High Calibur Performance rewards High Calibur Pay and other incentives!

Store Manager (Current Employee)
Bonner Springs, KS

I have been working at RadioShack

ProsGreat experience locally with customers, establishing rapport, bonuses paid monthly and annually, recognition of good performance, and a great feeling of succeeding against "preconceived notions" of my location!

ConsCurrently? I work 51+ hours a week, but that's changing. Dealing with "old" employees, not by age but by how long they've been here (they are burnt out and it's a pain to deal with because they perform at just the right level to where they can't be let go)

Advice to Senior ManagementMost of the changes I wanted made are being made, so I currently have no advice

Great place to start

Radio Shack (Current Employee)
Fremont, CA

I have been working at RadioShack

ProsNice work pace/load, great people, and a lot of freedom is given in this job (as far retail goes).

ConsLow pay if you're in a slow store, low budget and sometimes the company can do rediculous things.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere are a lot of ways the company can simplify things and cut costs without cutting its people or productivity. Also, our stores need more hours in out budgets to actually have coverage and actually be able to serve our customers.
