INDIANAPOLIS, Aug. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading appliance, electronics and furniture retailer hhgregg (NYSE: HGG) is announcing the hiring of more than 550 full-time and part-time in-store sales associates. As the holiday shopping season continues to tiptoe earlier into the calendar year, hhgregg is looking to have their stores fully staffed and associates trained and ready to greet shoppers getting a jump on the holiday rush.
"The annual Black Friday surge will always be there, but we are seeing a trend in recent years of holiday shoppers showing up much earlier than the traditional Thanksgiving-time rush," said Chris Sutton, VP of Marketing at hhgregg. "We want to be positioned to continue providing our premium level of customer service, which is by combining knowledgeable sales associates with our high quality product selection."
hhgregg's high quality product selection includes this holiday season's anticipated hot ticket item: the 4k television. With four times the resolution of Full HD, this latest TV technology brings unparalleled crispness and detail with heightened color and contrast making for the most enhanced TV watching experience yet. That experience is one that many shoppers will be looking to give this year.
Cutting edge products and superior customer service have always helped hhgregg provide a truly differentiated purchase experience. Hhgregg is seeking to continue that decades-long tradition by hiring sales associates in each of their 227 retail locations. Jobs are also open at select locations of the company's Fine Lines stores, where shoppers considering kitchen renovations can find the finest selection of premium appliances.
Positions to be filled range from entry level to senior management and previous retail experience is preferred but not required. hhgregg will be addressing additional holiday hiring needs in the coming months in preparation for November's holiday shopping push.
