    I have been working at RadioShack full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pros? There are no pros working at this horrible place, McDonald's is a better place to work than here

    Cons

    Everything, having to sell rip off service plans, maintaining sales numbers that do not benefit you in anyway other than not getting yelled at, radioshack makes it obvious they do not care about you in anyway shape or form, all they care about are numbers not people, worst job I've ever had

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating us like cattle, quit pressuring us into numbers that we have no reason to care about

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at RadioShack part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Staff and management, Great Pay Minimum wage+ Commission, Very flexible with hours and relocating, Great discounts and benefits, Lots of room to move up within the company.

    Cons

    Customers aren't always friendly, Alot of different goals and metrics you have to meet every month, Alot of things to keep track of and offer to every customer, ex: Batteries, Cell phones, Service plans ect.

    Advice to Management

    Don't put so much emphasis on offering things to every customer. Not all customers are right for the things being offered to them, and a lot of them are put off by having so many things thrown at them.
