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

Pros

Commissions and monthly bonuses are available. Hours of operations are reasonable for retail.

Cons

Too many overpriced addons that you are required to sell and conference calls almost daily. They pay rookie management overtime coeffiecent.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Less conference calls

    Former Employee - Stock Guy in New York, NY

    I worked at RadioShack part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The discounts of some products and the outside retail partner benefit programs are really the only reason to work here.

    Cons

    Unrealistic sales goals. Incentives are constantly changing by being removed or greatly reduced. Outside companies do not view former employees in a positive manner.
