I can't believe this is my life.

Current Employee - Sales Associate - Part Time in Charlotte, NC
Current Employee - Sales Associate - Part Time in Charlotte, NC

I have been working at RadioShack part-time (more than an year)

Pros

Get paid to do nothing, only work mid shifts, pretty easy to request time off. No stringent responsibility, so you can basically do whatever you like. It's a pretty easy job.

Cons

Low pay, no benefits, no room to move up, constant micromanaging, totally clueless managers and district managers, poor computer systems etc.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do your job so associates and managers can do theirs.

    I worked at RadioShack full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Company car and free gas

    Cons

    Required 6 day work weeks. Constant micro-management. No money spent on store improvements. Low pay for managers and associates only allows for the hiring of the bottom of the barrel. I was a DM and had never seen so much internal theft. I don't condone theft, but if you pay your people as bad as they do then treat them horribly, this will happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Changes need to be made from the top down. I suggest you either close down and liquidate, or sell off to a proven company like Best Buy.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
