    Pros

    A lot of great people and life long friendships made from working at RadioShack. If you bought into the culture it could be fun at times.

    Cons

    Company is a sinking ship due to online shopping, and not adapting to the times. Potentially ridiculously long hours if in management. Can go weeks without a day off. Recently decided stores would be open on Thanksgiving which is ridiculous. Constantly changing business plans and sales focus and commission structures is frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees better so they are motivated to actually do work.
