Hard workers skipped over

Warehouse Lead (Current Employee) Aurora, IL

ProsEmployee discount program is great.

ConsThe company propaganda states hhgregg loves to promote from within and they support employees. This is not true. I was passed over for a promotion because I was too valuable in the job I currently perform. I have been with the company for 16 months and it is rare to be able to work a full 40 hour week, even after all this time. Management keeps saying to hold on and it will get better. How long does a person have to wait? The benefits are horribly expensive. I am unable to insure my family and still have any take home pay. The turnover of warehouse staff is unbelievably high. There is no desire by management to actively try to keep current employees. The attitude of don't let the door hit you is horrible. My manager leaves early every day because he doesn't want to be there and there is no accountability for his spotty attendance. He constantly changes his schedule on a whim because something came up at home and leaves others to do his work and pick up the slack. He makes the schedule and always schedules himself off every Friday and Saturday night along with every holiday. Every other manager, supervisor, and lead has to use a formal request process to have any hope of getting a weekend off. Any hourly employees leaving early, arriving late, or missing even one day of work due to illness or emergency is an automatic detriment to your employee record. The double standard wears thin pretty quickly and causes resentment among the management staff and other employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementStick by your mission statement and promote good employees. You will just end up losing employees if you don't take care of them.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Solid company, but work/life balance very poor

    Sales Associate (Current Employee) Cleveland, OH

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

    Pros: In today's economy, it is rare to find a company that is privately owned, profitable, and growing. HH Gregg is really unique in that… Cons: The hours are crazy and are completely at the will of the corporate office. You might have a week with two or three twelve-hour… Advice to Senior Management: Rethink your systems from an employee's point of view and a customer's point of view. Get up to speed on how progressive companies are… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

    Straight commission sales, pretty good if you are very aggressive. Not for the timid or laid back personality types.

    Home Theater Sales (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

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

    Pros: If you are very aggressive and don't take no for an answer, you can do pretty good. The job is straight commission and you have… Cons: You are limited to who comes in the store to shop and many days you get extremely slow traffic. Many customers want to negotiate, and… Advice to Senior Management: Some sort of hourly or daily pay plus commission structure would work better than straight commission. Many days are so… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
