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

Pros

You will most definitely learn how to sell items on the floor, like it or not.

Cons

RadioShack cuts corners in the most obvious of ways. They under staff stores to save money, over work the staff, (especially lower management meant to lead the sales team) they applaud team destructive sales tactics etc

Advice to Management

Us sales associates actually pay attention to the neglect that upper management at RadioShack have towards their employees. We also have voices.

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

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere. Most of the people are great to work with.

    Cons

    High turnover. At the sales associate level: They pay minimum wage, no matter how long you've been there. Constantly changing commission & the goals you have to meet to achieve it. No raises whatsoever. This includes if you become a key holder/person in charge. During the short period they had Assistant Mgrs, they only pay them $8.40/hr. To make up for the raise in pay, you get less commission than the sales associates. Therefore, the pay still equals the same. Even the store managers don't make what you would think is fair, for holding such a position. They dangle the possibility of corporate jobs in front of you. They tell you you can work your way into positions. Even if you are qualified for the position, it is not what you know. It's who you know.

    Advice to Management

    Give yearly raises for doing a good job, & for holding positions of higher responsibility. Quit blowing money on things that don't help the company. If less was blown, it could be spent on paying the employees.

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

    Pros

    There is probably one not far from where you live.

    Cons

    Company doesn't care much about employees.
    Pay is very low compared to what abilities they demand.
    POS system is the worst thing possible.

    Advice to Management

    Too many things wrong - would take a week to list advice.
