Confused priorities, clear incentive structure

Senior Sales Associate (Former Employee)
Norfolk, VA

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

ProsGood commission if you focus on and sell cell phones
Flexible place to work - hours/responsibilities
If your competent, not great, just competent their Assistant Store Manager program is a great option

ConsHourly sales focus w/ dps/radioshack card/etc...can be confusing & misleading - focus on where your money comes from - Cell phones
Little task variety - this is a sales/retail job at its heart - you will get bored w/ the task quickly

All right if you like to literally do too much for a lot less.

Manager In Training (Current Employee)
Plantation, FL

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

ProsEasy going. Quiet at times. Commission. Most of the time management is lax. It can be fun toattend expos . You can have your phone out a lot and you get to make commission on every sale.

ConsDifficult things to learn. Bad management all around. They make promises they don't keep. A ton of unnecessary training. Difficult to advance if you don't wanna leave your current store. A lot to know for minimum wage. Not worth the selling and up selling effort. Not as much focus on customer service as is on selling.

Advice to Senior ManagementBetter communication.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

RadioShack Sales Associate

Sales Associate (Current Employee)
Chula Vista, CA

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

ProsWonderful environment where you can grow with your skills in sales. I recommended this job position to anyone looking to build a resume.

ConsThe pay is FAR too low for the stress and tasks you have to do. Sure you get a 2% commission, but that honestly isn't sufficient enough to pay your bills. The only downside to this job is the pay, and the fact that it will take you about two years to get a $1.60 raise.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive your employees raises. There will be a much lower turn over rate.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
