Productive Work environment
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Saraland, ALApril 17, 2014
Pros: meeting new people
Cons: not enough hours.
We don't have many customers come in, but when we do it's nice because we work as a team. Co-workers are pretty cool for the most part. I learned new things about technology, I learned that my communication skills could be better. The hardest part of my job is dealing with angry customers. The most enjoyable part of my job ist meeting new people.

Radio Shack is a great company. still catering to the parts guy all the way to the tech geek, Wireless phones, tablets, & laptops are quickly taking over. Customer centered focus.

Not bad but dying slowly
Store Manager (Former Employee), San Francisco, CAApril 16, 2014
Overall not a bad place. Easy to excel in but with sales falling every year but sales goals staying at a constant high, it can be tedious

Sales Associate (Former Employee), Columbus, OHApril 15, 2014
Pros: hours
Cons: benefits earning potential
The typical day involves assisting customers with their electronic needs also maintaining the stores sales appeal by making sure tags are properly placed and correct sales tags are displayed and correct every once in a while you might have to rearrange the stores products to make room new products or products being taken off the shelves. Setting up – more... cell service assisting with cell issues. If you are looking for a job also with flexible hours then Radioshack is good for you because you can work with your manager with a schedule that suits your needs especially if you are a college student or single parent. Benefits could def use some improvement. Co Workers are usually friendly could get some bad apples due to it being a commission driven job. This company love promoting from within so within a matter of months one can go from sales associate to a store manager – less

Needs some Work
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Columbia, SCApril 14, 2014
Pros: reduced bills, discounts, friendly environment
Cons: no outside life, always on call.
RadioShack is truly a haven for those interested and invested in retail for consumer electronics. While the life to job ratio may vary for some, this career leaves a lot to be desired in free time. Customers are the most enjoyable part of the job, as well as the perks that often pop up, ie. reduced cellphone bills, discounts on vital merchandise, etc, – more... however the style of management might need to be revamped. – less

No longer worth it.
store manager (Current Employee), Orlando, FLApril 13, 2014
This job started off as a good paying job, the experince was great in the beginning but upper managment is not to interested in pleasing their employees, every year or 6 months there are new rules and silly policies. They seriously set up their staff for failure, they give you high goals that you will bearly reach by the end of month.A lot of micro – more... managing is done in this company. If you do not feel comfortable asking customer for their private information. This is not a job for you. You will get a write up if you do not call customers and advice them that they might be eligible for an upgrade. Learning everything that you have to learn and dealing with the everyday task is not worth 7.93. You will make more money at a fast food place then at radioshack. – less

Full-Time Key Holder / Person In Charge (Current Employee), Jacksonville, NCApril 9, 2014
Pros: vacation, paid birthday, personal time, flexible schedule
Cons: expensive healthcare, little room for advancement
A typical day at work would include cleaning and doing floor plans to organize the store. I would receive shipments and deliveries and ship out shipments and deliveries. Customer service is handled on the daily and some days you might have to act like a technician to solve customer service issues.

Upbeat and a very nice atmosphere.
Store Manager (Former Employee), Kewanee, ILApril 8, 2014
Pros: challenging my coworkers to receive incentives for top sales for the month.
Cons: long hours when i was manager.
I worked at Radio Shack for four years total. I was assistant manager for two years, and manager for 2 years. I enjoyed working there.
A typical day for me was a conference call in the morning from last night sales, set the schedule for next week, and sort daily promos for incoming staff. My co-workers were all very competitive and provided a very nice – more... environment. The most enjoyable thing about my job was challenging my co-workers to see who could sell the most sell phones per month. – less

Sales Associate (Former Employee), Jackson, MSApril 8, 2014
Radio Shack was always an adventure. You never knew what you would be faced with, because you dealt with different people and different attitudes on a daily basis. But, overall, I enjoyed this job because I love meeting and serving people, trying to make their day less stressful. I learned here that no matter how horrible another person say their day – more... is, no matter how bad a person attitude is, always smile and speak nice things to them, because you never know who life you might touch. Management was good. I loved my co-workers. We always encouraged one another and try our best to make sure what ever the day may bring, we wasn't going to allow it to effect us. Their wasn't anything hard about this job. The most enjoyable part about this job, one again, is serving the people. I always wanted to make sure my customer was happy at all times. – less

Pros: commission
Cons: unattainable quotas, low pay, no vacation or sick time
It had a huge range of good from bad, i wouldnt reccommend working here unless youre completely out of options. The pay was not that great for all they have you do. The benefits were not the greatest as well either.

Interesting workplace
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Centerville, OHApril 6, 2014
Pros: lots of short little breaks, freedom to work on my own and at my own pace
Cons: too many policy changes
At my location, we were a little bit slower than a mall store. It left me plenty of time to get planograms and floor changes done, along with making sure the store was clean and organized. I learned how to make a schedule and balance employees work load. My immediate supervisor was a blast to work with. However, upper management was constantly changing – more... policies and made the job difficult to handle. I think my most enjoyable part of the job was my co workers and being able to work with people on a daily basis. I loved the feeling that I was able to help my customers with their problems. – less
