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

    Pros

    -Exceptionally easy to get into
    -Decent pay- hourly plus commission
    -Good life-work balance
    -You're working as a vendor out of an employment agency, so you don't always have your boss hanging over your shoulder
    -If you want to be self-driven and do great work, you absolutely can
    -If you're in college and you need income while you study, this is a good job

    Cons

    -Lax hiring standards and low accountability can lead to shrink, low team syncronicity, and/or poor relationship between vendor and store employees
    -Hourly pay is capped off just above minimum wage, even for team leaders
    -Commission structure can be difficult to work with if the store is located in a low-volume neighborhood
    -Little room for career growth
    -Extreme lack of company culture
    -Senior management often clashes with Target store management

    Advice to Management

    Build a company culture and strategize around it. Don't just be the company that sends people to sell phones at Target stores. Too many of your senior managers really don't know how to inspire and motivate their store leadership.

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

    Pros

    The commission is okay. Get to know what is new coming out. Hours are great around the holidays. Don't have to worry about getting late Christmas gifts. Get a good discount on your phone plan.

    Cons

    Everything you do has a good or bad consequence to them. The guests are somewhat rude, depends on who you get. Also if there is really no one in your district, don't plan to have a day off. Traveling mileage has changed a bit.

    Advice to Management

    Before letting someone go over something really small and not giving out a warning or a write up would be a good place to start. A little more recognition!
