    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 for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It's just a job and you do receive a very poor spiff compensation for selling phones. The spiff compensation two years ago was very nice

    Cons

    There is too many to list! It was a good thing that the CEO resigned or was fired! He took an almost 300% pay increase while the rest of us suffered in our spiff compensation. You will be treated like dogs if you hit your unattainable attach metrics. The executives are so out of touch with these metrics that if it were that easy you guys get your butts down here and see if you could do it! The answer would be a huge NO. The customers are as dumb as the come! We are always being interrupted by a prepaid customer who is having a problem with their garbage phone!! Stay away from this company as it will drive you nuts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You people need to go far away!!!
