    Pros

    All of my co-workers and managers were very helpful in learning about the many product we offered and how to use the computer system.

    Cons

    There was way too many training videos and worksheets. It took me about 3 weeks to get through all the training materials because I had to keep stopping to help customers in between.

    Advice to Management

    RadioShack was a very nice company to work for, the manager and other employees were very nice. I think RadioShack is doing a good job of letting people know they have expanded their products they offer.

    Pros

    Working with a respective team who are well aware of innovative technology.
    For the most, learning about technology is really beneficiary, and teaching customer or other individuals of the product is rewarding.
    Management are underrated, but the company did have a lot of growth.

    Pay
    The simple fact that commission rate decreased during a two year span.

    Pay workers for what they deserve, and not take advantage of them.

    Knowledge of the latest cell phone technology. Good pay, ok benefits. Flexible scheduling. Fun atmosphere. Small stores and light staff so you build relationships with customers in a one-on-one setting.

    Large corporation with way too many levels of management, as a result, information travels very slowly through the chain of command. Procedures and policies were constantly changing.
