    I have been working at Market America full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Market America has much to offer people at an entry level as well as those who are seasoned professionals. The benefits are generous and depending on the position, compensation ranges from fair to good. The environment is casual, but at times can be very charged and energetic. Bottom line, I've been here more than 5 years and I am satisfied.

    Cons

    As I mentioned, Market America can at times be very charged and energetic - for the faint at heart, or thin skinned; this can be a challenge. The bottom line is that this company is in business to make money, not to make you, or me absolutely love our positions and love working here - that part is up to us. You make of it what you want. At MA, we sometimes fly by the seat of our pants and that basically falls under the philosophy of - GET THE JOB DONE and above all else, make our distributors happy - because they are the reason we are here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hang on to the good directors and managers you currently have working for you; you need to build a more solid core. Need much improvement in the area of retention; consider hiring a retention recruiter.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Market America.

    Interview Details

    Phone screen with HR, phone screen with manager, in person with manager, job offer by phone from HR. The people in the office that I met during/after the interview didn't say anything negative about the company, but they gave hints about the difficult work environment. Everyone looked depressed, worn down, and not at all happy to be there. I quickly found out why.

    Interview Questions
    • They didn't really ask many questions, just told me about the job and that it would be a "challenging" environment with a "high noise level." They weren't joking.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They gave me the $$ I requested, but beware, when you start they try to give you just ONE week of PTO, including sick, vacation, and personal days. That's five days for sick, vacation, AND personal days for an entire year.
