Amazing manager (my opinion, employees in other stores would say different)
Huge opportunity for learning

Cons

High level of corporate politics
Low potential for career growth
Performance bonus system is counter productive

Employees are better salespeople when they're happy and confident in their financial security.

    I worked at RadioShack

    Pros

    I enjoyed learning about electronics and would occasionally have a good customer. I made a few friends as well.

    Cons

    Constant micromanaging that made me feel like Peter from "Office Space" getting yelled at by 8 different bosses about my TPS Reports. Unrealistic sales goals were placed at a higher importance than customer service (unless it was the time of year for customer service surveys). Changing planograms every week and then changing them back a week later only to change them one more time at the request of a micromanaging superior. Pay was just enough to make rent and bills after a 40+ hour work week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees better than minimum wage if you're going to subject them to this kind of ridiculous business model.

    I have been working at RadioShack part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The schedule is very flexible, discounts are great, also the customers are very relaxed so it makes for a relaxed work environment.

    Cons

    If you want a job here u have to be a salesman. If you're not a salesman get ready to learn how to be one.
