Wireless Team Member (Current Employee), Virginia Beach – December 12, 2014
Pros: semi-flexible shifts, great interactions.
A typical day is spent helping guest by answering their questions about their wireless devices, and helping new guests choose the right phone and plans to fit their lives. Over my time with Marketsource I have had to constantly learn and grow with today's cell phone market. Lower level management is amazing with them actual caring about you as a person – more... and your needs. In my location I had no coworkers so it was just me and my manager. The hardest part of the job is the hard sell or when a customer has to change their plan against their will. The best part is have customers coming back with their family and friends because they enjoyed their service. – less
Sales Rep (Current Employee), Amarillo, TX – December 10, 2014
Pros: take lunches whenever
Cons: odd hours
A typical work day is rather slow. I go out of my way to initiate a conversation with someone who needs assistance in the electronics department. This company has awhile before it is really up and running on two feet. The commissions standpoint is flaky to say the least. However, the job training informs an individual with a handful of information expected – more... to be retained and utilized in the field. – less

Sales Associate/Customer Service (Current Employee), Troy, MI – October 14, 2014
On average my day would consist of greeting customers and trying to fulfill their consumers needs. I've learned that you can't persuade everyone into purchasing a product, but you can brighten up the day of each individual you come in contact with. My bosses are probably the best employers i've had the pleasure of working with and for. They are very – more... understanding and do respect all of their employees. My co-workers are just the same. I feel that leadership comes from the top, and our top displays the essential features of a great company. The hardest part of my job is going home without a sale. On the flip side, the most enjoyable part is satisfying my guest. – less
This taught me so much about management and merchandising.
Sen. Sales Event Rep (Former Employee), New Orleans, LA – October 11, 2014
Pros: very good depending on the contracts.
Cons: not secure, contracts fall through on short notice.
Easily one of my favorite Job opportunities ever. As a privately contract sales trainer, which is what the position truly is. You make your own hours, you are given a region and its usually a few of the low volume high quality locations until you prove yourself. You get to travel your city every day. If you are into tech jobs with high commissions, – more... this is one to look into. – less
Enjoyed the people i worked with and the people i worked under.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Chicago, IL – October 1, 2014
I liked everything about this job except the amount of traveling. They wouldn't pay you for driving unless it was over 50 miles from your home and then they'd only pay you 50 cents a mile. Was very hard to make ends meet with all the driving involved.
Sales Associate (Current Employee), los angeles – September 29, 2014
Pros: competitions, flexible with schedule
Cons: can be boring, working alone
It is a simple job. You show up count inventory, target pretty much does the rest. During the week its one worker during weekends it is 2 workers. Trainings are mostly done online, and of course we get trained by mobile reps (who by the way are extremely helpful) Just make sales and you are good. There is no pressure. No quota for the month you basically – more... are in charge of your pay. So make sales! sell sell sell! – less
Sales Representative (Current Employee), Buffalo, NY – September 29, 2014
A typical day is busy with lots of interaction with customers. There is continuous education about new products and plans. The hardest part of the job is dealing with a wide array of different personalities.
District Manager (Former Employee), Augusta, GA – August 27, 2014
a typical work day at market source would be a self started work day well as though you would have to make calls through out the day for customers that was either due for an upgrade on their phone or had lines open that could be use. I've learned that when a customer says no and a hurry doesn't really mean the person male or female is not looking to – more... buy it only means the customer does not trust the sales assoicate yet. Management also taught that when comes to sales everythings matter to the words you use to the hand shake. The hardest part about the job was getting the customers to come and visit your locations doing the time they are usually doing something else. The most enjoyable part about the job was seeing the faces of the kids when they first get their first new phone – less
HP Instant Ink Representative (Current Employee), Houston, TX – August 21, 2014
Pros: flexible hours, great benefits
Cons: a lot of driving
A typical work day involved going to one or more stores to inform sales associates and customers on products and services provided by HP. I liked getting to meet new people all the time. I learned how to teach people in a way that makes it easy for them to sell the products I introduced and that makes them interested in them and prefer to sell them – more... over other products. I also learned that there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Everyone is unique and in order to find the best product for their needs, we have to listen to them and find a solution as unique as the customer. I enjoyed working for my manager. He was always willing to do whatever he could to make my work experience fit my needs and acknowledged quality work. The most enjoyable part of my job was getting to go to different stores and interact and get to know all kinds of people. – less
Wireless Team Member (Current Employee), Knoxville, TN – June 15, 2014
Pros: working with people, good experience, pay is okay
Cons: almost no chance for commission, sales quota unreasonable, managers could be chosen better, not very many promotions from within
MarketSource is a good stepping stone into the cell phone industry. They are the ones who employ the mobile department inside Target stores. The training for the positions are minimal so expect to learn mostly on your own while in the store. The pay is a little better than minimum wage and unless you are in a top tier store don't expect to make any – more... commission. On multiple occasions my check has been missing hours anywhere from a full day to multiple days missing from the check. – less
Cons: little work space, sometimes visits run past due a
I use my product knowledge that I received from vendor trainings to pair an individual with the best phone and plan available to them. I have gained much more knowledge in the area of technology sales and the various benefits of every service provider in the district. Management is extremely down to earth and work with you on whatever issues we run – more... into. The most difficult times at work usually branch from a server being down and delaying a sale. We only have one computer to work off on in the store so, busy weekends can get very hectic. My favorite part of the job is growing customer relationships everyday and working with the Target team members to help each other reach a successful day. – less
