    I have been working at hhgregg

    Pros

    None. Horrible conditions. I can't wait to find another job.

    Cons

    Too much work that we are not paid for. No personal/sick days, you get sick you have to use vacation time. U work long hours for less pay during the holidays because the commission rates are slashed because prices are slashed for all of the door busters. U constantly have to review your pay stubs, over $500 in pay errors last year. Too long of hours, you'll close at 930 and have to be back the next day at 830. You'll be assigned 6 days a week during holidays. You'll sometimes work 9 days in a row without a day off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think every single person in the corporate office should be assigned to sell in a store for one month. They are so clueless. I think one month would help them maybe to understand the slavery conditions that they have created. I also find it interesting that nobody from corporate ever shows up after 5 in our store, or on a weekend.

    Pros

    Potential to make a lot of money, and move up in the company. Higher ups are respectful, understanding and patient.

    Cons

    None really. If anything I would just say the fact that it's retail. So you will work long hours and holidays. But that's expected in a retail environment and the money you can make is worth it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think Management is doing a great job, listening to the employees and coaching appropriately.

    Pros

    You make what you put into the job. If you are personable and able to sell yourself then you can make money. Perfect for bachelor's.

    Cons

    There is a lot of down time, as in some seasons do not yield as high of pay as other seasons but manage your money and it evens itself out

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be so quick to put just anyone into management. I love my management team but have ran into a few that were less then management material.
