I was only there for a very brief time, it didnt take me long to realize that the company did not care about their employees or their clients... The sales Manager Monica referred to  her clients as "her next victims"    She came into the office always smelling of drugs and the entire sales staff would comment about how the entire office smelled like a dirty ashtray/skunk after she walked into a room. There is nothing wrong what someone does outside the office, but to start the day like that at least 4 days a week was uncalled for.

On several occasions she was asked to go to the bath room and put purfume on.  She was bossy, arrogant, and did not offer one bit of constructive help unless it benefited her... she just expected to get a piece of the money of anyone that had to sit in her office for more than a day. Literally, half the employees quit while I was there because they could not take her hypocricy, and the other half that stayed has no respect for her.  Now for the worst of it. This company is a shadow of its former self.

Back in 2016, It was called Prestige Marketing out of Woodriver Illinois, look up the horrible reviews on indeed..., and the two owners... a mother and son team, had over 250 employees and ran the company into bankruptcy.  If that company was so good to its employees, then why is not one of them except Monica working for them?   Here is the reason...   The owner Matt and his mother Rhonda truly belittles their employees..they only could keep family members working there...and the uncle was so drunk most the time, you couldnt even sit by him in a meeting because he smelled like a dirty whiskey factory....both two top salesmen, Monica and the uncle, neither had a car and had to get rides to work...so that is what a long term career with these folks looks like.

The management style is completely stressed out and both mother and son take it out on the salesmen at 80% of all their meetings....You are told that you must have greed in your heart in order to be a good salesmen there and that most people who buys these lists dont even use them.  If you were in a positive mood before you walked in the door in the morning, you would literally feel down and depressed after one of their closed door meetings. Although the most salesmen that worked there I saw at one time was around 8 employees...  I saw over 6 people quit in under a month. The place is a revolving door. 

Matt, the ceo,  did his best not to yell at his employees, but that is just his nature, and if he came in hungover at work, there would be hell to pay.  In which was several days a week.  If he would get help and quit the drinking, demote his manager to an employee,  take classes on anger management, and treat his employess with respect, he will have a good name.  Sure, he can still make money and continue doing what he is known for, and the loathing arrogance within,... but  doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result is by definition: insanity.  Peace of mind and integrity far outweighs the fear of a leap of faith to have a better life. In which working there, was a very miserable experience.

POSTED: Wednesday, March 14, 2018

I have worked for US Marketing Source as a web developer and i can honestly say that they have treated me very fairly. I have NOT seen ANYTHING whatsoever illegal or wrong. They treat the employees great. When I have a problem with anything at all, i am able to bring it to their attention and they help me with it calmly. I can truely say that i have never ever seen matt freak out and start going off about anything.

He is passionate about this business and loves helping people. US marketing source is defintely a good place to work, you just have to work hard and actually work when you show up. thats it. its pretty easy working here and enjoyable. Ive seen them help there customers and employees. I like working here and i do advice if anyone is wanting to do business with them, you can trust them.
