    I worked at hhgregg full-time

    Pros

    Got to stand around and watch TV all day because there were practically no customers that ever came in.

    Cons

    Draw against commission pay which is essentially financial-suicide at a slow location. No customers, and if there were, the stock was pathetic. No one could ever leave with anything because there were barely any items available. No room for negotiation either as management doesn't allow you to price an item under cost...even though a warranty and accessory attachment would more than make up for it...

    I worked at hhgregg (More than a year)

    Pros

    excellent place to develop your interpersonal communication/sales skills. I learned how to be aggressive and accumulated a great work ethic! Great pay if you are successful!

    Cons

    HIGHLY COMPETITIVE! It's dog eat dog in there! Because it's commissioned based, you need to watch out for your fellow employees from stealing your customers/clients! This job is not for everybody! If you are shy, you will have to learn how to overcome it!
