    Pros

    Great working staff. Everyone works as a team. Always plenty of opportunity to move up in the company. Management is always there to support.

    Cons

    Support systems are archaic. Multiple systems needed to get an end result. All systems home grown so there is no universal language.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice at this time...

    Pros

    Decent pay rate if you sell enough, not too strenuous. Great employee discount.

    Company has no sense of direction and it tends to affect employee's ability to do their job to the fullest of their potential.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find out what direction you want to go in, and stick with it.

    Pros

    Decent money, hours were ok.

    Cons

    Retail slave labor, it's never enough for corporations and they won't conpensate you for all the extra work someone asks you to do who is trying to move up or make a name for themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't takenyourselves too seriously, have fun.

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

    Pros

    A lot of responsibility, learning a wide range of cool stuff

    Cons

    Minimum wage and terrible commission rates considering every employee needs to become an expert in sales, the product line, communications and customer service just to make an extra 5 cents on a paycheck (and ONLY if the item sold is one of the few items that qualify for a commission).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise the commission rates and hire more qualified individuals. Higher commission would attract better applicants and better employees would attract better customers.
