I have been working at RadioShack

Pros

In some of the location doesn't have a lot of traffic in the store, so it is very lay back. (Like right now I'm just writing a review.) You get commission on everything you sell, so if you are a full-timer your paycheck will never be lower than what minimum wage gets. You will get promote really fast if you learn quick and your sales performaces are high. HOWEVER, you can get kick out of the field if your performace sucks.

Cons

It is a stressful job if you dont well on selling. (Performace is the key)
Very strict on attachment which means that all the cellphone, camera, and computer etc you sell, you HAVE TO sell it with accessories. Supposely, that's how the company makes money. WARRENTY is definately a big thing to Radioshack too.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you guys can promote for those people who actually have great performance and leadship skills will be great.

    Pros

    - decent pay if you have a good month
    - get to work with new exciting products
    - good management (at least at my location)

    Cons

    - pay is only average if its a down month
    - no chance for raises or advancement except to management
    -strict quotas, sometimes unreachable because of high emphasis on phones

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raises would be nice, and a pay structure that gave bonuses on more than just phones, although overall the phone bonuses are nice IF you can get them

    Good promotion potential, but pay is complicated and and far too commission-based

    Pros

    Great college job
    Hours are flexible
    Promotion potential is great, even without a college degree
    If you work in a high volume area you can make pretty decent money

    Cons

    Working at RadioShack is all about Location. If you work in a lower income part of town, no matter how adept you are in sales, you will not make as much money as a mediocre employee in a higher income area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your hourly pay plans figured out. Make it simple so employees know what they're bringing home every week.
