RadioShack Job Summary
Sales Associate/Cashier (Former Employee), Decorah, IAApril 22, 2015
Pros: Free lunches on weekends, break times, and reduced store prices
Cons: Lazy coworkers, angry customers, and inappropriate jokes
A typical day at RadioShack involved showing up to work 15 minutes early and then deciding whether to begin dusting the shelves or immediately helping customers. Since I worked in a rather small town (10,000 people) the business would come in waves and would require you to drop whatever you were doing to assist the customer.
The management was friendly but was strict if you were not completing your tasks. The coworkers were friendly as well. One of the hardest things during my time at RadioShack was dealing with angry customers over their phone service. This required calling a corporate office, which in turn, would take a long amount of time because of the strenuous hold times. Although that was the most difficult part, the most enjoyable part was solving any customers problem and receiving their thanks.

hated working there
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Torrance, CAApril 21, 2015
Pros: store discounts
Cons: you can never sell enough batteries
day : open up vacuum, clean windows, front merchandise, then assist customers, after every customer, the managers would sneak up on you and say "why did u fail to sell batteries" even though u give every customer the song and dance.

boss didn't try to make me one of the team,

for some reason, only wanted me wear jeans, not slacks

Good employer except for that bankruptcy
Sr. Project Manager (Current Employee), Fort Worth, TXApril 21, 2015
Pros: Great company culture, good work-life balance, great co-workers and management
Cons: company is bankrupt
RadioShack had a wonderful culture, and a good work-life balance. Compensation was pretty good, but less generous in the later years, due to financial difficulties of the company. Resource management improved over the years, so that we had very good managers at the end. The interesting work, and wonderful co-workers were the most enjoyable part of the job. The hardest part of the job was to see RadioShack dissolve in bankruptcy.

Laid back, fun workplace
Supervisor (Former Employee), Belgrade, MTApril 16, 2015
During my six years in this small town store, I didn't have to deal with very many typical angry customers. Most people were very nice and appreciated my assistance. As such, a typical day was fairly amicable, consisting of assisting customers, chatting with co-workers, and enjoying whatever was on the television display.
Management was good. As a small store, there was only about five employees, making it easier to manage.
The worst part of this job, as with any customer service, was those times that a customer became flippant or angry. I simply explained the situation to those customers, often apologetically, and hoped they would become rational and understand.
