    I have been working at RadioShack part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If you like playing with electronics the discount was ok.

    Cons

    Their focus on selling smarts was the wrong strategy given the amount of competition. I mean you can buy a smartphone at your local pharmacy.

    I worked at RadioShack full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    the discounts were decent. you do gain alot of product knowledge through trainings, and hands on experience

    Cons

    there were so many negatives. the pay wasn't the greatest or the benefits. and the commission structure was terrible. not to mention just like most retail jobs upper management expected the world from you, with little appraisal or recognition. and most of the time they gave unrealistic goals based off some computer data

    Advice to Management

    even thought the company is no more, they could have done so much like treating employees right for starters. and making real goals and not goals they got from computer data thinking they can read peoples minds. you drive more business with better promotions and not being so harsh on employees especially those who actually tried

    I have been working at RadioShack full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    You can learn a lot about small electronics. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Low pay with too much to do. Favoritism played a big role in moving up employees.

    Advice to Management

    Even though the stores are going out of business, you should have thought about moving up your employees that have been there for some time.

    Fun work experience. Good place to start a sales career. They have training in the products they offer so do not be worried if you are not a tech savvy person.

    Cons

    Depending on location you can be very busy and make good money or slow and barely mare ends meet. Not a lot of room for moving up.

      I worked at RadioShack

      Pros

      Fantastic job, I loved pushing sales, it was a great customer base, awesome products to sell, great co-workers, fun times.

      Cons

      Some of the customers were hard to deal with, every now and then the co-workers and I didn't agree on some things, also the work could be strenuous, and the corporation sucked.

      Advice to Management

      Stop being so hard on your employees. The majority of them are actually trying to meet the quotas and what not. Seriously.

      Pros

      great environment to learn about electronics, flexible hours, great for students looking for extra cash flow

      Cons

      not enough people to sometimes cover shifts at this point in time

      Advice to Management

      Would like to see more advertisements to increase foot traffic in stores, more local community involvement from each store.
