I really loved working for RadioShack and helping out customers find solutions for their problems. The only downside is we would constantly change what we had to focus on pretty much every month. They also constantly change how our warranties work which upsets the loyal customers. Its only good as a first job because you learn many different things.

The most enjoyable part of working at RadioShack was the customers. Overall that's what made it great. There's really no such thing as a job advancement. They don't hire within the company if a management position opens. It's like a 1 to a million chance.
SALES ASSOCIATE/ASSISSTANT MANAGER (Former Employee), Chicago, IL – September 13, 2014
Your checks depend on you. You can get a hourly check plus commision and bonuses. If you can sell and are not affraid to talk to strangers and build relationships with customers then this is the place to be. Although it's minimum wage you can make your checks look bigger by selling phones, batteries, and accessories. They work with you completely if – more... you have kids, school, and a second job. – less

Job was managing a store with all of the duties of management as well as customer service and still selling product on a weekly basis.
Senior Store Manager/District Team Lead (Former Employee), Fort Worth, TX – September 12, 2014
Pros: made good money for the work environment.
Cons: no home life, was on call 24/7.
A good starting job for entry level with the ability to move up into management. Must be willing to work 5-6 days per week and available all hours that store is open. Must be good at time management as well as multi-tasking to be successful. Must develop a Team that can execute programs and be able to react quickly to change in programs or environment. – more... The hardest part of job was not having a good balance of life due to staff reductions and the manager having to pick up the slack and extra hours. The enjoyable part was all of the loyal customers that you meet and get to know over the years. – less
Store Manager (Current Employee), Hagerstown, MD – September 9, 2014
I think that Radio Shack has lost focus on their customers by pushing corporate expectations on customers. I think that when an organization losses focus on what is most important--the customer--you have an organization that is in trouble.
