Pros

Great way to learn to be a better salesperson.

Cons

Does not see as much advancement within company as hoped.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Express interest in students and future candidates for positions within the company. Offering paid internships would be a great start at fresh ideas, great work and positive name for RadioShack in the college world.

    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.

    I have been working at RadioShack full-time (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.
