    I worked at RadioShack

    Pros

    Gave me experience in retail sales environment which lead to it being easier to find certain jobs, after posting this job in my resume. Employers like to see past work experience involving sales on resumes. I was a good salesman, therefore this job wasn't that hard for me, if your not a good salesman, this job certainly is not for you. It entirely focuses on sales, which can be difficult at times due to the traffic of customs not always being good.

    Cons

    No real good benefits other than a couple discounts, management is always put under stress from up in the chain to the point that the managers will always be on your back about absolutely everything. Almost to the point where your whole life revolves around RadioShack and would seem as if you have lost your personal life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There's better ways of achieving goals rather than driving stuff down peoples throats to achieve them, acknowledge good work more and reward it better as well, this will give the employee more drive in fulfilling those goals. Better pay as well.

    I have been working at RadioShack part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I am sincerely struggling to think of a pro for working at radioshack, disregarding the fact that I get a paycheck. My store manager is a pretty down to earth guy, and my coworkers are very easy to work with and are very humble, but that's a completely objective situation

    Cons

    Poorly prepares employees for what we actually sell, and has ridiculous expectations of keeping afloat by selling cell phones. They don't take into account that what we really sell the most are parts, batteries, and smaller appliances. Workers are also given quotas to fill that only call for persisting in annoying the customer. Ask for email, ask for donations to livestrong, ask for service plans that ultimately don't benefit the customer. You have to have absolutely no shame to be able to work here comfortably.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lose the schizophrenic business model. Figure out what you want to be, a cell phone retailer or a hobby shop. If you can't come to do this, then pull the plug.
