    I worked at RadioShack full-time

    Pros

    The work really is a no brainer if you have decent customer service skills and a mind to be able to determine peoples problems and create solutions with tech..

    Cons

    The company has many problems with adapting to a changing retail environment. Radio Shack used to be the "go to" for tech related solutions. With the availability of online sourcing much of this is fading and you pay a steep price for immediate gratification or need.

    Advice to Management

    Stop in fighting between departments. The failure of the "old guard" to embrace new directions and tendency to hold on to outdated methods may have ended it all for the company. Very sorry to see it. Radio Shack had been a constant through all of my life.

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

    Pros

    SMALL discounts on electronics. I liked my coworkers.

    Cons

    Corporate liked to put on a show by mentioning they were coming to inspect stores in the area. Then they wouldn't show... They do this to keep us on our toes.
    They also push you to "Sell, Sell, Sell" because you get commission, but commission is only about 3% for items you sell. So there is no real incentive, but this was back when I worked there in 2013. Maybe things have changed?

    Advice to Management

    Please create some REAL incentive.
