    Pros

    Great co-worker, employee discount is great, if you need a day or time off, let the store manager know a week before next week schedule and you will get it.

    Cons

    Management don't know what they are do, pay is horrible for the expectations management put on their employees, high goals for a company that is on the edge of bankruptcy, no overtime, management keep changing the pay lower and lower.

    Advice to Management

    Treat the little bit of workforce you have better and get things that people want to buy, not crap.

    Pros

    RadioShack was a great place to learn. It's stores are slow enough that you have time to find your bearings.

    Cons

    - 6 day work weeks - poor work/life balance - poor benefits - failing company Each store only has a staff of 5-10 people who get paid a hair above minimum wage. Hiring quality people for that kind of money is near impossible. There is constant turnover in staff and people get promoted out of necessity rather than by merit. If you sell well, you get promoted. That doesn't make you a good manager, just a good salesperson. No one teaches you how to lead a team. You just muddle through.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company.

    Pros

    If you have the right manager you can sharpen your sales skills and if you are in school and need to make some part time cash its a great job that offers commission. Holiday season offers a great sales boom in any location. All you need is effort and a can do attitude

    Cons

    Rarely do you see a fully staffed store that's actually fully staffed..sometimes difficult to take time off...the amount of work you put in sometimes doesn't match the pay

    Advice to Management

    Raise your wages

    commission physically easy other employees are easy going meet a lot of different people

    Cons

    not enough commission no raises expected goals were unrealistic

    Advice to Management

    the company says it promotes from within but in reality they hire externally and the people they hire for the management positions have no idea what they're doing. respect the employees who deal with the customers if you want the company to do better!

    Pros

    Decent money for few hours if you're decent at selling commissioned items.

    Cons

    Excessive micromanagement and selling pressure. Most middle management espouses selling techniques that make you feel a bit like a shady fella.

    Advice to Management

    You are good at selling cell phones, so sell cell phones. You are the only place to get fiddly electronic bits, so actually train your staff on the fiddly electronic bits so they at least know what they're looking for in the parts drawers. Minimize everything else. Stop forcing customer data collection.
