    Pros

    This is NOT a pro, this is just to add to the cons. What "Michael Gonzales" told me that he needed help as an assistant to do his "personal task". I found him through Craigslist. I came here to check out the company. It involved to cash a 3k check into our account and send it to Binan, Africa. Which is known for smuggling.

    Cons

    I am not sure how he used this company but he managed to attempt to scam me. I looked up the details and it is a huge sign of no when they ask for your age. Jobs are not to ask for your age. I have a envelop he sent of the check, so many flags went off, the return address is a State University in Nor-Cal. A business man using a schools address? Cmon ridiculous. And the barcode was copied and pasted onto the envelope, it's blurry and had an obvious two tone of white. The check itself seems "legit" but it's not, there's addresses that can't be pronounced and cannot be found in the world. Overall what I read about scammers is they use you to get out of there debt. They seem professional but once you tell them you don't have a bank account, they don't talk you anymore. Watch out for false companies. They come to you as wolfs in sheeps clothing. Be wise about sending your address, bank account and social. It's very scary. Please watch out.

    Advice to Management

    Get better verification to the employees, badge numbers and/or Identification.

    I have been working at Market Force Information part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Easy to understand guidelines, They make it very clear what will make the shops invalid and warn not to do it. Reminders before you submit paperwork to verify all info is correct. They pay decent fees when they call me to do a shop especially if i travel to the town south of me which isnt far. Its good pocket money especially if you choose the harder ones like pretending to buy a laptop or open a new mobile account. Higher fees on those. Made nearly 200 bucks last month.

    Cons

    The shops i choose online dont have very high fees but i get reimbursed for my purchases as well so its no big deal. Sometimes reimbursement for food is so minimal that i have to buy the cheapest items or else it comes out of pocket. One place i go to has a $12 reimbursement but i never spend less than $15 even though i get the smallest items.

    Advice to Management

    If the fees were a little higher then i would do all the shops in my area :) Also, the reimbursements should reflect the rising cost of food. Having to order the cheapest items on a menu, that I dont like, to keep within the limit isnt something i like doing especially if im eating at a place i dont normally go. I dont like to pay out of pocket for food i dont normally buy

    I have been working at Market Force Information full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The clients, the work, and co-workers.

    Cons

    Technology is out of date (most reporting is done by hand, manually adding up numbers), boss is barely ever out of their office and doesn't know how to do much of the work, expectations are unrealistic and there is no work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Sit with your employees and learn what goes on with the day to day. Set more realistic timelines, invest money in better technology.
