Educational, but too much emphasis on certain sales.

Pros

The flexible scheduling and getting to work with new and emerging technologies is a lot of fun. If you're a big gadget nerd this is a fantastic place to bring your passion to.

Cons

The compensation and commission left something to be desired, forcing employees to be great salesmen if they wanted to make a decent living wage. I felt that it took away from the idea that people at RadioShack were supposed to have answers about technology, as all management wanted were people who could sell their highest priced products.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Placing more emphasis on a strong knowledge base will help bring customers back for bigger products and generate loyalty. Having employees who will only help you if you're there to make a big purchase is a big turn off for almost anyone.

    Pros

    Laid back. Not really physically demanding at all. Money can be great if you sell phones!

    Cons

    It's a performance based company, and they tract everything you sell and how you sell it. Be prepaid to sell RadioShack Sevice plans! They want you to hit all sorts of metrics, which can be very hard to do. And can lead to termination.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop tracking everything!!!!!
