        I have been working at RadioShack part-time for more than a year

        Pros

        If you like playing with electronics the discount was ok.

        Cons

        Their focus on selling smarts was the wrong strategy given the amount of competition. I mean you can buy a smartphone at your local pharmacy.

        Disapproves of CEO

        I worked at RadioShack part-time

        Pros

        If you worked in a busy enough store you could earn "some" money by selling enough phones.

        Cons

        Commission based, no incentive to sell anything but cell phones.

        Advice to Management

        Doesn't matter now, clearly their reliance on selling cell phones didn't work out for them.
