I worked at MarketSource part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

There are no pros when working for Target Mobile, Marketsource.

Cons

Pretty much everything.

This is the most mis-managed company I have ever seen. Pay is terrible, schedules are terrible, and management is worse.

-Career Opportunities - there are none.

-Compensation - Reps start at 8.25 and go up $0.25 every 6-12 months.

-Work/Life Balance - None. Target Mobile reps are expected to show up whenever called in to do so. When holidays kick in, hours are extended without notice, and you are expected to work them regardless of your personal life. There is no work/life balance with target mobile.

-Culture and Values - there are none. Its all about sales. If you sell phones, you are deemed 'effective'. If you don't sell phones, for whatever reason, you are deemed 'ineffective' and fired.

-Other Complaints - there is always a shortage of team members. So current employees are forced to work more hours. Scheduling is terrible, so you can't go to school (college) and work for target mobile because of scheduling conflicts. (they dont work with you) Time off is non-existent. Most requests are denied, all the time, due to shortage of team members. Communication from management is very unclear, comes at random times, through texts, emails and phone calls at all hours of the day, even on your days off. Average time that team members last, is about 2 months. Most quit because they get tired of it all. Its a terrible job.

My advice... do not work for Target Mobile. Its a waste of time and you'll regret it afterwards.

Advice to Management

Act like a real company, create structure that is visible to all, actually care about your team members and stop firing everyone

    I worked at MarketSource full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company itself treats employee's fairly and is well compensated compared to some of the competition.

    Cons

    At the end of it all, your employment is based on the client, if they change their minds on something, you can be randomly laid off.

    Advice to Management

    Try to secure positions in your contract negotiations for full timers.

    I have been working at MarketSource part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very Flexible. Works around your schedule. Easy job because you don't have a manager breathing down your neck. If you are good with people and can find enjoyment out of new technology this is the job for you.

    Cons

    You have to work weekends, and alot of hours during the holidays. There can be some weeks where you only work 10-12 hours a week, which blows on the pay check side.

    Advice to Management

    More hours.
