    I have been working at hhgregg full-time

    Pros

    Management is sympathetic of their employees needs and try the best they can to accommodate everyone who works there to make for a good work environment.

    Cons

    Hhgregg as a whole has dug itself in a pretty bad economical hole, the ads they run are not profitable and create a culture of ungrateful and extremely rude and entitled customers who will lash out on their reps at the stores.
    The corporate call center is just that, a call center. they have no idea of what they are doing, do not support and back up company and stores policies nor the managements judgment calls. I believe that this is why Hhgregg as a whole hasn't been able to clear a profit in the past 3 quarters and that's why its share its at bellow 0.50 cents a share.
    If Hhgregg continues this trend it'll more thaan likey be bankrupt in the next 2 years.

    I have been working at hhgregg part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great atmosphere at the store level most of the time. Most managers I have worked with are great people and I love working for them. The salesmen and other staff are some of the best people I have worked with. The in store atmosphere is great.

    Cons

    Upper management and turn over are not the greatest. The constant change of managers does not help the atmosphere the store is working to get to as well as the constant change in direction the company moves too is always conflicting.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the constant change in direction and supply problems.

    I have been working at hhgregg full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I enjoy what my actual job is. It's the BS that goes on in the company in general that makes this place not so wonderful.

    Cons

    The company isn't ran well, and hasn't been for years. They have found a hard time finding a way to operate that works. Seems like twice a year EVERYTHING changes, but there are still unresolved issues.
