it's all about closing the deal
Don't get me wrong, I love Radio Shack, been shopping there since I was a kid, and I did a one year stint as an employee. I believe they might sell a few phones, but the salespeople just aren't trained to sell.
As direct competition to "the shack" though, I actually like the idea i feel like it is going to solidify T-mobile as a major competitor in the minds of more people, thus making my job easier!
I'll take the customer The Shack can't close!!!!
obviously the mall you work in has a bad manager running the radioshack. most radiosahck associates are trained to be sales beasts. live it up while you can, if they ever put a decent manager in there ...
Trying to hang in there
I love T-Mobile and I love Radio Shack
When they sell T-Mobile I will be their friends. I will be going there for every annoying question I have. I will also go their just to talk about how cool T-Mobile is and waste the time of the non busy employees. They see me on a regular basis.
My Prediction For The Next Five Years.
