    Pros

    Base pay, comission system, flexible schedule, very understanding managers, room to grow after some months of being employed.

    Cons

    The down time. Can be hours before you help a customer. The training videos are boring but helpful.

    Advice to Management

    Comission on more products So we can be more motivated to sell at work.

    Pros

    Flexible time scheduling, they give me the visits I need to conduct weekly, I go when it's convenient for me. Paid mileage, cell phone, great pay overall. Nice bonuses too. MarketSource treats their employees well--most of the time.

    Cons

    A lot of miscommunication within the program, completely disorganized, and completely chaotic. With a new program, this can be expected. But I would have never expected this disorganization. Last minute expectation for "black out period". Were given 18 hours notice that we couldn't take off for 2.5 months. Upper management needs to get their act together.

    Advice to Management

    Great company, with great pay. Just completely disorganized that eventually should get fixed...but it's almost overwhelming. Please communicate with your employees, and give us notices to things like time off. Its hard to expect someone not to be able to take off from already planned approved vacations, and graduations.

    Pros

    Almost full time hours. You are in charge of your own store. You determine your success at this position. You have potential to make up to $1000 or more a week in bonuses, usually during the holidays. Clean environment and friendly people. You make a little more than min wage as a base pay.

    Cons

    Not quite full time hours. They hours are right smack in the middle of the day. You work every weekend every holiday no excuses. You never see a wage increase, you just have to sell more and more phones if you ever want to make more money. Not that many coworkers to cover your shifts, your pretty much screwed if you need a day replacement on the schedule. Not that many positions in upper management available for promotions.

    Advice to Management

    14-15 stores to oversee is a lot to keep track of, just don't get lazy. Do the best you can to support your team.

    Pros

    This company has a great work life balance. Great base pay, depending on which project you are selected to work for. The company has a great atmosphere, and cares about equality. Managers keep micromanagement to a minimum.

    Cons

    The management many times acquire jobs that they are not qualified to take on, and are very unsure if they are able to make the job work, but they pursue those opportunities anyway. They can be very slow at making sure your commission check arrives on time, but demands sales and more sales in the midst of a smoke and mirrors operation.
