    I worked at hhgregg full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Small potential to make good money. Some weeks are good. Most aren't. Commission rate was cut about two years ago which made this worse

    Cons

    Management was selected on performance and not actual leadership skills. Pay is very inconsistent. Co-workers try to steal sales. Management seemed to have favorites and it showed. I see why this company went under.

    Advice to Management

    You should have listened more to people selling the product than the poor management.
