OK, if you're good at wireless and don't mind busting your behind for minimum wage.

    Former Employee - Sales Associate in New York, NY

    I worked at RadioShack full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    co-workers you meet
    Electronics Discount on mostly everything....a little is better than nothing.

    Cons

    low pay & commission
    no chance to advance yourself as it will literally take over your life (70 hrs weekly to get store in shape)
    Salary as a sales Associate is always the same
    You treated as if your expendable. No appreciation whatsoever its always sell this & sell that to meet your quota.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase pay & put less pressure to sell on associates or go bankrupt. Being positive encourages & motivates unlike these fear tactics from upper management. i.e. If you don't sell 3 service plans you get written up.

    Pros

    They have commission system over the base pay while some other places like Best Buy don't. So on a black friday you make more than other retail employees.

    Cons

    Retail work is hard, what do you expect ?
    District managers always push to sell phones to everyone, regardless of what they came in to buy.
