Current Employee - Salesman in Daytona Beach, FL
Current Employee - Salesman in Daytona Beach, FL

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

Pros

Decent money if u work at it. And get a little lucky. Atmosphere is very relaxed. Every item in the store u sell u make commission. During slow weeks u can collect draw so at least u still get paid.

Cons

Commissions are low on most items. U work on an up system rotation. Little chance u will be recommended for advancement. Managers closely monitor Sales percentages and u must perform to minimum company expectations. U must pay back draw and sometimes they take it back all at once. Minimal training versus high expectations and management is more critical than helpful. Long 12hr days and u can't stay punched in for them unless u sell enough product or u will be in draw every time. Even one hr over 40 makes the entire 40+ overtime pay.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give people a chance. Seek to draw talent internally. Accept that sometimes people are just browsing and not everyone can be sold something it's not always the salesmanship.

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

    Pros

    Adequate training, good health benefits after 90 days

    Cons

    Salary only. Unrealistic commission structure. Ungodly hourly demands during the holiday season (example: November 18 - January 5 only EIGHT scheduled days off (and one of them was Christmas!)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs training in how to instruct adults, in effective group teaching techniques. Coerisive and condescending, one-on-one reprimands do nothing for personal or team morale.
