    I have been working at RadioShack full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Still employed. Commission. Flexible days off. Resume builder.

    Attrition. Covering shifts of the less responsible. Work/Life imbalance. Day to day challenges of selling. Day to day challenges of keeping the doors open.

    Let that which truly does not matter slide. Work hard. Don't complain, much. Do your job and then some.

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

    Pros

    Easy, super laid back, plenty of free time to play videogames or do homework while at work. Pretty much the perfect job for any college student.

    Cons

    Long hours and low pay

    Advice to Management

    Should of made better decisions but instead you hired unintelligent people who drove the company into the ground


  8. Radioshack suits students that go to full time well, but not many incentives for full time employees.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Depending on your location of course, but it's a chill laid back job. Not many people know RadioShack still exists.

    Cons

    Pay is minimum wage plus commission, if your location is slow, that means you're working for minimum wage.

    Advice to Management

    Managers are pretty much slaves to district managers, or recently "regional managers". Radioshack must change it's business mindset otherwise it will continue to go downhill.

    I worked at RadioShack full-time

    Pros

    It was commission based so you can make more money than hourly alone. Opportunity for interaction with many different people. Sales experience

    Cons

    There was a state of micro management going on Which made it an unpleasant work environment. All management was constantly stressed made you feel bad for them. They started cutting back commission by changing the structure which by the end made it not even worth working there.

    Advice to Management

    Respect employees instead of only looking at bottom line.
