I wrote a nice long rant about Radio Shack and my browser closed before I submitted it, so I'll just give you the short version. I work for Target Mobile, those people you see in some Target electronics sections with the black shirt. They are owned and operated by Radio Shack. The DM is a passive aggressive d***head. I used to get commission for every phone I sold, but since RS is going broke, they decided back in April to make it where you have to sell a crap load of phones a week or you don't get a dime for any phone you sell. Sold 8 phones this week but your hours call for 9? No commission. Try again next week. Needless to say, I've only gotten two commission checks since last April and stopped trying a long time ago. If someone has a question about a phone, I will be happy to answer them. But I don't try to "sell" anymore.
The reasons I haven't quit yet: The people at Target are really cool and I've made some good friends there. The 10% Target discount, which is nice. I get to take my breaks or lunches whenever I want without asking. I don't have to talk to management except once in a while on the phone or email.
But the looming threat that Radio Shack is about to go bankrupt or that they are going to slash my hours to the bone have made me start looking elsewhere. Honestly though, if that d***head district manager walked in and told me I was fired, I will gladly tell him to shove the job up his ass.
