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

Pros

most managers are able to keep you up to date on latest technology out there

Cons

must sell batteries and warranty plans for very small commissions on every sale; must sell cell phones to everyone who walks into the store

Advice to Management

pay employees a higher base salary for the hard work and long hours. everyone has to know a lot of information on the latest technology and should be compensated for their time with customers

    I have been working at RadioShack full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Very laid back
    -Benefits are solid including PTO
    -For some reason, RadioShack impresses on a resume

    Cons

    -Pay/Salary is horrible
    -They expect you to sell an extended warranty on everything especially little cables that cost $10
    -Career advancement is horrible

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, raise the pay and commission. Not worth the minimum wage and low percentage commission.

    Their Comp Plan could improve

    Keep an eye on the managers ! The District managers should really start showing up unannounced
