Typical retail sales job with very limited room for growth

Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee)
Los Angeles, CA

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

ConsPoor 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 Senior ManagementYou 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Little consideration for store employees

    Store Associate (Current Employee)
    Denver, CO

    I have been working at RadioShack part-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: Fun dealing with (most of) the general public. With a background in electronics,… Cons: Store shift scheduling: Even though policy requires store managers to post work schedules a week before they take effect, in my district this has never… Advice to Senior Management: Most Radio Shack stores are not set up, nor staffed, to competently peddle wireless handsets competitively with retailers who do nothing else. There's little/no profit… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

    Low pay and high expectations

    Store Manager (Current Employee)
    Reno, NV

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


    Pros: Awesome management experience Commission Monthly bonuses for manager and staff Cons: Too inconsistent, changes way to much. One focus and behavior today, then completely different tomorrow Sales… Advice to Senior Management: Use more consistent systems and the company would be more successful Pay your people what they are worth or… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
