    Pros

    The pay is adequate, the atmosphere is laid back, and the commission scale really fair to be sure that even on slow weeks you make extra money.

    Cons

    Commission checks only come once a month, the district managers are nearly impossible to get a hold of, you are not in charge of hiring your own employees, and you are never, ever allowed weekends off. I asked for a Sunday off to take my daughter to the zoo, a month in advance, and was denied the day before our trip. It left me holding a grudge against the company for a really long time, and made me feel like the company didn't care about me or my family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care more about your employees home lives. I love my job and wouldn't be searching for another if Marketsource wanted to let me spend some time with my family.

    Love working at MarketSource. The leadership is phenomenal; the work-life balance cannot be beat and the culture is bar none.

    Good experience overall. Very flexible district managers.

    I worked at MarketSource

    Pros

    It was a very easy interview. If you have knowledge in mobile sales you will definitely get the job. It was also nice not having to report to anyone, just do your job, sell phones, get in and get out.

    Cons

    Daily phone conferences. Took time away from making $.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would consider having meeting minutes sent out throughout the week , recapping on what was said in maybe a Monday phone meeting instead of reiterating the same thing every day of the week

  7.

    Pros

    They do a great job giving you the tools to succeed and supporting you throughout each day. Anytime you make a suggestion they are wiling to consider is and see if it will better the program.

    Cons

    Although they are always listening there still is a disconnect with the corporate office and the field team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to make the field team be more feel more apart of the company whether it be bringing them to corporate of executives visiting them.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, great work environments, good down to earth people that are there to assist when necessary. Not bad pay, could be better always.

    Cons

    Sometimes, hours could be better or there could be more on a regular basis. Sometimes, gas reimbursement can be an issue, depending. Can sometimes get boring during retreat task, or assignments. Not much different from more typical work places.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great management, some are still better learning their roles, however are actually very down to earth group of i visuals there to assist their team.

    I have been working at MarketSource part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    They teach you responsibility, independence, they provide for a good work-life balance and provide time off if you need it. Awesome bosses that give their upmost respect and handle everything in a stress-free manner. Even given your quota to reach, you feel all around rewarded for doing well and making the sales matter so you feel more like, "How well can I actually do this month?" rather than, "Am I doing the minimum required?"

    Cons

    Could use more hours every now and then, but with the flexibility and respect that you're given this issue is somewhat nullified.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More team building exercises and meetings are always a great way to increase territory morale. I've enjoyed each one I've been a part of, so more would definitely be a bonus!
