    I have been working at hhgregg full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    employee discounts are fair. You receive health benefits and vacation pay even though you are straight commission.

    Cons

    long hours. I have seen people scheduled for back to back 12 hour days. During holiday season you work six days a week unnecessarily. Black Friday they will work you over 12 hours straight or longer with no breaks and won't let you leave. They always talk about opportunity for advancement but always bring management in from outside. Once you work there and you see how many hours management works per week you really decide not become a manager. Managers always tell the sales reps that the reps make more money than them if you work in a smaller market. Major turnover, I see an average of 1 to 1.5 employees leave a month.

    Advice to Management

    Long shifts of over 8 hours are unproductive. Once a rep has been working over 8 hours he or she is not motivated any longer to be there and just is thinking of going home. You guys do not pay much attention to the human aspects/moral of your employees. It comes accross as you only care about the bottom line.

    Pros

    By having less employees at the corporate level it makes it "leaner." This allows decisions to happen a lot faster though they are not always the right one... The company is very aggressive with making sales wich can mean more money in your pocket being that your pay is either all or part commission. Customers will not have to wait to get assistance in the store because the associates have to sell to make money. Excellent selection of high-end appliances in certain stores.

    Cons

    The company is trying to expand to quickly. By being lean it often doesn't have the man power to accomplish goals. My biggest complaint was the lack of product, which forces an associate to sale a product to a customer that may not be right for them. This is very true in the store level because they work on commission alone, which also forces them to steal sales from each other and can ruin a potentially large sale in the process by a commercial manager. Another con is the lack of higher end electronics, which is made up for by very nice appliances but they aren't offered in all stores nor by commercial managers.

    Advice to Management

    Give an hourly rate to the store associates and increase product totals. Increase the amount of higher-end electronics and offer the high-end appliances in all stores.
