    I worked at RadioShack full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    As a sales representative it was fun, competitive, flexible, challenging, teammates if the management implemented this in their circle.

    Cons

    As a sales manager after some years it came down to who have you knew and had who were your comrades to get to the next level and you will wait until upper management has changed the culture to not promote from within the talent pool anymore since all these other companies have been shutting down.

    Advice to Management

    Do not slip on the banana peel since it is an At Will Employment Company like so many others. Have an education backup plan so you are an indispensable asset.

    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.
