    Pros

    work life schedule if your not in management is okay.

    Cons

    pay sucks, they sell you on having great benefits, however they are expensive and a super high deducible. You will never get promoted although they will keep promising it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get better senior managers that arent selfish.

    Pros

    This company is a nice introduction to corporate america. They will instill the work ethic and qualities that are needed in the corporate world.

    Cons

    It is a base salary + commission pay structure which could be good if you actually had more control over your own pay. Their is a ton of fall out before clients actually start which means that you as an employee, will not get paid for that candidate.

    Former Employee - Account Sales Representative in Newport News, VA

    I worked at MarketSource part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The pay was good for a part time position. Got to demonstrate some really good technology. When technology is issued to you, you can use it for work and "play" - I took some really great photos using a camera that was issued to me in addition to a photo printer. I liked that the company issued ink and photo paper for use in the stores as well.

    Cons

    Hard to get time off because we worked every weekend and some DM's did not like to give it. Had to have a really good reason, and then still got a hassle. Since it was a permanent part-time position, time was limited to 10 hours a week unless there was a special situation (Back to School, Black Friday, Dec 24th, etc). Never any full time opportunities. No opportunity to grow professionally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Utilize the talents of the personnel. Allow for opportunity to participate in special events. Consider these individuals for promotion opportunities. Develop your talents from the inside and you will not lose them to other organizations
