    Pros

    Very easy to advance to GM position. Employee discount is decent.

    Cons

    Long hours(50+ per week, even more during holiday weeks). impossible bonus structure, so make sure its worth it with just the base salary. Terrible corporate managment. No transparancy. Recent change to salesperson pay are terrible. I hope they change it back when the make up the millions Sam Johnson lost

    Advice to Management

    Better bonus structure. Better communication with store management from corporate. More hourly help capabilities

    I liked the fact that we worked as a team . Everyone was willing to help the ones who needed it the most.

    Cons

    The only con I have is that the position was seasonal

    I appreciate all the hard work and effort you all put in at HH Gregg .. My only advice would be to keep up the good work

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule Great Service to customers.

    Cons

    Not enough work satisfaction. Not well-defined roles..

    Advice to Management

    Please be very careful about how you dole out the roles and what you tell an employee they will be doing. In addition make sure new employees get proper training.

    Pros

    Lots of room to grow. Those who stand out and excel in their positions are offered bigger we and better opportunities.

    Cons

    Holiday hours can be taxing but that is the nature of retail. Changes to schedules and adjustments are always last minute.

    Advice to Management

    When doing extended hours we should cascade that information down to the team well in advance so that managers, hourly, and sales can plan accordingly.

    Pros

    Great employee discount, family type workplace. Overall not a bad place to work for you can definitely make money.

    Cons

    Probably the biggest con is the commission change that took place, for a new person money would be good, but for someone that has been there not so much.

    Advice to Management

    Change the commission structure back to what it was before you lose all your great employees.

    Pros

    Great people to work with Great Customers to business with Great product offerings Training available, on your own, from vendos, and from instore personnel.

    Cons

    As with all major retailers the hours can be long and week end work is required. In store back-up stock on some sales merchandise would be helpfull

    Advice to Management

    Change pay structure so employee's can have the rewards of their hard work. Talk to the employees before major changes are implemented to get their feedback and to let them know what is being considered.

    Pros

    not too difficult though we do the work of a few people Management is willing to help when needed Power to handle situations at your discretion for the most part

    Cons

    low pay for what we do didnt feel like much room for advancement raises were once a year and VERY small

    Advice to Management

    Pay CSM's more! They keep the front end running smoothly and should easily make $10/hr+

    Pros

    Excellent product discount. Solid benefits for full-time sales staff. Formerly excellent commission sales structure. Now seemingly working the kinks out of a new commission structure. A company that really wants it.

    Cons

    New commission structure is not as good as old one, but they seem to be trying to fix it in order to please the professional sales staff. Not enough support staff, would rather not handle non-paying opps duties.

    Advice to Management

    Just let me sell. Don't get too cute with every little detail of a sale. Teach other salesman how to sell profitably and not just cut to close.
