    I worked at TradeSource full-time

    Pros

    Get treated like a king during corporate training before reality sets in.

    Cons

    The pay is terrible if you're on salary. $30,000 to go balls to the wall from 8 to 5? Please. The business model is also not great considering how stiff their competition in the industry is. Their method for drumming up business is insane. They want their account managers to skulk around construction sites and try to get an audience with the site manager. 9 times out of 10, the guys on these sites already know where their labor is coming from. The guy I worked with "followed up" with business owners so much that it was tantamount to stalking. You can't call someone and ask for their business or "check in" with someone who barely remembers your name like you're old pals once a week every week until one of you dies.

    Then, there's the ads. This place uses craigslist and ONLY craigslist to find construction workers. Encouraging, right? I was asked to post upwards of 25 craigslist ads per week advertising for jobs that didn't even exist. That's right. They wanted to build a "bench" of skilled labor to be on call just in case we needed them. Business does not work like that. You're going to make a lot of people angry bringing them in and dragging them through an hour and a half interview process, drug testing them, everifying them, for a job that doesn't even exist. When you post 25 ads a week on craigslist, people remember you, and you seem like a scam. Don't try to address that with management, or any other issue for that matter, or you'll get treated like a guy who's trying to slack off.

    If you're not prepared to stalk people at construction sites, hire people for nonexistent jobs, and work long hours for marginal pay- look elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer actual advice when doing your little visits to the local branches and stop bloviating and forcing your one size fits all management approach down everyone's throats like you're infallible gods.
