I worked at RadioShack full-time for more than a year

Pros

It's a job and I got paid on time. If you push cell phones and specialized services maybe you earn a decent paycheck. They may move you to management.

Cons

Management has no clue how to treat their employees. Part time can end up being full time doing job duties that you aren't getting paid to do. They are willing to threaten to fire an employee for taking a chunk of earned leave. Come back from that chunk of leave and get counseled for not selling enough phones during a 2 day period rather than taking the full period into consideration that you were on leave. The job isn't hard but working here is a lot more stress than it is worth.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest in your employees, promote the good ones to management, get rid of incompetent management.

    Pros

    the customers where great they made you laugh and most where faithful customers.

    Cons

    they make their employees force customers to buy a phone to get more money, they also make these ridiculous goals you must reach if not you get in trouble, and many more things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get new staff and new ways to run a business

    I worked at RadioShack full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Decent pay if you want to work hard
    You earn your pay in this company

    Cons

    Push a lot of extra plans to customers .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with your employees. They are a really good resource of why your company is no longer the leading edge in the industry. A little bit more training in how to sale would be a good thing as well. I know you teach them on the sales floor but they need to know the intangibles of a good salesperson.
