    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    - Commission depends on the region that you are in, so if you are working at a region where Radioshack is obsolete, chances are you might get a low check on payday.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 worked at RadioShack part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    At my store, we had six people on the staff. There were two full-time people: Store Manager (40hr/wk) and Assistant Manager (32-36hr/wk). Then four part-time (4-24hr/wk). We got paid well when we sold phones and it was easy retail work.

    Cons

    The base pay was minimum wage ($7.50/hr) and we would get 2-percent of everything in the store that we sold. Plus, we would get "bonuses" for selling Sprint, Verizon, and AT&T contract and non-contract phones. There would be contests for bonuses on batteries, protection plans, clearance and other RadioShack items. Made for a very competitive environment with a couple of co-workers. Then, RadioShack had just filed for bankruptcy and people were fearing for their jobs and stores.

    Advice to Management

    At the time, pushing contests was too much. It was optional to compete.

    I worked at RadioShack full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The best part would have to be the ability to help customers with questions and sales related to their specific technical needs.

    Cons

    It was terrible that so much of the revenue was dependent on just the wireless sales. Most of the job was spent selling anonymous prepaid phones to local drug dealers.

    Advice to Management

    If management still existed, I'd have to suggest a strong reorganization of the sales goals and product options.

    Great co-workers, great store manager, wide range of interesting customers

    Cons

    Get back to your roots, be honest with customers, stand by the products.
