    Flexible work opportunities. Great experience managing your own time and routes. Developing the ability to build rapport with managers and associates all over your region requires people skills and helps build confidence.

    Inconsistent work flow which comes mainly from the seasonal nature of electronics merchandising.

    Competitive pay.

    Terrible communication from higher ups.
    Had to pay out of pocket for work shirt since one wasn't provided in a timely manner - waiting for compensation.

    I worked at ActionLink part-time

    Pros

    Great exposure to industry
    Latest Information
    Awesome sales experience
    Awesome support from management

    Cons

    Distributed team, so it's only you at your store location
    Hours are not very flexible
    Sometimes difficult to complete work diligently within the hours allocated so may have to go over

    Advice to Management

    Double down on the great people you meet and be more rewarding for success. Bonuses would be nice, especially in a job that is based on sales but is only paid hourly.

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

    Pros

    Pay for commute if it is long, different products for different projects so it wasn't always stale, flexible schedule was also nice.

    Cons

    Most of the stuff is online so if something is vague you would have to call someone, commutes change if you don't have a steady project and if a store is incredibly slow you feel useless.

    Advice to Management

    It's very call oriented simple how to video for people who are installing end caps would be nice too.
