    I have been working at RadioShack part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great place to practice sales skills. Commissions offer incentives to sell more. Management tends to be fairly knowledgeable.

    Cons

    Very low base pay. Job is really only good as a supplemental "second job" as a result. Benefits are also lousy.

    Advice to Management

    Increase base pay and benefit package to attract the competent staff Radio Shack is known for. Concentrate on making money on the technical assistance that has been the company's primary strength.

    I worked at RadioShack full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Probably the only good thing about working here is the discounts you get on your phone/s. You can have one for each carrier. Depending on your relationship with your coworkers it might be fun, and just the overall retail experience.

    Cons

    Everything. So much work with absolutely no recognition. No raises EVER unless you're a manager and get promoted to a higher volume store. They're constantly changing the commission and every time they changed it, it was worse. Your job is always being threatened. The turn over rate is ridiculous. It's just not worth the stress for minimum wage. If you get hired here I would suggest getting a couple months of experience,...

    Advice to Management

    Stop changing the policies/pay rate every three months. Stop firing long time employees for stupid reasons without conducting proper investigations. If you're going to preach "Lead by example" you should start doing it.

    I worked at RadioShack part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You will learn a lot about technology and phones as well as sales techniques. Get to sell three big companies verizon, sprint, and at&t. Helped land me a job at sprint.

    Cons

    You are paid minimum wage, commission pay is very low. (It Gets lower an lower every year) You are expected to do so much in such little time. District managers pick and choose favorites, they also will always call in to check numbers, and if you're not meeting quota boom your hours get cut. I was working for the company for two years and was always under appreciated. One time on my Cowworker's last day working we had...
