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

Pros

Easy money, fun job when you enjoy the technoligy world.

Cons

A lot of micro managing.

Advice to Management

Upper management should honestly get rid of the people who are pulling the company into the ground and some what start fresh, getting new management that knows the day and age and that can perform as well as a seniored manager would be a huge benefit.

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

    Pros

    Learned alot about electronics.
    Right before I left there was commission plus salary.

    Cons

    Ridiculous hours, open on major holidays including Christmas. Schedule changes sometimes made last minute.
    Lots of work for minimum wage.
    Upper management hires people that are severely laking in social skills. e.g. My district manager had no social skills at all and seemed like it was painful for him to say hello.

    Obsession with selling phones.

    Was sometimes left alone in store while my manager stepped out.

    Store layout constantly changing.

    Lots of Hypocrisy manger would be on phone a lot while we were told it could not be out on the floor.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees what they are worth instead of minimum wage and end the obsession with selling phones.
