    Pros

    Easiest job anyone could have. The potential for good money and lots of training are at your disposal. Just don't rely on senior management to help. My General Manager is very helpful but his hands are tied.

    Cons

    Hiring all senior management from a company (Sears) that was run into the ground isn't a good sign. Many knee jerk changes being made to policy and employee commission that has employees running away.

    Advice to Management

    Quit and actually put some people in charge that have run successful companies. Best Buy is not your worry, its not being ahead of the game.

  2. It has been a wonderful experience working at HHGregg as a warehouse worker.

    Pros

    HHGregg is a good part-time job for someone that is attending school.

    Cons

    At times management can be rude whenever they are giving direction.

    Advice to Management

    Whenever it is pressure moments, I would tell them to relax and be optimistic about those situations that may occur.

    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    Management in individual stores
    Peers
    That's about it.

    Cons

    Bad pay structure, commission only with draw.
    Overall feeling of not being cared about by the company.
    Long hours.

    Advice to Management

    To store managers... treat your employees good and they will bend over backwards for you.

    To Corporate Management... Stop reducing pay by raising expectations to sell. Treat your employees better and they will respond in kind by selling more!
    Commission based sales is hard enough especially in this day of competition and internet.
    The new benefits packages are horrible, they do not cover much.

  10. 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 Management

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