    Pros

    this is the best company to work for. they let us out early on fridays during the summer time. staff meal is great!

    Cons

    some of the delivery guys smell funny. low pay. not all employees speak english. drug testing policy is kinda whack.

    Advice to Management

    No mandatory drug tests. More paid days off. Less management oversight. Let us play HOT97 in the morning (for morale purposes).

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with electronics and providing full customer service when people were unsure what they were looking to buy.

    Cons

    The infrastructure is weak and the company has shut down many stores already. There may not be a RadioShack in 2 years, which is sort of sad to me.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the DIY days and stop trying to compete with Best Buy. There are market shares to be had, but they are likely niche products and won't require as many stores nationwide.

    Pros

    Employee discount, good benefits, flexible work schedules, fast paced, and ability to build good customer rapport.

    Cons

    Micro management from upper management, unrealistic goals for stores that were lower volume compared to $1+ million stores. Constant company changes, low pay with poorly structured commission scales.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micro managing stores and let store managers actually run their stores! While the company has a new CEO, and changes are coming they need to happen faster than the rate it is going now. And with the introduction of Sprint in the stores, stop trying to compete with them by selling your own products that no one wants to buy. The visual merchandising is a nightmare and no one seems to know what they are doing.. Other than that I loved working with my customers and have built friendships with some.
