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

    This job gave me the ability to work and commit to college full time. The hours are not too early and not too late. Enhances customer service skills.

    Cons

    Can become very stressful during the holiday season but is bearable.

    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.

    Pros

    Very laid back environment. Managers want the best for you and push you to be the best.

    Cons

    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

    Pros

    Little supervision, nice wireless discounts, contests w giftcard prizes

    Cons

    Team leads are rude as hell, garbage commission, not paid enough for what im expected to do, inconsistent scheduling. POA is always down, carriers dont honor the promotions they give us, causing a headache for us and the guest

    Advice to Management

    Hire some more motivational people as team leads and captains. Stop blowing smoke up every employee's butts. Give someone a raise if you promote them. Y'all need help, this company is not cohesive whatsoever.
