    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.

    Pros

    When you work here it is like you are working with family. Things are starting to change hopefully for the better.

    Cons

    With the struggles the company has had in the past few years it is sad to think it might not continue.

    Advice to Management

    Get some merchandise in the stores people want to purchase, get out of the cell phone business

    Pros

    ability to move up in the company as fast as you want to move up, you just have to show that you want too. Awesome peers at every level that I was a part of I loved my peers and any growth or struggles one may have was shared together as a group.

    Cons

    obvious changes, that occurred, corporate would always blame bad performance on store level when many times it was corporate decisions or policy that were hand cuffing managers and employees.

    Advice to Management

    It's too late... But I just wish that the company had evolved faster. I know customers would complaint constantly about how different Radioshack is now and it's not like it used to be. In reality the problem was that it "use to be" leading edge and didn't keep that approach.

    Pros

    This was a great inside sales role with no limitation on geography or customer type. The product assortment was very profitable which made it easy to reach your sales goals. All of the employees and management were helpful and supportive. Really it was one of the best overall employment experiences I have had.

    Cons

    RadioShack couldnt pull out of the downward spiral of bankruptcy.

    Advice to Management

    If radioshack does continue in some capacity after the bankruptcy having a small inside sales team again would be beneficial to the new organization.

    Pros

    Great people, reasonable expectations, decent work life balance, generally a fire drill weekly versus daily. Salary fair for Ft Worth

    Cons

    Business Leadership Drives too many changes in projects. Too many large backend processes keeps IT from looking like a nimble organization.
