    I have been working at MarketStar full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay, flexible hours (if you get on with a good project), nice management and not like other call centers. They let you be an adult and do not micromanage. Decent bonus structure.

    Cons

    Hard to get hired on if you don't know someone or have the perfect previous experience. No raise option unless you move up in positions.

    Advice to Management

    Need to make sure your employees know you value them as more than just hitting numbers.

    Pros

    "People First" you will hear that all the time at MarketStar. They truly do what they say they will do for their people.

    Cons

    Too bad they don't have a Headquarters in the Northeast so the field teams in the NE can engage with upper management more often.

    Advice to Management

    A Northeast office would be ideal for field team members to have so they can see how great upper level management is and how much they are valued.

    I have been working at MarketStar full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lot's of room to move around and gain experience. You won't be in one place for too long.

    Cons

    Salary would be the biggest drawback, but again, you'll get lot's of experience you might not be able to get elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Culture is a big reason why people choose to stay on or leave a team.

    Pros

    This is my second team while working for Marketstar. LG Mobile and now VMware. Great stepping stone for your career path. Great bonuses!

    Cons

    Salary is low compared to other companies.

    Advice to Management

    While on LG, developers/management of developers is a joke. The product for LG/HTC/ sucks. Easy changes take months, poor project management. We were constantly disappointing the clients, and i believe this was the reason Marketstar lost the LG Mobile account.

    I worked at MarketStar part-time

    Pros

    Freedom and minimum tasks. You don't have a direct and constant supervision monitoring your work and pressuring you to push protection plan/ credit cards/ etc to achieve goal.

    Cons

    Depending on the program, the job can be extremely unstable.

    Advice to Management

    Managers should frequent the store or at least visit a few times a month to get to know the specialists.
