Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

The only pros was that the store was right next to my house so I didn't have to travel far to go to a job I resent soo badly
Base pay plus commission, so my paycheck would be decent just as long as I sell products.

Cons

Tooo much pressure to sell cell phones!! Didn't matter if you just sold a laptop with printer along with a new ipod touch 32 gb. If you didn't sell a cell phone, manager would get upset. Mind you, I work for Radio Shack in a mall filled with cell phone stores next door! Why would anyone really think of heading over to radio shack for their cell phone, when their phone company is right next door???

Manager and Assistant managers made the environment seemed cold and they would play favoritism

Boring place to work

Advice to Management

Be more friendly and stop hassling workers to sell cell phones when they are practically selling your whole store already!

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

    Pros

    Flexible hours, and most stores are only open for eleven hours.

    Cons

    Upper management is clueless, there is no system for raises, your salary is entirely dependent upon your neighborhood and customers because of sales commission.
