    I worked at RadioShack part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    kind people, informative and constructive criticism. They let you learn hands on, and were willing to let me take charge of my tasks and get things done. They are patient and understanding and overall good people to be around.

    Cons

    working together as a team with new members is hard for some people that have been there a long time. Some of the employees are tough to work with because they are set in their own ways of doing things and are not looking for any change.

    I worked at RadioShack full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    .............they give you a free T-shirt .

    everything is against you from day one so if you actually have success in this company you will be qualified to work anywhere in retail.

    Cons

    Where do i start.........
    Pay gets cut every year
    Your sales goals increase even if your store traffic doesn't go up
    They change your pay structure to steal money from your check
    there training program is laughable
    your store will always be understaffed
    Out dated selling strategies
    You and your store team will carry the burden for the companies failures
    company policies prevent you from going above and beyond for customers
    company still hasn't become stable since it launched.
    most un orginized company out there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management has no power to change anything. It is the Regional and district managers who need to get behind their employees and do some actual work on fixing the company. Better pay for emplyees. better work hours and practices. HIRE ONE MORE PERSON FOR EVERY STORE. keep your managers fresh and rested. UPDATE YOUR SALES TECHNIQUES.
