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

Pros

Sales experience, provided that most associates have no sales experience. A marginal discount on Cell phone providers via employee line (which is a pain to coordinate but is dependent on your representative).

Cons

Low and ever changing pay structures can cause any employee to ask themselves: "Why am I doing this?".

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop calling sooo many meetings at HQ. Try to find a pay structure that is fair. Try to find a solid direction for this company and stick to it.

    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

    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.
