    Pros

    After attending the annual meeting, I couldn't be happier with the new leadership of Joseph Magnacca and Troy Risch. I can't wait to see the future now.

    Hopefully the cons are behind us now

    I worked at RadioShack part-time

    Pros

    Good salary, nice manager, learning how to interact with customers on the sales floor all helped me advance.

    Cons

    None really, although I was a student and had a lot to learn the staff was always patient in training me in the front and back offices.

    Pros

    It's a relaxed atmosphere, you learn a lot about electronics and many other products. It is not JUST a Radio Shack Franchise, so you learn about the other side of it, Loud N Clear, which is car audio and products like that. They work with college schedules, and you become like a part of a family here.

    Cons

    Only open until 6 pm, so if you're looking for an evening job, this isn't for you.

    Pros

    Good work atmosphere, with the ability to help others honestly and be recognized for doing good. Also, an amazin internal career path taht allows you to control to an extent how fast you grow with in the company

    Cons

    Somewhat discombobulated on communicating new policies and also micromanaging from above can become a tad over zealous

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just give us goals, and the tools to do our job. Allow us to weed out those that arent good for the company a bit easier, and allow us the freedom to really shine as a team in every store
