im not jealous of anything. your son could make way more money working for the right indirect dealer. it sucks they are losing their jobs, but the time has come. they dont go through any training the retail reps go through.

moving into target will be a failure, just give it time. radio shack doesnt understand the wireless industry.

the only reason you say radioshack has 'kept up' is because the carriers bend over backwards to give them free phones to sell because they know 99% of the reps that work for RS cant sell themselves out of a wet paper bag. all things being equal, price of equipment, RS and Best buy and Wall Mart and Target would never sell another phone.

your son sounds like he does a great job. i saw what was happening and moved on to manager corporate stores, and other indirect company stores. i didnt want to be stuck making peanuts in the Sam's i was in. there is no way on the face of this planet that the average pay for a sales rep in a sams is 15-35/hour. maybe at your kids store they do, but the entire nation its much less.

radioshack is a terrible company, and gives the carriers a bad name. they dont activate the phones or set up the correct expectations for the customer. they send their customers to my stores to explain their plans etc.
