Pros: pay was reasonable, but i did not receive an increase for the last few years.years.
Cons: mandated schedule worked you to the point of exhaustion, often 13-14 hour days.
I worked 13 years as an Operations Manager, was injured
in an auto accident, and was never treated the same after
my accident. It's as though the company was doing everything
possible to part ways with me. The General Manager was
a dictator, and none of the employees liked him. He was
overbearing, and I received numerous complaints about him,
but he was my boss and I felt he was constantly trying to find
a reason to let me go. Up until his time as GM, I was happy,
even though I often worked 13 to 14 hour days with a long drive home. The District Manager was not much better, and ignored
most of the complaints about the GM. He also treated me
terribly after my auto accident, even though I had certain work restrictions from my physician and Human Resources (the accident was not even my fault, I was rear ended by a truck).
I worked a total of 16 years (3 years in sales) for HH Gregg, and was happy until the last couple years under the GM and DM described previously. I finally left the company because of comments made to me by the GM. When HH Gregg went from a privately owned company to a publicly owned company, the treatment of the employees went downhill fast. As an employee
who worked as long as I did, you would think that somebody
would have looked out for my best interests and well being.
I would work there again under certain members of management
who I have a great deal of respect for, and I think those good, honest people are the ones who make or break the company.
I believe those senior managers who were there before the company went public were the difference in the quality – more... of the
work experience as I saw it. – less
