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

    Pros

    Everyone is extremely nice, my boss was very understanding and worked with my schedule, I spent a year and a half in this company. The job of Mobile Concierge is what I had, you are a vendor inside of Walmart selling Tracfone products. Which includes straight talk which basically sells itself. Definitely a good easy part time job.

    Cons

    It's only part time, the commission is only a dollar per device, and once you move up so far there's nowhere else to go unless you want to work in the corporate office

    Pros

    Easy
    Fast pace
    Great communication
    You work alone

    Cons

    Sometimes not enough hours and benefits

    Allow more hours

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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, some managers care

    Cons

    Management isn't the greatest. No room for growth on some projects

    Advice to Management

    There's no I in team. Treat your team like they matter. The field team is what makes the company.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Commissions can grow.
    You learn social skills, talking to customers.
    Chill work environment when the boss isn't around. You can still get sales without working too hard, but they want it done in a certain way.

    Cons

    Sanitized culture. I was approached for things I said which weren't out of line...
    People come in knowing what they want, you can only do so much to get the sale.
    Some pressure to sell DirecTV which is very hard to sell (1 or 2 sales per week in all of Austin's 5 stores or so)

    Advice to Management

    Be a bit more casual.
    Forget about the procedure and unnecessary structure, look at what WORKS (staying at the "island" gets you a lot of sales, you don't need to approach random customers)
    Stop pressuring us to do DirecTV. It's hard to sell and it's discouraging to us if we try 30-50 times with only a few interested, and no sales.
