    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, fun toys to play with, casual uniform

    Cons

    Lousy pay for having to learn so much. Selling mobile phone contracts for sprint, at&t and verizon. Making considerably less than what those companies pay their employees at their stores.

    Advice to Management

    Don't push your manager workload on regular associates

    Besides surrounding yourself with much of the best technology for consumers, its is an incredibly rewarding both helping others with their needs and teaching my associates hy to react to customer issues and questions.

    Cons

    Not much opportunity to move up the ladder after making store manger. Constant struggle to pull inventory into our stores.

    Pros

    Its a great company on the store level, like with managers and other associates. If you like electronics, projects and DIY, it may definitely be the place for you.
    Unlike Best buy.

    Cons

    The "heads" of the company are not wise at all. This probably is and may be why the company went downhill. I am fully aware of whats going on and media knows nothing.

    Pros

    Wonderful people to work with and work was very interesting because there was so much variety to it. Work environment was relaxed and not stressful and dress was casual.

    Cons

    Pay was low and RadioShack did not pay 100% of health care, paid 80% for employee and 50% for dependents. A lot of turn over because of the low pay which resulted in losing really good quality employees.

    Advice to Management

    Need to pay higher salaries to keep quality employees.

    Pros

    The pay is good its based on an Base plus Commission. Hours are flexible and there is room for promotion

    Cons

    Too much work for little pay. Regional and District Managers do not have a sense of what they're doing.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would if you're going to give out information and quizes about new products learn about the actual product rather than relying on managers and sales associate to help you out on the product.
