Also, cannot afford full-time (40 Hour) pay, so all workers, save managers, must work less than 30 hours per work week. Therefore, though a decent employee can make $10+ an hour, said employee still will average only $400 every two-week period, if employee is lucky as fuck.
"Indeed. He is very fucked by Stan Stan He's Our Man If He Can't Do It Some Other Braindead Monkey-Fuck Can."
"Fuck. I should go back to laying concrete. At least there I did 40 hours a week. You know, it would be nice if RadioShack could give me 40 hours a week so I wouldn't have to bum money off my girlfriend."
Comment submitted with request to Delete: "I am an employee of Radio Shack and while the comment is somewhat funny, I am not, as quoted "as dumb as a box of hammers." Nor are my fellow employees. (Well, most of them)"
Person 2: no
A once popular electronics retail store. Now its better know as BestShack. In late 2005 when the CEO of radioshack, Dave Edmonson was fired, the entire company started going downhill. Since then, the company has only pushed wireless and since gave up on what Radioshack has stood for. The company does not understand people do not go to Radioshack to buy flat screen tv's, they go there for small parts. The work enviroment is horid. From brainwashing employees' to over work/underpaid work weeks, it is simply a horrible place to work. Vaction isn't really vaction considering you can not take it during the 4th quarter (October, November, Decemeber) If you try to take more than 1 week of vaction in a row, it is highly frownd upon in the company. Management can be summed up in one word, shitheads. To become anything higher than a manager you have to be brainwashed and think that if you offer a customer a cell phone, they WILL buy it. Radioshack is estimated to go out of bussiness by December of 2009.
Employee: Have you seen our selection of flat panel TV's
Customer: Why would I go to radioshack to buy a TV, when CircuitCity and Bestbuy have them for cheaper and they are better?
Employee: They have true 720i resolution
Customer: 1080p is becoming a standard, and 1080 is high-def, 720 is enhanced, why do you advertise High-def if you dont have any high-def tv's?
Employee: You can pay with it on your Radioshack creditcard, only $20 a month.
Customer: Im going to bestbuy, there cheaper.
Employee: Who's your current cellular provider?
The typical sales associates are rather arrogant, all they want to do is upsell you shit that you don't need. If they are beneath the age of 22, they want to leave for a new job as soon as possible.
Overall, try and stay away from Radioshack. Underhanded practices and selling you short of what you need is their aim in life.
Customer: No, just this battery
Manager: Are you sure? It's an awesome price
Customer: It's 300 dollars, and I have a better one
Manager: Well I bet this can do more, why don't I give you a show of what it can do?
Customer: No, just the battery.
Manager: Want to open a Radioshack card?
Customer: Just the battery, stop trying to sell me crap.
Manager: OK, but you get 10% of your first purchase.
Customer: This battery is 4.99. That would be 49 cents. No.
Manager: OK, 5.24 please. Your name?
Customer: None of your business.
Manager: We need it to do transactions
Customer: That's it, I'm out.
