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

    Pros

    Decent pay for the amount of responsibility. Enjoy the people I work with. Decent work life balance for retail. Fun work atmosphere.

    Cons

    Tough business model. Morale varies greatly by stores/region. Poor bonus structure causes a complacent staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bonus structure should bring out the best in employees. Tailor goals to meet business trends and traffic patterns. Employees should strive to hit targets rather than be discouraged by unobtainable budgets.

  2. Working there is no longer what it once was

    I worked at hhgregg

    Pros

    Good hours and not physically demanding

    Cons

    Very low commissions compared to what they used to be; managers are no longer willing to allow you to haggle with customers in order to get a sale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow your employees to haggle; that is the reason that half of the customers are shopping there in the first place.

    Pros

    Customer Service, Really can't think of anything else other than benefits

    Micro-Management, Leaders are not empowered to make decisions, Days off are split, Good Old Boys Mentality, Long Term possibilities, Business is Slow, Loosing Market Share, Bonus potential un-realistic ( Consistently top 15 in the company performance and still never can hit Bonus )

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop Micr Managing, Spend Money on Developing GM's to have the confidence they can run the stores with out constant micro-managing from a corporate level, spend more time learning servant leadership, create a virtuous teaching cycle and Talent management - Recruiting Skills.

    Pros

    Make money when busy, employee discount,

    Cons

    Always slow in the store, ALWAYS!, too many salespeople, bad management, horrible hr department, the big problem with this company is that they are hurting, went from fitness equipment to furniture, to a 90 day price guarantee back to a 30 day, from discounting to not discounting, from free delivery to free delivery via rebate. Company is a joke I spent 7 years with the company, and 6 out of the last 7 were horrible. I am no longer there now. Lastly, If you wanna have a job at a place that is stabke and will be here 1 year from now.... this is not the place for you, LOOK ELSEWHERE, the sales associates are paid on 100% and they are one of the lowst paid associates in the business!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get better management at the store level, not just the 3 stooges.
