Pros

Lots of experience and management opportunities for those new to the workforce.

Cons

Odd hours, low pay, contradictory management, low morale.

Advice to Management

Catering to the old customers from Radio Shack's heyday is driving the company to irrelevancy. It's time to modernize.

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere. Most of the people are great to work with.

    Cons

    High turnover. At the sales associate level: They pay minimum wage, no matter how long you've been there. Constantly changing commission & the goals you have to meet to achieve it. No raises whatsoever. This includes if you become a key holder/person in charge. During the short period they had Assistant Mgrs, they only pay them $8.40/hr. To make up for the raise in pay, you get less commission than the sales associates. Therefore, the pay still equals the same. Even the store managers don't make what you would think is fair, for holding such a position. They dangle the possibility of corporate jobs in front of you. They tell you you can work your way into positions. Even if you are qualified for the position, it is not what you know. It's who you know.

    Advice to Management

    Give yearly raises for doing a good job, & for holding positions of higher responsibility. Quit blowing money on things that don't help the company. If less was blown, it could be spent on paying the employees.

    It is all about scamming.

    Pros

    No heavy lifting, air conditioned indoors

    Cons

    Threaten to fire employees who do not sell products when the sales are based partly on chance, pays minimum wage with a commission that only bumps it up about 20 cents per hour, no benefits worth taking seriously (like no tuition reimbursement), nearly no room for advancement, managers want employees to use deception just to sell more products, want employees to bug customers with so many promotions that make the customers very annoyed,

    Advice to Management

    Management knows what is going on and they are too unethical to care, so I have no advice for upper management.
