When I was a kid, they called it Radio Shack. But now, it's called The Source by Circuit City. Maybe they changed it just to confuse me but I would assume they had other reasons to do it.
Anyways, if you want to work there, here are 3 ways to get hooked up.
1. Go to their Web site to find job opportunities at the company. They include a Copywriter job in Barrie, ON, which sounds like an interesting job. In Barrie, they're also looking for some other staff including an Intermediate Accountant and a Shipping Supervisor.
If you're looking for a job as a Sales Associate, they've got positions listed throughout the country, from Vancouver, White Rock and Vernon, BC (there are lots of other cities in BC, just not enough space to list them all) to Charlottetown, PEI, Moncton, NB and Amherst, NS on the East Coast.
I mentioned 3 ways. The second way, if you're looking for a retail job as a sales associate is to check out the store where you want to work. They'll often post a note by the entrance mentioning they're looking for staff.
The third way is to get dressed nicely (make an effort, will ya?) and print up a nice resume. Walk (or drive or take the bus... - I don't really care how you get there - the result will be the same, as long as you can get to the store)... and ask to speak to the manager. The manager is usually working in the store, especially during the week. Ask them if they're hiring and if they're not, ask if you can leave your resume.
Just rememeber when speaking with them, not to call it Radio Shack. It's called The Source by Circuit City. Maybe one of these days, I'll remember that too.
