Pros

Benefits
Room for advancement
Cellphone Service Discounts

I love the cellphone service discounts. I have the most popular phone from 1 of the top three carriers. That is by far the number one perk. I was also promoted twice within my first year, which lets you know there is room for advancement. I think they are a great company to work for, i would work for them again if i ever needed to. But, at this point in my life i need a better looking paycheck.

Cons

Constant changing of commission rates
Base pay is non-competitive
Constant pressure from corporate

Advice to Management

Pay employee's better commissions and watch the company improve. Customer service will increase and fraud sells will decrease. Take better care of your employees

    I worked at RadioShack full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The staff. Not all stores are stocked with dorks working, being surrounded by friends in an electronics store helps pass the time.

    Cons

    Always something to do and you're never selling enough. Treated poorly, and not much recognition for performance.

    I have been working at RadioShack full-time

    Pros

    flexible hours to a point, easy to request days off (unpaid), opportunity to make extra money in a store that sells lots of phones

    Cons

    Salary is a waste unless you're a college student, work long hours for minimum wage, getting robbed at gunpoint happens frequently, lots of work and things to learn with little pay.

    Advice to Management

    Increase hourly pay for assistant managers since they do more work than regular associates; $8.36/hr is very lame. Store manager salary needs to increase as well for the amount of work they do. Barely $1000 every 2 weeks just doesn't cut it
