I worked at RadioShack full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

As a sales representative it was fun, competitive, flexible, challenging, teammates if the management implemented this in their circle.

Cons

As a sales manager after some years it came down to who have you knew and had who were your comrades to get to the next level and you will wait until upper management has changed the culture to not promote from within the talent pool anymore since all these other companies have been shutting down.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do not slip on the banana peel since it is an At Will Employment Company like so many others. Have an education backup plan so you are an indispensable asset.

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

    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.

    I have been working at RadioShack full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    If you enjoy technology, you'll enjoy the job for a little while until the corporate yahoo's make you hate it.

    Cons

    6 day work weeks for store managers. Bonus offered, but with impossibly high standards to receive regularly. Constant pressure from upper management. No room for internal growth, 98% of upper management hiring comes from outside the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you can last a few years, could be a decent resume booster due to the high level of operations you are responsible for, however due to the lack of advancement opportunity and the downright awful way they treat their employees, stay far far away. My Regional Sales Director (highest position you'll ever meet) was hired in from Blockbuster, a company recently in Chapter 11. I know of 3 different store managers with 20+ years of experience, two with degrees who were passed over before the second round of interviews. If you have stock in Radioshack, sell now.
