A retail dinosaur on it's last leg.

Store Manager (Current Employee) Pittsburgh, PA

ProsGood entry level opportunities at some locations.

ConsVery poor business ethics, including illegal activity.
70+ hours/week for many store managers at a low salary.
Poor budget for staffing.
Upper management typically uses threats of termination to increase performance.
Sales training is low quality and badly outdated.
Supply channels are slow and misguided.

Advice to Senior ManagementRetail has changed dramatically over the last 10-15 years and Radio Shack has failed to adapt. This is way the store has lost always all of it's market share. The organization needs to be entirely redesigned in order to avoid bankruptcy.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
