Pros

great talks about electronics, great employee discount, great employee wireless plans,

Cons

a roller coaster company, 3 CEOs in 4 years, this company blows money on anything and everything it believes can help itself. constant pressure on selling accessories with key items. service plans cost more and so is the pressure on selling them. advertising has leveled down to everyone believing the head of the merchandising/ planograms /POP dept, might be a 16 year old novice with photoshop. company wants to get rid of tenured managers because of not adapting to changes quickly, because company changes are.... quickly! company is a haven for wireless fraud, so stores that cant control it cannot sell wireless, but..your sales goals stay the same...and the sales goals are never realistic at all...so finally....no chance to monthly bonus! Radioshack has harbored alot of Blockbuster executives and middle management where their past philosophy was dont care about your people....and it still goes on.....

Advice to Management

every new CEO takes office, gets the crowd pumped up, gets a spike in sales , but ever so slowly, the share holders gain control over them.....again... and its right back to the century old tactics..

    Pros

    Promote from within (at least they used to)
    Convenient locations

    Cons

    Poor work life balance
    Poor inventory system
    Overpriced
    Too many "focus areas" detracts from anything really being focused on
    Company seems to have lost its way; formerly was a very focused on providing customers with the solutions they wanted and the answers they needed, but poor development of the people and poor quality hires (at all levels) has led to an erosion of the company's culture.

    Advice to Management

    Try to figure out what your customers want and stick to it

    Pros

    You get to use your phone at work, co-workers are normally cool, and the job isn't hard.

    Cons

    You make minimum wage, all district managers don't care you or anyone in the store, the commission isn't everything they tell you it is. Your job is always on the line even if you hit every goal the past three months.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the employees below you and stop acting high and mighty.... seriously its just radio shack... get over it.
