    Current Employee - Store Manager in Louisville, KY

    I have been working at RadioShack full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Working with people
    Opportunity to bonus

    Cons

    Micromanagement
    No matter how good you are doing, you will hear where you are failing
    Hard to make a bonus given the criteria given
    Metrics Driven company, its not about the customers, its how well you are doing on a dashboard. You could be missing YOY numbers but as long as you are hitting your metrics you are a hero

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to your customers and find out why they come shop us over and over. Stop putting all your resources in wireless where you are set up to lose money. Focus on your core categories that actually make you money.

    Current Employee - Sales Manager Target Mobile in Sioux Falls, SD
    Current Employee - Sales Manager Target Mobile in Sioux Falls, SD

    I have been working at RadioShack full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Target employees are great most days they will be the only ones to talk with. Target discount.

    Cons

    Pay is horrible district managers are idiots. Do not expect any growth with them they will not survive past march 2013 read the q3 investor call radikshack is calling it quits with target a d they will not promote you to another location (ask your Dm what hapend with the Sam's club buyout) unless you love standing around for hours with low pay and 3 hours of conference calls each week and hundreds of text from the dm revving you for sales with no inventory or the phones no one wants and can buy cheaper any place else stay away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop lying to the managers and get some inventory no one is going to order something when you can go less then a Block away and buy it cheaper. Stop pushing your epp plans they are crap at least best buys insurance is a zero deductible and they give you a free loaner phone. Radikshack epp $100 deductible and a 2 week turn around all for 8$ a month who would do that. Why can't they get iPhone 5 yet if you are going to offer presales make sure you can get the product great customer service no wonder they are almost bankrupted.
