Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

You learn (under pressure) but you learn. About phones and other sort of technologies.

Cons

Expect too much for 8 dollars. Comission is 2%. Sucks! Bossy, too much pressure.

Advice to Management

Raise your pay if you expect an associate to learn the entire store.

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

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere. Pretty flexible scheduling. Respects the military. Benefits are pretty good. Pay is good for Store Manager and up. Like being able to genuinely help people with their needs. Store has a fairly diverse selection of products. Company seems to offer good opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    Micro-management. Constant shifting of focuses. Too much pressure to sell products that shy consumers away (ie...service plans on everything and having to ask all guests about their cell phone service). I mean, just let us take care of our guests and when WE see the opportunity to ask about wireless or service plans; let us do it. Dont make it a mandate that will get you written up for not doing.

    Advice to Management

    Allow us to take care of our guests our way. I mean, you trust us to manage your stores...so let us do that. The constant micro-managing is ridiculous. Stop changing focuses (wireless, service plans, hours reductions) all the time. Pick a plan and let it ride for a while. I constantly shoulder the crap that rolls down hill, in order to save the morale of my guys.
