Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at MarketSource full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The use of technology is the best part of the job.
For example, the ability to clock in and out on your phone. Also, The ability to get company information on multiple devices. Target has some of the best clientele. Also, the company pays once a week.

Cons

Marketsource does not pay sick time or holiday pay. The activation system is problematic and the associates that are supposed to troubleshoot it lack common sense. Vacation time does not begin until eighteen months. Also, Target has you ring up all of their guests, but provide no employee discount. As a result, I bought my phone at Walmart because they don't charge taxes on the full retail value of $699.99.

Advice to Management

More power should be given to the managers at the store and they should report to the Target team leaders. Many of the district managers are carry overs from Radio Shack. They have never worked at the kiosk. There was a reason Target did not renew the contract. Also, the trainers from Marketsource are horrible.

    Pros

    If you work in a busy market, pay potential is good

    Cons

    No support, no real training, no useful ongoing education, policies that seem punitive and needless. No real respect for employees as human beings with reputations, personal relationships or families. "Manager" positions require no actual management of anything, biggest responsibility seems to be to continually apologize for the company's shortcomings. No adjustments of expectations based on the store where you work.

    Advice to Management

    Consider the actual environment in which your employees must work. Requiring managers to work every weekend without exception with no paid time off and no holiday pay says you don't want your employees to stay with the company long.
