RadioShack Corporation commonly referred to as RadioShack is a consumer goods distribution company that operates through independent retail chains, dealer stores, and an e-commerce website. The company currently has its headquarters present in Fort Worth, Texas, operating over 500 stores across the USA. RadioShack has a prominent history, having operated stores across the USA, parts of Asia, North Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean. At its peak, the company was a household name for all consumer products, available to the general public at effective costs. RadioShack was established by brothers Theodore and Milton Deutschmann, offering parts and repair services to radio equipment. Its advent into the electronic goods industry saw remarkable growth within the corporation, all through the 1980’s and 1990’s. The company later had a slow recession, with numerous parent organization changeovers, which led to its slow decline. Some employment opportunities are present as consultant, sales, store, and assistant managers.

I loved working at Radio Shack. I loved my customers. I was in management for 14 years. I trained my employees to have great customer service. I was a multi tasks person. Radio Shack was great with recognition and support. It was hard to run a store. But I had a system. It wasn't a bed of roses. But I made the best of it. All an all I really enjoyed my time at radio shack.

Sr. Management was disconnected from the customer base. They were not technical or hobby minded. They did not understand marketing. If you want people to visit your stores, maybe you should put the store - towns, addresses and phone #s on the back of the flyers.

Pros and Cons
Customer relations retail experience.
Low pay, long hours.

You have to be good at sales to get full benefits. If you keep a good personality and know your plans well enough to make an impression on the customer, you will most likely make a sale, which means more cash in terms of a bonus! 🤩

All employees earn 1% of what they sell, and management earns 1% of store sales. This is based on a formula set by corporate, and I guess this is pretty fair.
