    Pros

    Nice hours and a flexible schedule. Awesome group of people to work with. Very good employee discount. Wide array of products and services

    Cons

    The salary for this position is very low. I was promised a salary plus bonus but the bonus was not achievable or realistic. Upper management seemed to never listen or take constructive criticism.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to raise the salary for store managers and be more selective with the managers that they hire. The phrase "you get what you pay for" is absolutely true and in the long run it will lower employee turnover.

    Pros

    Wasn't exactly the best place, but it was good enough to get a job going over the one year period i was there.

    Cons

    Little to no management. Really didn't help to not have any direction on what to do on a day by day basis.

    Advice to Management

    Really does not help to not have any direction on what to do on a day by day basis. Need more direction for employees to work effectively.

    Pros

    Develop a loyal customer base.

    Cons

    Long hours. Bad decisions by upper management ran the company into the ground. Closed successful stores that cannot carry sprint. Once store was set to close, completely ignored the needs of the location. Lowered employee compensation over time. Denys earned vacation time. Took away severance but still gave executive bonus'. Does not pay final manager sales gain bonus because no longer with company. Executives made deal to save themselves, a very dirty company.

    Advice to Management

    You ran the company into the ground and rewarded yourselves, yet took everything away from those who worked the hardest.

  9. My experience was they pushed for unreasonable goals which were made up by people up top.

    Pros

    best part of working for radioshack was experience you get doing sales in wireless plus commission

    Cons

    working holidays like thanksgiving was not a smart move, realizing what consumers really needed not stocking the store with use giftables and items.

    Advice to Management

    dont try to compete with huge retailers when you treat the employees like crap

  10. Ok place to work

    Pros

    - I was the man - controlled everything. I was the reason I was successful.
    - I surrounded myself with great employees. I had a very stable work / home life.
    - Salary - no one else in retail could compete

    Cons

    - It started to go downhill fast.
    - No job security
    - Everyone thinks you were already closed
    - You are on the Titanic - you see the Iceburg - and you increase speed to hit it head on! No one running the ship!

    Advice to Management

    - Close down the stores. It is too late
    - Instead of giving the execs million dollar severance pay - give it to the employees that deserve it.
