    Pros

    The environment was great and you had the chance to make a different with your sales team. The best part was that everyone helped each other grow and succeed with the company.

    Cons

    The long hours of work. Working for a retail company the only hard part is the long hours you have to work.

    Pros

    Learn a lot and control a lot of the business. Which means you can make or break your bonuses sometimes.

    Cons

    Company runs on bare minimum with managers. Makes it difficult at times. Kind of a lot to do for one manager at times especially without team work.

    Advice to Management

    Doesn't matter much since company is closing.

    Pros

    Great company to work for til the past year while the company fell apart. They offered many services that made a one stop shop for most consumers. Benefits were great. I'm sad to see the company go.

    Cons

    They past year was difficult with declining sales across the board. Services and deliveries became lackluster which resulted in alot of lost business. I lost a number of contractors due to promises that couldn't be fulfilled.

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

    Pros

    I had some of the best times working at Hhgregg. My coworkers were great, the customers where mostly very nice, and we had a great time. I easily went into a promotion and would have climbed higher if not for the bankruptcy.

    Cons

    As with all jobs, poor employees handling situations only make them worse. handling those issues and the fall out on social media was the absolute worst.

    Advice to Management

    Good Luck in your future endeavors.
