no consistantcey. One week you follow a set of rules the next week its completely different. Certain associates get sent home for coming into work several minutes late, While others can not call in for days and suffer no consequences. You will be required to do mandatory UNPAID training in uniform every two months far from the location of the store you work at. Good luck even getting reimbursed for gas mileage. Pay is okay if you are lucky enouph to have customers. Worse job I have ever worked. Long days, working 45 hrs a week for little pay. Oh ya the health benefits are a joke too!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more proactive. Stay consistant with each employee. No special treatment. Promote from within not off the streets.
