    I worked at RadioShack (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Even in the last few years, when the company's performance was clearly beginning to slide, it was still a fairly pleasant place to work.

    Cons

    Low pay. Only minimal benefits.

    Advice to Management

    It's too late now (November, 2017).

    I worked at RadioShack part-time

    Pros

    It was an entry level minimum wage job

    Cons

    All of the products customers wanted were in a corporate warehouse. No one wanted to come in to the store and pay to wait to receive products in the mail

    Advice to Management

    A retail store for mostly web only products is just crazy.

    I worked at RadioShack part-time

    Pros

    - Great commission from sales.
    - Initial training was helpful.

    Cons

    - Commission depends on the region that you are in, so if you are working at a region where Radioshack is obsolete, chances are you might get a low check on payday.

    Advice to Management

    - Constant training to staff.

    I have been working at RadioShack full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I had A lot of fun working there because I hired all the right people sometime for the wrong reasons though

    Cons

    You have to make so many metrics every single week and also have to do a ton of tasks. I am this is the way it is now-a-days with many companies. But, Radioshack had us managers doing way to much for way to little of money and still went out of business.
