Former Employee - Sales Associate in San Diego, CA

I worked at RadioShack part-time (less than an year)

Pros

Good selection of LED's and resistors.

Cons

Customer service must hard sell cell phones with arbitrary goals determined out of thin air.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Salary to low for management duties, up to 10 years at assistant manager, heavy politics, first management store always the worst store in district or region, store performance determined by cell phone sales. Position designed for non college graduates.

    Former Employee - Store Manager in Chicago, IL

    I worked at RadioShack full-time (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.
