    Pros

    Good way to gain more knowledge about technical things. They do their best to make sure you get enough training to know how to sell the products. Sometimes you'll be lucky enough to win with contest and get a free speaker or Bluetooth headset.

    Cons

    Too stressful to make up for the lack of compensation. The business is putting so much pressure to sell cell phones even though most people coming in only want batteries. Benefits and hours are getting cut to try to save some money.

    I worked at RadioShack

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule
    Learn about different electronic products for tvs, entertainment systems, computer, cell phones, etc.
    Great co-workers and good contests every so often.

    Cons

    As in any retail dealing with upset customers and the pay is just minimum plus comission.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management learn or take some time to understand the location of each RadioShack store is different and thus different type of customers. If mayority of customers are spanish speaking Why put a non spanish speaking manager! makes no sense, like that the manager will never be an asset to the store because there will be no communication between customers and the manager will just be doing office work, not out on the floor with customers.
