Employees always unsure of tomorrow....

I hope that the new owners can change things but for the last year plus they have lost lots of good talent to the stability issues.

It was amazing up until they field for bankruptcy
Technician (Former Employee), Brooklyn, NYAugust 29, 2015
Pros: Great work envirmoent, fun atmosphere, Opputunity to learn
Cons: Towards the end workplace envirment became unbearable
The workplace was fun ad fast and I loved the people I worked with. Unfortunately due to business decisions that were so bad they don't make sense even on a basic fundamental level, the company filed for bankruptcy. During the bankruptcy process the company did not treat employees properly; Poor workplace conditions and impossible goals were pushed to motivate employees to quit so as to avoid paying unemployment.

Branch Manager/Team Leader (Former Employee), multiple locationsAugust 29, 2015
After 18+ yrs and they couldn't find me a lateral moved position, and they NEVER said Thank you. It was hand the keys to the next store over. This wasn't just me but to everyone that got let go in the transition. Also any due time like vacation or sick leave disappeared and severance pay disappeared. But they paid it to management after I was let go (which I find interesting).

Fun place to work
Key Holder/Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Brooklyn, NYAugust 28, 2015
Pros: There was excellent commision percentages when I started in 2013, Fun Uniform and best of all were able to play with the latest gagets

Its an interesting place to work, meeting new people all the time. As you become a part of the work place and team you also evolve into apart of the neighborhood family.

Wireless Specialist (Former Employee), Pittsburgh, PAAugust 26, 2015
RadioShack is a good started job although since then have gone bankrupt and bought outta business. I would say work at best buy instead because you'll get more customers and deal with cooler tech.

Key Holder (Former Employee), Milpitas, CAAugust 24, 2015
RadioShack was a local place to get your needs. At this store I was trained to give product knowledge to customers about products that we had in our store. Open and close the store was another task on the list. Able to handle activation with phones to new and old customers. The hardest part about this job was that there wasn't too much coverage on the floor so therefore I had to handle each and every customer on the floor by myself. The most enjoyable part about this job was connecting with the customers and hearing their stories.

Consultant Associate/Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Norfolk, VAAugust 23, 2015
Pros: the teams, benefits

started at sales rep and within a 2 months took on a role as a manager. a typical day consist of opening store and prepare for the day. I learned how to do payroll, do schedule for who was working and complete daily reports. the hardest part of the job was working 54hrs per week. the most enjoyable was the bond I had with the employees.

A company that made many changes.
Wireless Consultant (Former Employee), Chicago, ILAugust 23, 2015
Pros: lots to learn
Cons: unrealistic quota expectations
A typical day at radio shack consisted of studying new technology. Every week there was a new phone or gps or tv etc coming out to learn about to better your sales. I spent everyday reading about cell phones and how electronics worked to the point where I now can fix broken electronics and tell you exactly how cell phones work per service provider.

management was pushed to do more with less. to sell more for less compensation. they cut their numbers every year even though the company claimed to make a profit. the radio shack i worked for is not the same company it is now.
