Only if you really need a job!

Sales Associate (Former Employee) Frankfort, IL

ProsFinancial Benefits:
Good employee discount deals on cell phone contracts
Employee discount is decent

The employees I worked with were pretty nice and overall good people.

ConsOur store manager was sometimes too busy getting her nails done and I was left alone in the store multiple times, even as a new employee. Radio Shack also wants you to up sell (a lot), even to the point where we would bargain with the customer that they could return the item right after the transaction went through, just to make sure the store statistics were still in check. These same figures are also the ones that determine if they are going to keep you as an employee. It's a sales position first, which I understand and it's not for everyone (it wasn't for me) but the stuff we did in our store just to make the numbers come out right....is that really value for the customer?

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on the customer. What do they need and what are they trying to do with the products at RadioShack. I think the stores also need to cut down on the clutter products and actually carry good products to compete with Best Buy and Amazon.

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

    Corporate fights daily to suppress what actually works and replace it with gobbledygoop that they dream up on Acid.
