    Pros

    Long established history of company.

    Cons

    Lack of direction, goals, & communication with employees.

    I worked at RadioShack full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people I worked with (Field Sales and Management) were phenomenal. The employee discount was ok. Training programs.

    Cons

    Management was disconnected from staff. Benefits were not on par with other similar companies. Little to no work-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Hire competent upper management and get a better benefits broker. As much as insurance costed, there should have been better plans.

    Pros

    Discount on batteries. Co workers were cool. Got to watch tv all day since it was usually dead. Reps were cool.

    Pay sucked, corporate never knew what they were doing. Radio shack is dying off and they were struggling to keep afloat by any means. Commission policies and pay out changed every 3 months.

    Close your doors. Stop trying to be like best buy. Stop selling phones, stick to parts and pieces. Train your employees more thoroughly and allow your store managers to have more control over their store.
