    I worked at ActionLink part-time

    Pros

    Good pay. Freedom of not having management with you at all times , but there to check up on you weekly. Easily call or text for help.

    Cons

    You’re usually working in a store trying to sell a specific brand, they’re other sales representative for specific brands that are employees of the store so there’s a fine line with respecting the store you’re working with and their employees and attaining customers that would have been theirs.

    I worked at ActionLink part-time

    Pros

    * Good pay (based on program)
    * Great training
    * Worked independently, very steady goals

    Cons

    So if there are ever any technical issues, it can be hard to get them fixed. I had my demo break and spent a great deal of time working with tech support. They were *really* helpful when it came to getting it fixed though - I think my e-mails might have gone through about 20 different people lol. Their hearts are definitely in the right place, particularly up top.

    Advice to Management

    As said before, hire people who are passionate and or knowledgeable about technology first and foremost. That kind of passion is what drives excellent management (i.e. motivation, positivity, etc.) and a college degree *or* experience can guarantee organization. I could have done an excellent job as a DM for the MVR project and we went through like... 3 managers in a very short period of time. Probably should have raised my hand a little louder! Still happy to sign on if you all need anyone :)

    I worked at ActionLink part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Easy pay for the job I was doing. Instructions were easy to follow.

    Cons

    You are pretty much never going to meet with any of your managers so be prepared for that.


  10. "Electronics Merchandiser"

    StarStarStarStarStar

    I worked at ActionLink part-time

    Pros

    Flexibility, work on your own, schedule your own work within parameters.

    Cons

    Low pay, lots of merchandising assignments vs. the technical that are more interesting. The instructions for each job provided by the company are often poorly written, disorganized and confusing.

    Advice to Management

    Clearer, more succinct instructions. Too much information in multiple locations an documents makes a simple job confusing.
