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

Pros

HH is a GREAT company, and growing my career with them has made me a better retail manager and person. The company is still small, so communication all the way to the top is just an e-mail away. Bonus potential is fantastic and they generally pay their management staff a decent wage.

Cons

Remember that decent wage I mentioned above? Prepare to sign your life over for that money. They are taking too much on their plate too quickly. Their desire to compete with the nationwide appliance and electronics companies have left their staff stretched very thin. Forget work/life balance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

We are not Sears. Stop focusing all of your competitive reports around them and hiring their upper management. Sears is a not the ideal business model!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Discount on some items is great, while some items offer non existent discounts

    Cons

    Management cannot seem to keep their thoughts together. Having 3 managers total, and sometimes only 1 on the floor is a completely useless practice.

    Any sales and special promotions come directly off of your commission at the rate paid for profit, even if there is no profit in the item. You sometimes LOSE money by selling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out your plan for each manager and work on unifying a style. It is bad when you have a customer come in and they are offered one thing, then they come back the next day and another manager refuses to do the same thing for that customer. It really gives our customers a bad impression of the company.
