    I have been working at RadioShack part-time

    Pros

    I'm so sad that RS is shutting down, it was the best place to work for a young person. It is such a shame that the business no longer exists.

    Cons

    It's difficult to find any, but the main one would be that there's no future opportunity because they are shutting down.

    Advice to Management

    None, it's too late

    I worked at RadioShack full-time

    Pros

    RadioShack gives you exposure to multiple forms of technology and provides training on all upcoming related technologies.

    Cons

    The strong shift away from engineering based devices towards mobile devices seemed to hurt the environment heavily. Management also focused too heavily on pushing products to customers which seemed to negatively impact overall customer experience and made other sales associates uneasy.

    Advice to Management

    In hindsight, RadioShack's management would have benefited from being more aware of the comings and goings of customers on the sales floor and focusing on the niche customer group they had held. The great focus on up-selling customers hurt the overall experience.

    I worked at RadioShack full-time

    Pros

    One of the best reasons to work at radio shack is exercising the mind. Electronics does that very well.

    Cons

    Maybe a down side to working in electronics is when there aren't much customers to show the latest product to
