I have been working at RadioShack full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Most people I have encountered at HQ truly care about RS succeeding. They also are helpful across different functions. Not as silo'd as other companies I have worked for. Integrity is a strong value here.

Cons

HQ workers are too timid. Scared to break out of the mold and go against normalcy.

Advice to Management

Need a consistent voice from leadership regarding key initiatives.

    I worked at RadioShack part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are none i can think of!!! Pay is minimum wage plus commission of $14 per contract phone sold and $7 per prepaid phone sold. With the extremely low foot traffic, It's tough to sell even 10 phones in a month, not enough customers. Extremely high pressure sales. They also want you to sell extended warranties on literally everything. They want you to treat customer like car salesman would, bully the customer into buying warranty, don't take no for an answer, make the customer feel like they are stupid for not buying it. Radioshack views customers as nothing more than walking wallets.

    Cons

    Note to radioshack: You're the only retailer that offers extended warranties on items such as sd cards, hdmi cables, ethernet cables, aux cables, car chargers, alarm clocks, etc..... none of your competitors sell extended warranties on those items.. y do u think that is....hmmm no wonder your company stock is a penny stock!!!!! A typical non cell phone sale requires you to offer extended warranty on every item purchased, then ask customer for their cell phone account information to check upgrade eligibility, then offer batteries, then solicit customer to donate to livestrong foundation. A typical cell phone sale requires you to upsell at least thirty dollars of accessories with each phone. Then you have to upsell the extended warranty on the phone itself, the cell phone case, the car charger, the sd card, and any other accesories the customer may purchase for the phone, also try to sell the customer some batteries, and then solicit them to donate to livestrong foundation.

    Advice to Management

    Customers are not walking wallets that are there for pillaging.
