I have been working at RadioShack part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The employee discount was excellent (to the point that we joked about how ridiculous it was that we could get discounts on clearance items). The managers (store and district, including team leaders) were flexible and amiable. Perfect part-time job for college students.

Cons

Management gossips and the information trickles down. Managers also quit at the same time and there doesn't seem to be a good process for handling that inconvenience.

Advice to Management

Hire competent employees and keep it together.

    I worked at RadioShack part-time (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.
