    Pros

    You can have some awesome coworkers.

    Cons

    Everything else. Poor Commission. Poor Pay. Poor Coaching.

    Advice to Management

    Pay the workers more and they might care about the tons of work you require from them.

    Pros

    Radioshack is a great place to buy things that you may not find anywhere else, that you absolutely need right at that moment, and it is good to fulfill that need.

    Cons

    Radioshack is a dying company, even though it is a pleasant work environment with cool and knowledgeable co workers, the company itself is getting put under by amazon, which is a sad reality

    Advice to Management

    find a way to compete with amazon and market yourself better. everyone sees radioshack as the place to get a capacitor for a motherboard (which it is), but it should be viewed as a one stop shop for the best deals on all things tech.

    Pros

    the commission was reasonable. lots regular customers, who were great. flexible scheduling. good employee discount.

    Cons

    not busy, so there was a tendency for it to be really boring. constantly rearranging the store. even though the commission was good, it created competition between employees (stealing sales) in order to get a decent paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    you should have paid employees more and offered better benefits. should have carried less of the same products (how many different micro usb's does one store need?) in order to have a better range.

    Pros

    Was a nice place to work there. I was always pleased with the their electronics section for the "Do It Yourself" audience where I got to meet great folks shopping for their projects.

    Cons

    I was initially Hired as a Manager In Training and that's what brought me on board to the first place. Unfortunately midway through the training sessions, the DM abruptly announced the program would scale back and that most of us that was being trained as Manager In Training would become Store Reps.

    Advice to Management

    It's too bad the Company is going under but Radio Shack kind of set their path to failure with Poor Customer Service and high price.

    The great thing about working here is that you get a bunch of discounts on everything.

    Cons

    They make you do way too much work for not a lot of money.

    Advice to Management

    Pay us the right amount of money for the work that we do.

    Everything was terrible. Plano grams updated every week with changes that made no sense. Managers didn't know what the company was doing.
