Pros

I've been here for 11 months now and I have just been promoted to MIT (Manager In Training) Let me tell you, it's been one heck of a ride so far. You learn about providing excellent customer service, electronics, and the wireless industry. After you get through the drudgery of learning everything, work becomes fun. The awesome customers you will meet will make it all worth the while. Having a good manager is important, my old manager was a burnout and once he left and I got a new manager who knew what she was doing, I started selling several phones, and work become fun. So its all about having a good manager and a competent staff. If you come to work with a positive attitude every day and you are motivated then you will sell phones, get promoted, grow as a person and have fun in the process

Cons

Starting pay is very low and even after moving up, it still isn't very good. The Radioshack NSA learning program does not prepare you very well for actually tackling day to day inquiries that customers have. Also their wireless simulations for activating Sprint, Verizon, and AT&T phones aren't accurate and they do not show you how to sell phones

Advice to Management

Start implementing the New York concept store nationwide
