    I have been working at MarketSource part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good coworkers, good work environment, tech savvy, they trust the employees, somewhat regular shift scheduling, easy training and onboarding. Good team leader.

    Cons

    Put me on closes all the time, scheduling happens week to week, not in advance, barely paid above minimum wage, commission schedule is unusual, push insurance sales, even though it barely benefits you as an employee and sometimes annoys the guest, uncertainty of getting requested time off, not enough high selling phones stocked.

    Advice to Management

    Be more active with scheduling, balance the shifts more, eg. Have a typical closer open more often, have a typical opener close more often, don't put the same person on close every day, raise the hourly rate a little, don't pressure us to sell phone insurance as a priority, send more requested stock to stores that are short a specific phone, make commission known when we'll receive it instead of random, and accept requested time off before the last minute.

    Pros

    Decent pay, flexible hours, cool coworkers.

    Cons

    All they really care about is how much you sell. They always phrase it as “benefiting you” if you sell more but it’s bs.

    Pros

    Helping the old people can be sort of fun sometimes. One time I grandmother i helped set up her first smartphone maxe me a huge batch of cookies. relative independence if you are the only rep in the store.

    Cons

    They simply dont pay you enough to.do what they expect of you. On top of that, they do no advertising. So nobody knows that target has great deals on phones. The gift card promotions are great but ppl just dont know about them. And 99% of.people who walk into target with no intention of buyung a phone wont buy one, no matter how many random peopke you walk.up to. Also the commission system is a joke. You have to constantly sell phones or the ones you do sell give you nothing. Its almost like it was designed to give the employees.the minimum compensation for the specific environment they have to work in

    Pros

    Great Benefits
    Great DMs ( I liked mines atleast)
    Good location from home

    Cons

    Unprofessional.. they shut down the kiosk I worked at without saying much ahead of time, they took too long to get back to me about 'switching' and are trying to give me a lower position than what was given.

    Advice to Management

    TREAT YOUR EMPLOYEES BETTER. I was not given a chance to turn around a struggling store and that really hurt. Next time a little warning would help!
