    Pros

    This was a great inside sales role with no limitation on geography or customer type. The product assortment was very profitable which made it easy to reach your sales goals. All of the employees and management were helpful and supportive. Really it was one of the best overall employment experiences I have had.

    Cons

    RadioShack couldnt pull out of the downward spiral of bankruptcy.

    Advice to Management

    If radioshack does continue in some capacity after the bankruptcy having a small inside sales team again would be beneficial to the new organization.

    Pros

    Great people, reasonable expectations, decent work life balance, generally a fire drill weekly versus daily. Salary fair for Ft Worth

    Cons

    Business Leadership Drives too many changes in projects. Too many large backend processes keeps IT from looking like a nimble organization.

    poor pay, depends on your boss if you are happy or not, not enough advancements within, part timers leave for better pay to rehiring is often.

    should have kept the assistant manager position, you didn't look at minor details to keep up efficiency

    Pros

    I worked at a franchise and the owner was very business savy. He did not follow much of corporate's guidelines simply because they were not good (Probably why they are filing bankruptcy right now).

    Fun atmosphere, fun people, you really felt like you were involved and your opinion mattered. We carried everything in our store; from old to new, big to small. We were not just phones. We changed our inventory yearly (sometimes monthly) based on customer wants, needs, and demand changes.

    Cons

    With any retail job, you will run into some HORRIBLE people who think they own the Earth.

    Advice to Management

    Not much I can say at this point. If you followed a better business plan (Like our store) you probably wouldn't be filling bankruptcy.
