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

    Pros

    Its a Job. Not a good one bit It's a job for now.

    Cons

    Low Pay / Commissions
    Company could care less about hourly employees
    Management above Store Manager are seriously lacking

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Shack had its day but it is now 11:55 PM. The end is near. Break the company in to pieces and sell while you still can.

    I worked at RadioShack full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    As a store manager, I was able to create my own atmosphere in my store. Having not worked in corporate retail before, I was able to gain much insight into the actual costs of doing business.

    Cons

    I was working 6+ days a week, 50+ hours, and my effective hourly was often somewhere around $11/hr. While there was a corporate structure, we would often see management skipping levels, to where as a store manager I was getting micromanaged by the Area Director.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Unlike many people, I don't think that the sales goals were all that unreasonable. I do feel that your demand/compensation ratio is terrible. Don't base DM's bonus structure on their SMs salaries, and they might offer more money for better quality managers. Also, develop some sort of sales training. Not a "company buy-in" training, not a "new product" training, a SALES training. Train your SALESPEOPLE in how to SELL. And quit turning over your mid-level managers (DM, RM, AD, etc.) Let a team develop. Watching something grow is a slow process. If you put in a new DM every time you have a bad season, you're going to continue to have inexperienced management teams. If you keep beating them up over numbers on a DAILY BASIS, they're going to burn out faster than you can train them.
