    Great Company - Very laid back.

    Recruiter (Current Employee)
    Akron, OH

    ProsCorporate is very laid back - dress code is flexible - jeans are perfectly fine unless we have corporate guests, then it's khaki's. Managers's can be amazing

    ConsActionlink is a rollercoaster - and you have to be prepared for that! Tons of work one month, then nothing for a while. No regularly schedule reviews, unlesur manager makes it a priority.Paid well for job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShare with your people how Dealing With Ambiguity is a required skill. Continue to share updates on projects (Go Todd London!) and just keep the information coming!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great part-time job for supplemental income

    LG Brand Advocate (Former Employee)
    Boston, MA

    ProsClear goals, good training, fair bonus structure, management communicated well

    Consalmost always weekend hours, not much flexibility with changing assigned work days, campaigns can be sporadic

    Advice to Senior Managementmore communication on availability of future campaigns

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    ActionLink offers a great work atmosphere for the self motivated individual.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe Regional Manager that worked for was great. He is always available and your biggest cheerleader. Very positive person.

    ConsThe reimbursements for travel are ridiculously low.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet organized.

    Good place to start in retail sale

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsFlexible schedule
    Awesome and helpful managers

    ConsNot enough working hour
    Cut paid
    This last one is not really a con but something to consider for new hire: everything need to self learn through videos and online trainings. Nobody gonna be around to teach you step by step

    Not too bad, a bit unstable currently

    Merchandiser (Former Employee)

    ProsGenerally flexible hours, everything is pretty easy to learn and manage. Everything is easily accessible from your smartphone or tablet, so you can fill out your information on the go so less printing! Training was pretty straight-forward. HR is quick to respond to any issues. Paid time for driving between stores. Nice rep help line for all issues, and nice merch kit!

    ConsLots of last minute calls and emails, 2-3 people calls are a HASSLE. Managers aren't always as accessible as they should be. Pay rate isn't as competitive as other merchandising companies. Lack of conference calls to explain new programs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo away with the 2-3 person calls.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Fun, but unproductive

    Merchandising Representative (Current Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsIts truly a fun job. Its a job in which one can gain much work experience and new skills.

    ConsThe pay is awful. If you are working with Action Link, expect poor pay and 10 hours a week.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEither higher pay or better work hours

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Warehouse associate

    Warehouse (Former Employee)
    Akron, OH

    ProsSmall environment everyone got along. Works around your school schedule if need be. Laid back environment management is good also

    ConsNo job security. I was laid off after 6 months and before I was let go a manager of 20 years was let go after a failed project in which both of us worked 12 plus hours a day to make sure we reached a deadline!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe company offers many different opportunities.
    Managers are very helpful and friendly.
    The job is fun if you are interested in sales and electronics.

    ConsOpportunities are mostly seasonal.
    The hours are not enough.

    Very awesome experience for part timers

    Sales Representative (Current Employee)
    Westminster, CA

    ProsOne of the best managers I've had, easily communicated with him, willing to go out of his way to help me grow.

    ConsSometimes way too short of an hours offered per weekend and there are days we just dont work for a month or two. I dont mind 12-15 hours a week but 8 hour per week is just too short in my opinion.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI understand that there are down times for the projects but I just personally think 8 hours a week is a bit low for a part time.
