    Pros

    This job could be a good job for someone looking for their first retail sales job. RadioShack will train you to be able to make sales.

    Cons

    Having to ask every customer for personal information in today's information security world even for simple battery purchases is embarrassing not only for the employee's but for the customers too.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop making employee's ask people for personal information unless it is absolutely necessary to purchase the product or warranty. In today's sensitive information security world. People that want to create an account that keeps and tracks information and such should be optional and only by customer request.


  2. 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 Management

    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.
