No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

They offer get cellphone plans to their associates. They have good store discounts for employees. The schedule is more flexible for associates than for managers.

Cons

They always wanted more. The company wanted you to shove cellphone sales down each customers throat. You were consistently pressured to increase sales. Pushing cell phones on each and every customer even if you knew that you sold that person a phone 2 weeks ago and they aren't eligible for a new phone for a few years.

Advice to Management

Offering better customer service doesn't mean pressuring each and every customer who can in the door.
