Current Employee - Assistant Store Manager in Santa Monica, CA

I have been working at RadioShack full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Nice co workers, Good wireless discounts. they are very flexible with the schedules. that is about it.

Cons

awful pay. inept management. i repeat awful pay. they also give you rules to follow and when customers complain they throw you under the bus. way too focused on contract wireless when the entire world is moving away from it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

increase base pay. only hire managers and district managers that have worked in a radio shack store for a year at least.

    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.

    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!!!
