    I worked at RadioShack part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Overall good customer outlook. Work life balance is fair .

    Cons

    Upper management has never worked in stores so really do not know what it takes to operate a store and keep employee turnover low. Upper management pushes way to much on numbers and not enough on making sure that the stores have good knowledgeable employees as well as managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you see that you have a former employee that is willing to comeback to your company you really should reach out to rehire that employee.

    Pros

    great place to work if your on top of your game.

    Cons

    No balance for fork and social life. When your short of staff you have to work all the time. A lot to do basically you do everything in the store for a low pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more hours for payroll and pay more to Asm because in most locations they do more than the managers.

    Former Employee - Sales Associate - Part Time in Grand Rapids, MI

    I worked at RadioShack part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    i really appreciated the break from the automotive world and working weekends here on the side for an extra $300 a month and it was fun to get to talk with the employees and the customers, especially the ones that came back

    Cons

    while i really appreciate the changes radioshack has made to help keep the company afloat including new product line and the new pay plan, it was kind of sad to hear that the district manager was saying great things about me for getting through ALL my training so fast when some store managers havent even completed the second of the third phase of training, especially being on the weekends only to find out that after 4 months of working there that my manager had to let me go(he was an awesome manager tho) because of a new corporate thing and they had to cut everyones hours and he was really nice about it but then again i heard that they might go bankrupt in 2015 but people always seem to put a new date on them going bankrupt

    I worked at RadioShack part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    You can make more than minimum wage if you mange to sell cell phone plans, batteries, and warranties. The stores are smaller so have less products to worry about and organize.

    Cons

    They stress too much to sell batteries and phone plans to every customer they that walks in. The hours can also be very long and as any retail job goes, you have to work on weekends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always look for what improvements can be made for the employees

    Pros

    An excellent retail job that pays well if you are a motivated and sales driven assosicate. The work environment is great with a lot to learn everyday about technology. Also, great employee discounts and benefits.

    Cons

    Close to no opportunities for advancement, have to work on weekends and holidays. With RadioShack's slowing business, monthly goals can be difficult to meet and upper management is constantly changing company policies.
