Pros

You get to work for the three major wireless carriers. At&t Verizon Sprint. It's an easy job if you know how to sell and talk to people. Discounted wireless service.

Cons

High turnover rate. Sales associates make very low hourly rate. $8.25. Expect them to call you everyday to work because people call out. It is difficult to get promoted to become team lead

    Your program's success will depend on your manager's ability to work with and improve, not just appease, the client.

    I have been working at MarketSource full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Depending on the program, may be able to work with multiple retailers and locations. Lots of freedom.

    Cons

    Management often recycled between programs, even when failing. Operations is often well behind and inefficient. If consistently leading in sales, expect them ask you "how are you doing that??" and then completely ignore any wide-scale implementation of your successes. If I've proved it month after month and successfully mentored other districts into the same results, drop the "I've been doing it longer" line and pay attention.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create employee council within programs to help improve (not "management" level). Step up to the client when their direction is flawed or when they don't deliver on their end.

    Pros

    Work w/ 3 phone carriers. Great coworkers. Easy work.

    Cons

    Hourly pay is super low ($8.50) and you'll never hit meaningful commission based on store traffic and the existing numbers of the store. Terrible computer system. Too pushy about pushing insurance on customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advertise more in the Target flyers to increase store traffic for mobile. More traffic equals more sales. Best Buy is whooping your rear end day in and day out. Better pay... $8.50/hr is a joke.
