    Fun work experience. Good place to start a sales career. They have training in the products they offer so do not be worried if you are not a tech savvy person.

    Depending on location you can be very busy and make good money or slow and barely mare ends meet. Not a lot of room for moving up.

    I worked at RadioShack full-time

    Pros

    Radioshack was an amazing experience that not only allowed me the opportunity to grow but also afford me a chance to earn a full ride scholarship.

    Cons

    Radioshack of the past was trying to do too much with too little resources. Rather than being great a few things they wanted to be amazing at all.

    Advice to Management

    Please invest in your people and products of the future. By investing in your leaders you will continue to grow.

    I have been working at RadioShack part-time

    Pros

    Easy job that gets you good experience in the technology industry, easy to move from this job to working for a phone carrier.

    Cons

    Doesn't pay well, you'll be forced to try to sell expensive headphones to people who just want a fuse.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to focusing on electronics hobbyists, the forced modern technology sales frustrate our customers and drive them away.

    Pros

    Great place to work, challenging duties, and a lot of face to face sales interaction. I enjoyed working with my co workers and enjoyed scheduling and loss prevention.

    Cons

    Be ready for long hours and a lot of time on your feet. Also I had to quit because RadioShack cut managers salaries.

    Advice to Management

    Please give the managers more support and restore the salary to a living wage.
