I worked at RadioShack part-time for less than a year

Pros

During the christmas holidays it was great because everyone was buying cell phones, which led to higher spiff. Most of the staff were young and friendly, except for a few. My manager was pretty laid back and didn't care if we used our cell phone while the store was slow. I am also a college student so my manager definitely tried to work with my school schedule.

Cons

Due to the fact that I am a twenty year old girl a good percentage of customers didn't think I was as knowledgeable as my male employees. Even though I had been working there longer then most of them. Also the training was not adequate at all. It mostly focused on cell phones with hardly any training on more technical stuff such as soldering and connectors.

    I have been working at RadioShack full-time for more than a year

    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!!!!!
