resolved to the customer's satisfaction
i am not going to tell consumers not to shop at hhgregg because you can get some great buys. but those great buys are at the employees expense. sales personell work for commission. a draw will be paid but you always have to pay it back with your commissions. the bottom line is that hhgregg salespeople are working for FREE. if you have to come to work 1.5 hours early, that goes against your commissions. in other words, employees are paying for coming to work early, during non-commissioned hours. hhgregg calls it training. each employee is expected to pay for their training of 200 hours per year, which hhgregg brags about in their advertising literature. in s.w. florida night hours after 7:00 pm are worthless. there is no productive traffic. schedules are the same for all areas of the country and local management can not alter them, because managements bonuses are affected. (so we were told by management). we are forced to work overtime hours as scheduled. overtime sounds good but remember that salespeople have to pay it back. WE WORK FOR FREE. and when hours are questioned, we are told that is home office. when we call HR we might get a call back 2 weeks later, only to be told that they have nothing to do with scheduleing and we should talk to our district manager, whom we have already talked to. no one in upper management wants to take responsibility for its practices. the attitude is that if you do not like it, then "don't let the door kick you in the ### on your way out".
the only way an employee can make money is by selling PSP (premium service plans) and accessories which are extremely profitable. and if you don't, you are told that you are getting what you deserve, in commissions. NOTHING.
i could go on and on about the abuse. lockdown of doors to keep salespeople from leaving after clocking out. working 17.5, 12.5, 11.5, hours with 1 hour break and 2 15 minute breaks. no first aid or ice for falls. mandatory meetings on your day off. told to work before clocking in.
if you do not have a life, and do not mind being abused, then go to work for hhgregg.
