Good start-out, that's about it

Marketing Research Assistant (Former Employee)
Creve Coeur, MO

I worked at Market Probe full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat introduction to learning how to run individually assigned research projects with direct supervision. Excellent hands-on problem solving and you get really good at PPT.

ConsManagement in shambles. Zero company direction. 30-40% turnover, annually. Excessive gap from entry-level/associate position to any sort of management position. Practically minimum wage for a college graduate is grossly underpaying their employees.

Frightful

Interviewer (Former Employee)
London, England (UK)

I worked at Market Probe part-time for less than a year

ProsEase of application and you could book your shifts online. You were never pressurised into taking more shifts than you wanted. They had weekend and evening shifts so you could fit it around other things.

ConsThey often cancelled your shifts at the last minute and you had to take your bag with you wherever you went. The managers even told you to do that. They often made mistakes with your monthly salary and they were very awkward when you pointed out the mistakes. They were very reluctant to issue you with a P45 or P60.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more approachable

Overall it was a decent experience for my a entry level position

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Market Probe

ProsThe work was easy and as long as you make a lot of calls you should be able to make your quota for your shift.

ConsThe only downside is the work environment and management. The work environment is depressing because it's a call centre and a lot of people seemed to hate their job. Some of the management individuals were polite to customers over the phone but were very mean to employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
