BOARDMAN

A home-appliance-and- electronics retailer is hiring 50 people to work in its new Boardman store at 441 Boardman-Poland Road.

Positions available at hhgregg include managers-in-training, warehouse staff, commissioned-sales associates and customer-service merchandisers.

Pay varies by position, with commissioned-sales associates making up to $20 an hour, said hhgregg account executive Jeffrey Dorman.

Employees will undergo more than 200 hours of paid product training to prepare them in assisting customers, according to a company press release.

“As we continue to grow in Ohio, we are seeking motivated people to become part of the hhgregg team,” Jeff Pearson, vice president of marketing at hhgregg, said in the release. “We hope all those with a positive attitude and a customer- service focus will apply.”

Dorman said the store will open in late spring, although an exact grand- opening date has not been set at this time.

“We chose the Boardman space based on believing its first-class retail location will help drive brand awareness by offering area residents the opportunity to see and visit our store,” Dorman said. “We believe consumers in Boardman are looking for hhgregg’s large selection, better service and knowledgeable sales associates.”

Those interested in applying must complete an online application and assessment, which can be found at www.hhgregg-jobs.com.

In business since 1955, Indianapolis-based hhgregg has 173 locations in 15 states.

The retailer has 23 locations in Ohio, including the one that will open in Boardman.

HHGreg is actually Sun TV reborn under a new name. When Sun went out of business due to high pressure commision sales, most of their employees went to HHGreg which also bought a few Sun Stores. They probably should have moved into the Circuit City building to distance themselve from Best Buy. Who knows, maybe this will force Best Buy to finally stock their shelves with a decent products.

I would much rather deal with Sears at least they provide high quality customer service even if their prices are slightly higher. They had them ripoff stores in Florida and my shopping experience was a nightmare.

It is not SunTV reborn - HHGregg is a family company, started in 1955 by Henry Harold Gregg and his wife Fancy. It is based out of Indianapolis. Sure, they have some executives that came from Sun, but so did Best Buy and Circuit City when Sun first went out of business. The Gregg family are still the major shareholders. Yes, their sales people are on commission, but you can find someone to help! Have you ever tried to find help at Best Buy?? I stood in front of the computer I wanted for 45 minutes before anyone bothered to talk to me!
I've heard Cheesecake Factory is going in where Circuit used to be.... :)
