    Listen to those out with the public. Suggestions and inquiries go up the chain of command, resolutions never come back down.

    Former Employee - Sales Manager in Wesley Chapel, NC

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

    Pros

    Work within target and not have to deal with all the ridiculous busy tasks

    Cons

    The health benefits were terrible and I pay almost half at my current job. You also had no say in your schedule. I would say the number one problem would be that they don't listen to their employees and put day to day operation of the kiosk in the hands of the district manager who are never available.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put the schedule back in the hands of the managers and leave day to day operation to them and you could probably get rid of the district managers altogether as it seems right now that you are just giving them busy work.

    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
