I worked at RadioShack part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

- Ability to make commision
- Employee Phone plans
- 50% off employee discount

Cons

- need to have open availability
- sales drive ( not alot of sales )
- managers and dm's use intimidation factor
- unprofessional
-poorly compensated (minimum wage)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

dont expect the good salesmen or women to stay with your company because other phone companies pay more for performance. Dont intimidate or micromanage the bad sales people. be grateful they are willing to do all the required other work and push wireless sales for minimum wage. Promote those who are qualified or they will go somewhere that will.

    Current Employee - Store Manager in Dalton, GA

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

    Pros

    RadioShack is going back to making commissions on everything in the store, which is a definite plus! There have been many good changes with the new CEO coming in. They do very well in promoting from within. Work hours aren't that bad.

    Cons

    Can be stressful. Upper management can come down on you pretty hard for the smallest things even when holding your accountability. Employees may argue over sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow policy to the T. We may not always agree or like what we have to do but it is our job. Hold yourself accountable and do NOT take shortcuts on anything.
