I worked at hhgregg full-time for 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.

    Current Employee - Electronic Sales and Appliance Sales in Catonsville, MD

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

    Pros

    - Great employee discounts
    -A lot of freedom and power to close sales
    -Very lenient managers

    Cons

    -Employee to customer ratio is awful
    -Don't reward for hard sales only big sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve scheduling, better gauge how many customers are coming in a given day and schedule upon that. Too much time to fiddle your thumbs and wait in line for a customer.
