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

    Pros

    I set my own schedule and enjoy working with and training retail associates. I am a self starter and enjoy not having a supervisor breathing down my neck. Pay is OK for this type of work but incentives would ad to my enthusiasm. New programs are always being added. I've been with MS over a year.

    Cons

    There is no feedback from management and that's not professional. I would expect more from a marketing company. Incentives would make me feel better about the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is no feedback about job performance or outcomes for the client. It gives the impression that management does not consider that important. I bet their clients do.

    I worked at MarketSource part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Everyday is different and new. I was trusted and as a result worked very hard to tackle obstacles that were not overtaken before.

    Cons

    Lots of travel with little or no compensation. I would bend over backwards to barely break even or at a loss. Very disappointed, otherwise I would still be with the company. Also the management is a joke and I had four bosses in 2 years and the I had one raise in that time for 25 cents which did not even cover inflation.

    I worked at MarketSource part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Simple Sale Job, Limited responsibilities. Schedule flexibility. Better than most retail hours. Freedom to work how you want, No direct supervisor, Great for short term employment. Use them to make few extra bucks or get back on your feet and leave.

    Cons

    Low Pay, Low Hours, No commission if your part time. DM's put unnecessary pressure on you, yet don't know what their doing. Asked to travel w/o mileage reimbursement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More Hours and pay. Change commission structure

    Pros

    Co-workers, managers, talking to guests, easy job and good pay. Manager not looking over your shoulder every minute of the day. That takes away some pressure.

    Cons

    Nearly non-existent training, I don't blame district manager, but my co-worker who was supposed to train me. Had to learn how to do everything without actually seeing a demonstration. So that led to bad habits i'm trying to get out of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Excellent, love my boss.

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

    Pros

    The job was easy and it was pretty straightforward.

    Cons

    If you want to make a livable wage.. Not the job for you. I was getting 12 hours a week from my location and I lived about 30 minutes away. Used half a quarter every time. It wasn't worth it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your employee's happy.. And they'll keep you happy. I'm the longest standing sales associate in my city and after one year.. I can see why so many leave so quickly.
