No opinion of CEO

I have been working at RadioShack full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

great talks about electronics, great employee discount, great employee wireless plans,

Cons

a roller coaster company, 3 CEOs in 4 years, this company blows money on anything and everything it believes can help itself. constant pressure on selling accessories with key items. service plans cost more and so is the pressure on selling them. advertising has leveled down to everyone believing the head of the merchandising/ planograms /POP dept, might be a 16 year old novice with photoshop. company wants to get rid of tenured managers because of not adapting to changes quickly, because company changes are.... quickly! company is a haven for wireless fraud, so stores that cant control it cannot sell wireless, but..your sales goals stay the same...and the sales goals are never realistic at all...so finally....no chance to monthly bonus! Radioshack has harbored alot of Blockbuster executives and middle management where their past philosophy was dont care about your people....and it still goes on.....

Advice to Management

every new CEO takes office, gets the crowd pumped up, gets a spike in sales , but ever so slowly, the share holders gain control over them.....again... and its right back to the century old tactics..

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

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere, good managers, great spiffs. Usually make more than 12$ an hour as a regular associate. Vacations, Sick days, paid personal days. Insurance. Always room to rank up!

    Cons

    Micromanaged.
    Very forceful about phone sells. (yes phone sells make the most money; however, it turns away some customers.)

    Advice to Management

    Let employees express who they are and allow them to work their specialty. Pay more spiff for items that make more money (Batteries, RS and auvio items) Encourage employees to want to push our product!
