"Radio Shack is a great company to work for if you want to get a good head start on Tech Sales.I've learned a lot when it comes to cell phone sales at which I would know right away what provider the customer wants and know what would fit them perfectly."

"I started working since January 2012 and I have loved the flexible hours it gives. The only downside is the pay and certain acts that need to be done (driving to sites and picking up merchandise, etc.)."

What do you like about working at RadioShack?

"I would say the only point of working at RadioShack I enjoy is the customer demographic. Being able to help people set phones/electronics up is the key point of this company. I admire how RadioShack strives for customer service. If only they'd direct some of that appreciation/effection towards their employees."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"If you're a high school student, and have absolutely zero responsibilities or bills, then this job is perfect!If you have an apartment to pay for, then you're going to need a secondary job or income method."

What don't you like about working at RadioShack?

"RadioShack is too focused on no product sales, i.e. replacement plans. Some of these plans seem to cost almost half of the price of the item they're buying ( $7.99 for one year of protection on $15 headphones). On top of that, if we don't sell a certain percentage of replacement plans we are penalized. The micromanagment is atrocious. I should not be reprimanded by more than one person for a 15-minute tardy. For this company to become a pleasant work place in my market, there needs to be some changes in management and the expectations of sales associates."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"I would suggest employee appreciation. To me it feels like RadioShack holds no appreciation towards its lower level employees. This baffles me, seeing that other than paperwork, we do most of the work to keep the store functioning. A qualified store manager should know this already. It seems, however, that none of them do."

What suggestions do you have for management?
