    I have been working at RadioShack full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company car. Good pay. Good opportunity for bonuses.

    Cons

    Awful executive leadership. Stress put on store managers and expectations for hours worked for store employees is too much. Ethics within the company are non-existent at every level. Poor pay for store level employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better pay for store management to allow district managers to hire good talent.

    Former Employee - Store Manager in Houston, TX

    I worked at RadioShack full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    In the 80's, a manager was the best paid manager in the mall, many making over 100 grand, margins were in the upper 50's, and in a article in US and World Report, Radio Shack, had more paper millionairs than anyone. Bill Gates approached Radio Shack before going to IBM.

    Cons

    Last year 2010 was that of nightmares, yelling screaming at meetings, in thirty years never had recieved a letter of reprimend until 2010 for the smallest reasons even though I was the highest rated Manager in the district and just had won a national sales contest. I compained what was going on and the next day the regional and district manager came to my store, and as one employee discribed acted like terrorist, until I quite. They asked if I wanted to become a District two weeks previous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People are your number one asset trat them better. Einstien said repeating the same thing over and over again and expecting a diffrent result is the definition of insanity, you keep pushing wireless more and more as margins go down and down is insane. Black Fridays ad was mostly wireless, who has time to activate phones on black Friday.
