Does RadioShack offer employee discounts?

Pros

HAHA the laughable 10% discount for employees on cheap products.

Cons

Everything from hiring outside upper management who has no idea what goes on in store. Losing core customers to push cell phone and cheaply made overpriced electronics. Stopping or limiting bread and butter items adapters and cords to make space cheap electronics. Hiring incompetent rude employees who had no technical knowledge. Employees who would blow off helping customers, that were not tied to a cell phones, because thats the only way to make real commission money, while getting paid $8/hr. T he 6 things your supposed to ask and up sell, every single transaction including phone number. Upper management gets mad when you cant sell 18 basic alkline batteries for 15.99, everything is put into metrics for you to get yelled at every week. I hate radioshack im glad the business has gone under, typical failed clueless executives, very similar to the exit blockbuster.

Advice to Management

Promote hard working managers who have been with the company for years. Pushing cellphones as the only focus is stupid, no one thinks to come to RS for that. Incompetent employess. Harrassing of customers during the check out process. Extreme amount of tracked metrics with what had impossible goals to meet, due to poor outside district and regional hires with no clue of processes due to lack of training. Not surprised this company went under.
