    I have been working at MarketSource full-time

    Pros

    Pay is weekly, discounts on wireless service are great

    Cons

    Low base pay, especially for part-timers.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of changing commission rates, increase the base pay. Other than desperation, why would a part-timer want $8 an hour when they could work for our partner Target and get paid $12? Even a full-time position isn't worth it depending on which tier store you're in.

    The jobs you are recruiting for are part time position. You need a lot of people on your spread in order to see your commission. A lot of cold calling. The sources you use are not appropriate for the jobs you are recruiting. Do not recommend working here
