Pros

Good for students and part-timers who are looking for an active workplace.

Cons

Poor pay. No bump in pay even if you work there for 5 years. Its up to you to sell cellphones and make commission. No other way to increase your paycheck. Only if you get promoted to manager will you make more money and have a bonus. Even then, room for growth is only by becoming a manager. No other way to get promoted no matter how good you are at your job. When they do have a manager position open, they will hire someone from outside the company that has no experience in slaes or electronics rather than promoting from within.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You focus on a complete sales solution, but you don't focus on keeping you employees happy. There is no reason for an employee to stay under your employment for more than a couple of years at most unless they have no ambition.

    Educational, but too much emphasis on certain sales.

    I worked at RadioShack full-time for more than a year

    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.
