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

    Pros

    Good selection of LED's and resistors.

    Cons

    Customer service must hard sell cell phones with arbitrary goals determined out of thin air.

    Advice to Management

    Salary to low for management duties, up to 10 years at assistant manager, heavy politics, first management store always the worst store in district or region, store performance determined by cell phone sales. Position designed for non college graduates.

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

    Pros

    .............they give you a free T-shirt .

    everything is against you from day one so if you actually have success in this company you will be qualified to work anywhere in retail.

    Cons

    Where do i start.........
    Pay gets cut every year
    Your sales goals increase even if your store traffic doesn't go up
    They change your pay structure to steal money from your check
    there training program is laughable
    your store will always be understaffed
    Out dated selling strategies
    You and your store team will carry the burden for the companies failures
    company policies prevent you from going above and beyond for customers
    company still hasn't become stable since it launched.
    most un orginized company out there.

    Advice to Management

    Management has no power to change anything. It is the Regional and district managers who need to get behind their employees and do some actual work on fixing the company. Better pay for emplyees. better work hours and practices. HIRE ONE MORE PERSON FOR EVERY STORE. keep your managers fresh and rested. UPDATE YOUR SALES TECHNIQUES.
