Sales Associate (Current Employee), Melbourne, FL – August 17, 2014
Pros: 50% off your cell phone bill!
Cons: standing on your feet.
I've worked at RadioShack since 2012, and every day is usually fun and exciting. I enjoy meeting new people and staying busy, so being a sales associate really gives me that opportunity. Usually I go into work and start my basic responsibilities. I begin helping customers and continue fixing product placement and sales signage. Every week I learn something – more... new about consumer electronics, from new merchandise to new technology. The managers of the district are all very well connected and communicate openly with all sales associates, so you end up knowing who everyone is fairly quickly. I love when a customer has a difficult question or a tricky conversion they are trying to accomplish ("I need my video camera to play the files from my ipod through my projector system at work"). It really tests your knowledge of electronics and encourages you to try new things. – less

Pros: interesting toys to play with.
Cons: lack of focus, schedule volatility.
I rather enjoyed the people I worked with directly and the manager was very skilled regarding the ins and outs of the company, but I quickly came to recognize that the company seemed to lack any strategic focus. The corporation was unsuccessfully trying to rebrand itself to resemble its competitors but only managed to alienate its core demographic. – more... I am unsure as to the company's future, but I wish them luck. – less
productive and excellent environment to escalate as a customer service expert.
