    I worked at 312 Marketing full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Office culture is very up-beat and motivating. They were very straightforward about the job. They place a large importance on learning and only promote from within. If you are willing to put in the hours and the time you can make a lot of money.

    Cons

    6 day work week. Door to door sales. 10+ hour days, half spent in the office "learning." No benefits. 100% commission based. It is a tough job and you are out there on the streets in the super hot weather and the rain.

    Pros

    I joined this company because in the first interview, the president told me there was opportunity to grow and it was merit based. That is the biggest pro for me. I moved up quickly because I am competitive and work. I also get to have some fun whiled I do it.

    Cons

    I was not naturally good off the bat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the 1-1 coaching up with the new people, it helped a lot.

    Pros

    Commission based compensation
    Advancement opportunities
    Sales experience

    Cons

    You are required to work from 11am to 9pm Monday through Saturday (yes, that a 10 hour day)
    Pay is strictly commission ($91 per sale) with minimal bonuses
    You walk door to door all day everyday selling AT&T U-verse
    You must follow a script, ver batum, with every customer, every time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Door to door sales is outdated, move into the 21st century with your marketing techniques. You are a marketing company after all.

    Pros

    Work ethic is the biggest factor in success, great if you have no experience. Everyone I interact with has class. Very fun work environment, even while working hard. Pretty fast advancement. I've gotten many opportunities to travel and one on one coaching with the C.E.O.

    Cons

    Things can move fast so you must be organized. If you don't have a great work ethic it can be frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep pushing your company.

    I have been working at 312 Marketing

    Pros

    From the first time I walked in, they made me feel welcomed. Awesome people that know what they're doing and make it fun to learn new things. The atmosphere is amazing and all of the out of the office activities are so much fun! They really do give you the tools to succeed.

    Cons

    At first, having to sometimes go out of my comfort zone was tough but after practice and very good training and support, I was able to overcome it.

    I have been working at 312 Marketing

    Pros

    Within the first couple of weeks I was able to learn a good amount of info. My first entry level job I was mostly just getting coffee and treated like an intern
    The first month I was here I sat down w/the owner twice where we went over the training and what was going well vs what could use improvement. Definitely felt like my voice was being heard early on.
    We just got back from a national conference where I was able to meet face to face with senior consultants

    Cons

    It's actually pretty easy to see early on if you're not very competitive you won't progress through training very quickly-not saying you're competing against other employees, it's more of a mindset you have to have.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More weekly competitions!
