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

    Pros

    play with cool gadgets
    get discounts on said cool gadgets
    make customers happy with the same cool gadgets
    make a 1-2% commission on these cool gadgets

    Cons

    in most stores, employees feel incredibly monitored, controlled and micromanaged. There's no room to breathe and no independence. Given a little more space, I think sales would increase. I think that every salesperson has their own style and methods for closing a sale. RadioShack makes you use their scripts and push the products that upper management (in another city) thinks my customers want.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give sales people some room and have a little faith in us. your entire company will grow if you do.

    I worked at RadioShack full-time

    Pros

    discounts! amount depends on the product line.
    decent pay plus commissions on sales.
    easy hours and not too much stress

    Cons

    Looking back, this certainly wasn't the worst job I've had. But we were told to sell products that our customers didn't like or need. Moving up requires brownnosing with the management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    learn about your customers and try to sell products that interest them
