Main Street Hub
Main Street Hub is the voice for more local businesses than any other company, helping create thriving local economies. As Inc. Magazine's 73rd Fastest Growing Company in 2014, we help local businesses grow their reputation and their business through our innovative, "do-it-for-you" online marketing solution.
Our proprietary technology is the backbone of our “do-it-for-you” approach, and one of the key reasons we’re able to achieve results for our customers that outperform industry averages by 500%. Our application was built with one thing in mind — to help local businesses succeed online. Through technology, creativity, and service, we proactively manage their online conversations and grow their business at a price they can afford.
Our team and culture enables our rapid growth and creates a #HubLife for over 300 team members working in Austin, New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
Our “do-it-for-you” marketing platform integrates social media, web, mobile and email marketing to help merchants get more customers and keep them coming back. We do that by spreading word of mouth for our customers, extending their customer service, managing their online reputation, and leveraging Main Street Hub’s merchant network for their benefit.
The “do-it-for-you” approach
We understand that merchants don’t always have the time and resources to effectively market their businesses online. That’s why we combine innovative technology with personalized service to deliver amazing results for our customers. For the merchants that we have the privilege of working with, it’s like having their own team of marketing experts at a price they can afford. We are proud to work with more than 4,000 customers in all 50 states. Here are just a few.
We are passionate about helping merchants succeed, and we believe that our culture is the foundation that helps us do that. These are the values that shape our culture:
- Reverence for local business
We treat customers and prospective customers like the local heroes that they are.
We ensure that each of our actions is in the best interests of our team, our company, and our customers.
- Challenge ourselves
We commit ourselves to continuously improving our performance and pushing through our comfort barriers.
- Take ownership
We hold ourselves accountable for our choices and results.
- Elevate others
We lift up our customers and teammates, through positivity, confidence, and graciousness.
- Speak up
We know candor and constructive dissent are critical to our success.
- I am Main Street Hub
We each represent Main Street Hub through our decisions & actions.
“I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: "If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?" And whenever the answer has been "No" for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.”—Steve Jobs

I have been working at Main Street Hub full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
I love my career at Main Street Hub. I started really at entry level on the phones and got through all the promotions they offer sales consultants/marketing consultants pretty quickly. It was so nice to be able to get a promotion and a raise and increased commission when you prove yourself in sales and customer service. I was really impressed that really successful people were leaving their jobs and coming to Main Street Hub.
The Senior Vice President of Sales Mandy Cole came from Living Social. Mandy held senior leadership roles at Stella & Dot, LivingSocial, MyNewPlace.com, Wells Fargo Merchant Services and CitySearch. She is a graduate of The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and amazing to work with. This gave me a ton of confidence in the company and sticking with the company.
Mike Georgoff, our new VP Product previously played critical roles at Redbox, the movie rental company, and RetailMeNot, the digital coupon powerhouse, helping grow each from early stage to $1B+ public company. Mike earned his academic credentials at the University of Michigan, graduating summa cum laude from the College of Literature, Science, and Arts.Cons
There is of course hard work in any growing company and lots of changes but I have found with each and every change it just got better for me, our team and our customers. There is just no company who does what Main Street Hub does at their price point and although others may try they just don't have the range of product, people and the Do It For You service offered by us. The work life balance is not so great but they are working on it. They don't ask you to work harder or longer but to hit my goals I choose to and its so much fun to help people I easily over work. They do encourage you to work out and adjust your hours as needed. I have never been told that there is something in my life that I need to get done and they refuse a request. Super awesome about allowing you to have a life provided you leave LOL.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Keep doing what your doing. I love the work life balance, flex hours for seniors, Presidents Clubs, Annual Sales Conference and fantastic compensation. I would love a Pension Plan. So you know you have a salary the rest of your life. Long term disability needs to include a percentage of your commission so that there is not a huge gap in income if you ever get injured or disabled. Vacation Time needs to give a percentage of your sales since commission is so much of your pay you cant really take a vacation and keep your sales up. I just think the Leadership team rocks. CEO's are brilliant, compassionate and super down to earth guys. Love them.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- Application Details
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days – interviewed at Main Street Hub.Interview Details
I applied with a recruiter. The phone interview with the recruiter took about twenty minutes long. I then went into The Main Street Hub office where I interviewed with two upper management employees. The question asked were basic. The management team is very nice and they try to get a complete understanding of your experience. If you don't have at least 2-3 years of experience I wouldn't even bother applying. Some of the people were very rude as well as music is being played so loud that you can't hear yourself think. If i had to give any recommendations I would say only apply to this company as a last resort.Interview Questions
- The most difficult part about the interview is when they ask you to do sales pitch to them. They give you a piece of paper and expect you to memorize all of their details and pitch their products to upper management. If you hesitate or do one thing wrong they won't even give you a chance.
