    I have been working at RadioShack full-time (More than 5 years)

    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.

    Pros

    The people, always learning new things.

    Cons

    different ways of doing things, learning the websites to activate phones was hard to understand.

    Advice to Management

    Take it easier on employees that are new to the retail industry. Sometimes they have a hard time getting into the habit of retail. And listen to what they have to say when you ask them a question.
