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

Pros

Ability to negotiate sales prices with customers allowing you to close more sales if you have strong people and negotiating skills. Growing company, so good opportunity to advance into management if you have desire and what it takes to manage people.

Cons

Sales commissions are lower than what you can earn at Sears for same sales volumes by about 1%. At HHgreg we call it commission control, corporate plays with cost to the store on what appears to be almost a daily basis so profit changes continuously therefore effecting your commissions payed on profit.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

To corporate, your store managers are in fear for their jobs every time a regional manager walks in the store forcing the store manager to over micro manage sales staff and making everyones life miserable. When you have miserable sales people who are the face of your business, that is a direct reflection of your company to customer who interact with your sales force. Get your sales force excited (genuinly) and they will excite your customers into committing to more sales.
