No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Control your own income through your actions and abilities
Hands on customer service
Experience running a business from the small details to the big ones
Rewards for doing a great job

Cons

Long hours
Promised time off or bonuses that you won't get
Incentives that are not reachable
Micro-Management
Dated product line
Prices too high for the market

Advice to Management

The company was well run when DMs used oversight not Micro-Management techniques. If a GM cannot perform the required duties then replace them with someone who is able. Poor training and poor execution of sales plans and visual merc plans have left customers confused and angry. And the product selection is very dated and overpriced.
