  1. Solid Company

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at RadioShack part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great culture of Customer Service, commision plus hourly pay rate, and great discounts!

    Cons

    The only downside is one that really affects all businesses today, and that is the high turnover. It is hard to create a culture of true devotion, even with the great orientations and heavy emphasis on Customer Service. People leave often and rarely get on board.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Hire the right people and hope for the best! Maybe emphasize a culture of compliance more.

    Pros

    Ability to determine your career path. Mastering your skills in your job allowed you to be considered for promotion and extra responsibility.

    Cons

    Going through failed turn around plans and eventual bankruptcy was very challenging. Watching highest levels of management make decisions that ultimately left the Company broken was disheartening.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the field to get perspective and listen to what those who are customer facing tell you about what would help them be more successful.

    I worked at RadioShack part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good job that teaches young people how to overcome their fear of talking to new people while also teaching them how to prep for their job by doing research on the products.

    Cons

    Lots of returns..thus hurting your financial haul. Trying to sell poor off name products (auvio) at a premium price hurts consumer confidence.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hire young enthusiastic workers who represent your company's objective.

    I worked at RadioShack full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great experience, good discount, opens you up to vast types of electronics. I learned a plehora of valuable information there.

    Cons

    Very high SM and above turn over, "new revised" commission structure was a joke, very questionable leadership decisions regarding new processes, new product and new store layout designs. Seemed to be a huge waste of money.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees!
