    Cons

    Pay and and scheduling could use work. I would like to be paid more for hourly and make some more money

    Hourly should be a little more

    Pros

    If there is good customer traffic you can make very good money. Some sales people make 50,000+.

    Not too much else really.

    Cons

    Hours hours hours. Hardly is ever 40 hours it's always more and you don't get overtime.
    Many days you clean store for no pay at all if customer traffic is slow.

    Commissioned sales people SHOULD NOT be cleaning and stocking shelves. That's an hourly task. Sales people should sell, period.

    Managers get slammed with corporate policy and in turn slam employees. In the year I was employed I can name over 20 corporate changes they made which hurt sales people's pay or work life.

    If customer traffic is down then you literally pay Hhgregg for being there due to draw. In the last two years their business has declined by a lot.

    Advice to Management

    Reconsider many managers who get promoted. There should be more extensive training as well.

    Restructure pay scales so more people stay out of draw.

    Pros

    Easy job
    There is a lot of down time
    Great co-workers
    Occasionally a representative will come in and give you a free pen

    Cons

    Management is clueless (especially upper management)
    Inconsistencies in policies
    A lot expected that you aren't compensated for
    Long hours (don't ever expect to have family time)
    Pay structure just got worse
    Good employees are taken advantage of
    Only the negatives are ever focussed on.

    Advice to Management

    Worry about sales and taking care of customers. These have been forgotten in the past few years. Get back to basics because you are on track to go out of business (and fast)

    Pros

    Can't really think of any. Don't even get paid for going to trainings even if it's your day off. It use to be a good company to work for. Use to pay good.

    Cons

    Just being able to make a living as a full-time associate with this company is difficult enough. Constant changes in policies are making it when more difficult for us employees to make any type of living. Having been with the company for many years I've seen the changes.

    Advice to Management

    You have loyal employees, if you treat them well, they will do well for you. And if you pay them better they will work harder for you. Come to the stores and talk to the associates. Listen to our concerns and ideas.
