  1. "Not terrible, but not great"

    I worked at RadioShack full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Since they pay Spiffs for cell-phone sales, you can control how much you get paid, to an extent since they pay minimum wage. If you get everything done, you can have some downtime.

    Cons

    Takes a while to become acclimated with the many products, procedures. If you go full-time, you pick up a ton of responsibility... so much so it will likely hinder your cell phone sales, which is pretty much the reason to work. No pay raises, ever. Benefits are mediocre at best.

    Advice to Management

    Better training is necessary. Hiring process questionairre is probably not the best solution to seed out the best recruits.

    I worked at RadioShack part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    kind people, informative and constructive criticism. They let you learn hands on, and were willing to let me take charge of my tasks and get things done. They are patient and understanding and overall good people to be around.

    Cons

    working together as a team with new members is hard for some people that have been there a long time. Some of the employees are tough to work with because they are set in their own ways of doing things and are not looking for any change.
