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

Pros

Target employees are great most days they will be the only ones to talk with. Target discount.

Cons

Pay is horrible district managers are idiots. Do not expect any growth with them they will not survive past march 2013 read the q3 investor call radikshack is calling it quits with target a d they will not promote you to another location (ask your Dm what hapend with the Sam's club buyout) unless you love standing around for hours with low pay and 3 hours of conference calls each week and hundreds of text from the dm revving you for sales with no inventory or the phones no one wants and can buy cheaper any place else stay away.

Advice to Management

Stop lying to the managers and get some inventory no one is going to order something when you can go less then a Block away and buy it cheaper. Stop pushing your epp plans they are crap at least best buys insurance is a zero deductible and they give you a free loaner phone. Radikshack epp $100 deductible and a 2 week turn around all for 8$ a month who would do that. Why can't they get iPhone 5 yet if you are going to offer presales make sure you can get the product great customer service no wonder they are almost bankrupted.

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

    Pros

    The OLD national contests and any other thing over 6 years old. The NEW RS is crap.

    Cons

    Pay, hours, morons from other FAILED companies that come to join upper management... Not to hard to figure out why it is tanking right now.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue, listen to the 5 or 6 senior managers you have left and take it to heart. Those of us who were there and then were relieved of duties in the last year or so know where this is all headed. What a joke.

    I worked at RadioShack full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If trained properly, it can be successful. Certain managers and district managers work with the employees. Other than that, it can be fun if under certain circumstances

    Cons

    hmmm.. at least 20 words.. i could write a book. Sales assoicates are treated like crap, pay is miminal wage, hours are crappy. and if you are a store manager, you are forced to work overtime with LITTLE overtime pay (i averaged 70 hours a week, 30 of it overtime. id be lucky if i saw 100.00 in overtime over a 2 week period)
    they expect managers to work by themselves (or at least in my district)
    district manager was little help

    Advice to Management

    if anyone from radio shack actually reads this..
    TAKE CARE OF YOUR EMPLOYEES!
    Train them properly
    Dont give them impossible goals
    TAKE CARE OF YOUR MANAGERS!
    You expect the world from them with little help given to them.
