Current Employee - Sales Associate in Novi, MI

I have been working at RadioShack part-time for more than a year

Pros

Great Staff and management, Great Pay Minimum wage+ Commission, Very flexible with hours and relocating, Great discounts and benefits, Lots of room to move up within the company.

Cons

Customers aren't always friendly, Alot of different goals and metrics you have to meet every month, Alot of things to keep track of and offer to every customer, ex: Batteries, Cell phones, Service plans ect.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't put so much emphasis on offering things to every customer. Not all customers are right for the things being offered to them, and a lot of them are put off by having so many things thrown at them.

    Current Employee - Sales Associate in Andover, MA

    I have been working at RadioShack full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Pros? There are no pros working at this horrible place, McDonald's is a better place to work than here

    Cons

    Everything, having to sell rip off service plans, maintaining sales numbers that do not benefit you in anyway other than not getting yelled at, radioshack makes it obvious they do not care about you in anyway shape or form, all they care about are numbers not people, worst job I've ever had

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating us like cattle, quit pressuring us into numbers that we have no reason to care about

    I have been working at RadioShack full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Discounts are great, you can get an employee plan on verizon att or sprint, not to mention it can be a very relaxed work environment if you are at a slow store (so you won't make any real money)

    Cons

    Over the years compensation has turned in to a big joke. You MUST perform in all metrics (service plans, batteries, cell phones, etc) to get any sort of bonus as an associate. As a asst manager I am making less than when I was just a salesman on the past pay structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay is terrible, if we had performance spiffs back and a better pay rate your employees would be more loyal and work harder.
