    Pros

    Friendly work staff, hour lunch, working with customers

    Cons

    Terrible pay system. Working commission at a retail store is discouraging because you work so many hours then fall into draw. It is Christmas time and this check they took out almost half of my check from "draw". When HR was called they said they don't take a certain percent of the check but they can take whatever amount they please. This is now leaving me and my family tight on funds for the holiday while I am stuck working overtime that places me in draw. It is a terrible cycle. This company would be great to work for if they simply paid sales employees hourly with commissions on warranties. It is very upsetting to work so many hours during the holiday and reap no benefit when you receive the check. At this point I would rather work a part time job at fast food because at least my check could be 50.00 higher. The amount of money spent from turnover at this company would equal what they pay to keep a good, happy, hourly paid staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management is not an issue. If anything I feel bad for them because they know how frustrated their staff is because of the above mentioned. They have the struggle of finding new staff or having people call off and walk out because they are upset. KUDOS.

    Pros

    The associates are fun to be around at times. You will meet some interesting people. The job is pretty chill for hourly associates.

    Cons

    Most of the management staff have no idea what they're doing, most of them can't even edit tickets properly. Also the work environment is very choatic and I feel like I'm back in middle school. This company also has a horrible turn over rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay the hourly associates more. We do the grunt work, handle almost all issues, and we make little to no money. Also there should be more operational positions available for those who work in ops that want to move up.

    Pros

    Family oriented staff and meeting new people on a day to day basis.

    Cons

    Having to run the sales floor because they hire lazy management who put everything off on csm's. low pay rate. all problems fall on csm's. Management is cut throat and will through you under the bus at anytime to make themselves look good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show appreciation to staff!! Stop running those that value your company to the ground.

    Pros

    Money when it is a Holliday

    Cons

    During non Holliday seasons plan to starve and pay the company back from the draw. It is $7.25 per hour that has to be repaid as soon as you make any money over your scheduled hours in commission they take it back all at once. Good luck getting all your commissions if you can find how they take it back in sneaky ways. Managers are preoccupied with the pet employees and give them sales while everyone else has to fend for themselves. It is a greedy environment better watch your money and your back if the company is not taking it your friendly associates will. Managers will not help close sales as they are supposed to do the friendly face close- good luck with that one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on what is important chasing women and looking at your cell phones all day or laughing and playing games with fellow employees on your phones will not get the job done. Also talking about the stores customers while they are within hearing distance is not very good customer service.

    I worked at hhgregg (less than a year)

    Pros

    Discount, potential to earn a lot of money if you know how to swindle customers on warranties.

    Cons

    Horrible work-life balance. Draw. If you go into "draw" (where you don't make enough to cover minimum wage), they will loan you the money to take you up to minimum wage and deduct it from your next paycheck. Take the cost for uniforms out of your paycheck, which is ILLEGAL if it is unsuitable to wear outside of work, such as having a company logo, or causing you to be paid less than minimum wage. Make you go to unpaid training. Coworkers fight like children over customers. Job is commission only. If you get stuck in slow hours you don't get paid. Hire too many people for holiday season, not enough sales to go around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just be ethical, and don't make sales deal with online sales where they earn nothing for their work.
