    Pros

    I am at a loss currently.

    Cons

    It is 2015. Not offering direct deposit is simply archaic, and honestly- it feels like a control mechanism. One can not plan a holiday, or a appointment or heaven forbid, a sick day! around pay dates. It is simply ridiculous. Banks also penalize customers w/ fee's for not having direct deposit! If my a majority of my bills are automatically withdrawn ( Again, it IS 2015) should the salary that I work so diligently for not be automatically deposited? This is a problem that could be EASILY corrected- the fact that MSP flat out REFUSES - indicates this is in fact- a control mechanism. We are expected to give so much- but we can not be extended this courtesy. Shame on you!

    Advice to Management

    See above. Something that you deem insignificant is breeding hostility.

    Pros

    Pay was great, flexible hours and amazing people to work with. Management was by far the best management I've worked for

    Cons

    They leave you no room for mistakes. They give you one warning and after that you have to be perfect.

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate that one and done rule of firing people. Especially if that person is a great asset to the company

    Pros

    The schedule is very flexible. you can work one day one week and then 6 days the next week. The pay definitely makes up for the driving that you do and you basically hang out around bars and clubs for the night all over jersey. If you like going out this is a job for you.

    Cons

    You will definitely catch yourself at the gas station more often. you might have to drive far but the pay makes up for it.

    Pros

    Pay, employees are fun to work with. Management is very understanding when crises come up and they try to fight for you.

    Cons

    Corporate will punish you for telling the truth. For example, recently I was given a shift where 3 out of 5 bars were shut down or no longer wanted us in their establishment for 2015. I got no reply from upper management to add a bar, so we had to make do. In the last hour we drove to repeat bars, where no one else that was a new tobacco consumer had show up. I explained it all on my paperwork and was told a few days later that I would not be paid for that last hour. So even though I spent that hour looking for people to qualify, I don't get paid. I guess that tells me they don't value their employees or their marketing consumers.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your spokesmodels better, we are the face that it is representing the brand.

    Pros

    The nightlife is exciting you basically get paid to bar hop. You never have to worry about being audited, the managers in Detroit just say their coming out.

    Cons

    Ridiculous amounts of driving, your 4 hour shifts turn into 6 hour shifts because of the long commutes. On top that, 3 days out of the week you have to check in at the office, and you get paid minimum wage for that... I only recommend this job if you are desperate.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees their the ones working out in the field and know the best places and what to do. Management doesn't care.
