The latest conversations about Advertising
I recently received an offer from iProspect (part of Dentsu) I’ve heard ups and downs about this company. I currently work for a great company and not sure if I should leave. The new opportunity pays a lot more than I currently make. Does anyone have any advice about this company and whether I should take the job or not?

Role at WPP OpenX new company ? I was approached for regional role. I’m still wrapping my brain around the model. Seems good? Always hard to say from ppt slides vs reality. Any thoughts or insights? What’s the culture like? Vision? Leadership? Any pros/cons appreciated

As an ASR you have the opportunity to represent fortune 500 companies such as HP, Sharp, Nokia, or T-mobile in retail stores. Very supportive success driven management. Flexible hours and reasonable pay for a part time job.
Very difficult to transition from part time opportunities within the company to full time or management level jobs. I was the top performer within my district and it was still very difficult to move up within the company.2

Insurance benefits are good. It's a job.
The longevity is short (once the contract for the position ends) They're not very aggressive in keeping good employees. Those who work part time- go elsewhere. I did not witness a very fair work environment for the part time salespeople

Gets your foot in the door with Mobile Sales
Pay sucks for what you do and zero raises. EVERY weekend and EVERY holiday you’re required to work with no holiday pay compensation. All employees are considered part time but all Team Leads work 36-40 hours per week. EEL position only one that gets PTO and they won’t pay out what’s left if you quit. Ever changing commissions make it impossible to make any extra money and the structure is complete garbage. No bereavement pay because you’re considered part time. I have almost nothing positive to say. No room to grow within the company.1

Flexible hours Great pay for part time work Managers work with you if in school or have other schedulng conflicts Lots of options to choose from in different areas of expertise Independence for sales reps that work on the Tmobile project. Feel like your own boss to an extent. I've been employed for 2 years and it's not perfect, but it's a great job. I still get up and am excited to work, most of the time. I've been able to make great money for a part time job. More than I was previously making at my 40 hour a week job. I now work 22 hours a week. I'd absolutely recommend this job. Sales isn't for everyone, but this is the best place to start if you're interested. And I do get paid if I travel, even for 5 minutes time.
Not a lot of room for growth in some programs Some managers/supervisors can be frustrating to deal with

Learned Very Valuable sales Skills Decent Pay Good discounts on phone contract
Had a poor relationship with other staff at the store location Was forced to 'quit' because I could not commute to the other location for part time pay

Very easy work as a vendor inside retail locations, minimum responsibility and you rarely gotta see your boss. That's all I can think of.
This company treats their employees like garbage, doesn't pay mileage and doesn't care how much you have to drive. This is specific to part time employees which are most of their jobs. I worked for both Tmobile and hp via Marketsource. They will randomly give you 1-5 hour long shifts an hour away and expect you to go last minute and not pay you mileage when you gotta go to 3 locations in one day. I also had a nightmare experience when I switched from Tmobile to hp. They did not increase my pay and they did not make it easy to access my paystub online. I tried for months to see it. Finally saw it and knew they were paying $4/hr LESS than what they were supposed to be paying me. Took them over a month to fix the error. And I was just supposed to shut up and be thankful when I finally got the backpay. Being a vendor is a semi pointless and still stressful job becaus you have multiple bosses. You have your Marketsource manager, and then you have every single manager from every retail location you visit. This sucks so much. Especially if you vendor in a Walmart. Management at walmarts regularly kick out vendors over nothing. My last manager would lie to me and play mind games about how certain issues needed to be handled, and she spoke to me like a inhuman rehersed robotic with zero sympathy. If I had to leave early due to a medical emergency once then I would be threatened with a 'coaching opportunity'. They treat part time employees like expendable slaves who better constantly worry about losing their job over the smallest thing. They will threaten to take away your very small quarterly bonus if you don't meet all their ridiculous quotas. And they will have big contests to get you to make more sales, but the contests are horribly unbalanced so the same 5 busiest stores will win thousands of $ in contests literally every week during the busy seasons. Making the lower traffic store reps feel hopeless. What's the point of competing in a commission contest if you have to compete against a store in Hawaii who gets 5x the customers?? It's all a joke. Don't work for this company if you are looking for a real job. They will hire almost anyone. They will hire 20 year olds who've never had a job because they know kids will put up with this kind of disrespect. These kinds of jobs are taking advantage of a bad economy and desperate people. I eventually sabotaged my employment with them because I could no longer stand to listen to my boss make threats and lie to me. Sure I had previous managers who were nice but that didn't make up for the rest of the negatives.4

1. The hiring process is quick 2. You don't have bosses breathing down your neck 24/7 3. Benefits such as medical and dental for part time employees that average 20 hours a week.
1. Lack of overall management. 2. No real hands on training, it's all mostly learn-it-yourself or be fired. 3. The turnover is ridiculous. No one stays for very long. 4. Limited hours and demands you have open availability but will not let you have a second job. 5. Pays very little and comission is based on hours you worked. So you can sell a lot and still make very little in return. 6. You are required to be a part of a group-chat and pay attention to that group chat at all times, even when you're not on the clock.3
