    As a Direct Selling Company, the highest integrity to the Distributors. Always review policies to ensure Distributors conduct business in the highest moral standard. Truly a leader in the industry. Staff wise there are plenty of opportunities, especially the company is growing.

    I have been working at Market America full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Market America provided me with the opportunity and experience I needed to advance my career on multiple occasions. After starting as a temp, the company recognized my hard work and dedication and I have received several promotions since. If you put in the work, the opportunity to grow will follow. There is the opportunity to collaborate with multiple departments on projects and teamwork is valued among all departments....

    Cons

    The size and scope of the company mean things are face paced and ever changing. Thus, employees must be able to learn quickly and be a self starter (which may not be for everyone).

    I worked at Market America full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    - Food trucks - Only a few nice coworkers to work with. They're down to earth awesome and make the job not as hard. Some of these coworkers are trapped since they're older and only have a skillset that isn't really desirable elsewhere.

    Cons

    - I find it unfair and biased that the anonymous employee who posted the comment with a title "Opportunity for Advancement" says that he/she got promoted many times after only working more than just 1 year. Favoritism at it's finest. I sure would love to know why they got promoted so many times when many of us others have been here for years and don't get the opportunity. Even with all the knowledge favoritism beats experience...

    Your fake reviews are trash. How about putting the effort to making the company great like the 5 star reviews you claim?

    I worked at Market America full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    The pros were some good co-workers to be around with. My advice is to just get in and get some experience and then get out. Don't stay.

    Cons

    Just about everything. Like I said, its a good job to get your foot in the door and get experience on your resume and then LEAVE. You can never grow or get promoted in your position. It's laughable to think you are able to in this environment. As a bonus, you learn how they try to make a terrible work environment livable. You won't see a single pro review talking about their department. You don't see a review that...
