    Pros

    Good job that teaches young people how to overcome their fear of talking to new people while also teaching them how to prep for their job by doing research on the products.

    Cons

    Lots of returns..thus hurting your financial haul. Trying to sell poor off name products (auvio) at a premium price hurts consumer confidence.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hire young enthusiastic workers who represent your company's objective.

    Pros

    You had the ability to influence the company results in a bigger part. You were empowered to run your business as a business owner and could teach people how to run their business from a PnL point of view.

    Cons

    There is no more district manager position and they are cutting so extreme now with labor that RadioShack currently is a shell of what it was.

    Advice to Management

    Find consistency and stop letting so many people go. Listen to your field operators and be innovative. Spend money to make money

    Talk to people, Great work environment.

    Cons

    potential bad customers experience while working

    Advice to Management

    Would rather have store managers run store and not allow micro managing to happen. There were issues of DM micromanaging stores

    I worked at RadioShack part-time

    Pros

    Working in a team environment. Working around a quota. Employer is very flexible when it comes to giving time off for a vacation

    Cons

    Not something you can make a career out of due to the lack of employee input into certain things that go oin in the store.

    Advice to Management

    Take the workers advice when it comes to certain situations. Don't have extreme quotas or expectations for certain stores when their locations aren't able to reach those goals

    Pros

    RadioShack had some of the best people working for it. The environment was exciting and challenging.

    Cons

    Some BAD decisions were made, and NOT entirely at the fault of the then management, but directed by outside sources.

    Advice to Management

    For the new owners, there are a lot of people which really understand the business who are still there. Hopefully, you will listen to them and keep the RS brand going. Trying to change too much might be a recipe for disaster.
