    This is lovely job to work at and interact not only with your co-workers but the customers!

    Sales Associate (Current Employee) Las Vegas, NV

    ProsYou 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!

    ConsLearning 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!

    Team Work oriented!

    Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee) Fayetteville, NC

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

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

    If you are a salesmen it's a decent environment to sharpen your tool belt

    Sales Associate (Former Employee)

    ProsTechnology meets sales, decent hourly pay for a student plus commission and growth into management is easy.

    ConsThe company only wants to sell phones and plans but will delude you into thinking there's more to it then that. There's a limit to your growth so gain some experience but don't make it a career

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf mobile is what you care about then get rid of all the extra overhead because the mix message confuses costumers
