    I worked at RadioShack part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Commision is the best part of working here. Working with co workers is a pleasure and coworkers typically look out for each other.

    Cons

    Learn on your own and learn fast. Selling cell phones is not easy. Convincing someone to buy a phone is easy, the process of getting them the phone is near impossible and often leads to no sale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure your employees know how to process postpaid transactions. Be readily available to answer any questions your sales associates have.

    I have been working at RadioShack part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    You gain more knowledge than you think you knew.
    Promotions do vary by store, but if you have no hours at one store, you have an opportunity to gain hours at another nearby store.
    You do get discounts on some products, you also get discounts with Sprint AT&T and Verizon!
    2% commission per sale!

    Cons

    Learning service parts is a bit of a struggle, but this can be a pro to some one. Everyone has a weakness. Benefits are available to part time, helps more of full time but that's anywhere. They work really good with your schedule as well. Loving and caring enviorment!

    Pros

    Team Work Oriented, Benefit packages for all budgets, Discounts from major third-party vendors, Bonuses galore, commissions plus hourly wages, flexible scheduling, promotions and growth.

    Regional and District HR departments can be unhelpful at times. Application and hiring process can be tedious and lengthy. No discounts toward uniform replacement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company integrity and well being is truly important, however, maintaining and retaining is very important. No employees, no RadioShack.
