    I worked at RadioShack full-time

    Pros

    After working for 'the shack' for over 15 years, looking back, I must admit it was a nice place to work. I always came across interesting customer who became friends; great co-workers who were a pleasure to work with and an incentives package which was very attractive. During the first 6 to 8 years or so employees were nicely rewarded with attractive commission, gifts ( lottery tickets, free lunches, nice coupons, and even tickets to a variety of sporting and concert events) and contest prizes, e.g. travel vouchers and vacation trips. Those were obviously the glory days when the company bragged of its cash reserves. Sadly those reserves dissolved over the years and so went the added incentives for employees to clock in/out day after day.

    Cons

    As time went by the paste of keeping up with the daily operations i.e. product training, merchandising, customer demands as well as management demands, steadily increased while the rewards to make it all worthwhile steadily subsided.

    Advice to Management

    As the decline in customers footprint continues, for lower prices on amazon, ebay, etc., hang in there as long as you can. Just don't forget that the people who serves your customers are your most valuable assets.
