    I worked at Market Day Corporation part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, fun environment. No one slouched on their jobs. Management was also very involved helping to get the orders out.

    Cons

    There aren't any cons that I can think of off the top of my head. The only reason I left was that I graduated college & moved back home.

    Advice to Management

    No constructive criticism for management. They were very helpful during the time I was there. Our manager came a across as more of a team mate than a "boss"

    I worked at Market Day Corporation part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Market Day was an amazing company filled with great people to work with. The summer taste fairs were the bomb and energy was always high. Market Day products sold themselves.

    Cons

    The pay was not all that great. There was a substantial amount of travel involved. Sales dictated your hours and could stretch well into the evenings.

    Advice to Management

    It is important to remain positive and send that signal to your employees. The energy spreads through the ranks and is contagious and breeds great things.

    Pros

    I loved the flexibility of this job! It was rewarding to know that you were helping Schools and organizations with their fundraising. The management was very supportive and understanding.

    Cons

    The pay was only $60.00/sale, sometimes there was incentives. Most of the time if you figured the amount of time that was put into a sale your hourly pay was around minimum wage. All sales meetings that were required were unpaid. Sampling at open houses was expected and you were only paid if you subbed another account representatives. If you worked your own accounts open house you did it for free.
