Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Pay is good if you can sell. Customer service skills are a definite must. There are opportunities to move up, but you have to jump through hoops to do so.

Cons

Commission structure is outdated. Use of draw system is not working the way it should. Making employees work over 40 hours in a week is ridiculous due to the draw system. Full-time employees should work around 34-36 hours a week.

Advice to Management

Do not take your employees for granted. Make sure that you hire competent individuals.

    Pros

    Easy to learn products. Generally easy to sell. Good recession job.

    Cons

    Long, harrowing hours of standing around while waiting for customers to come in. Commission pay structure needs to be adjusted for cost of living. Poorly trained management. Pathetic marketing campaign.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs substantial training in interpersonal communications.
