    I have been working at Breakthrough Events

    Pros

    This is a free business school... a fast pace.. fast track to management, in 6-9 months, be your own boss running these events for $75k starting salary.... the.more shows the more u can make. Direct marketing rules!

    Cons

    You need to quickly build and rehearse your speech prior to your shift. So you end up needing to have a flexible schedule in order to be facilitated through the fast track to management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hurry up and come out with the web portal or I might need to build it myself to show my dedication to our little circle at the office! Lol! ASP.net and some coffee later... Shizam! ! ;-)

    I worked at Breakthrough Events full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Coworkers were friendly enough, coworkers really made this job worth my time, it's fun if you like having spontaneous conversation with shoppers about a product

    Cons

    high turnover rate, manager is not averse to shouting foul language directly at employees in private communication when not pleased with performance, changing location and products every 2 weeks can be hectic, climbing the ladder to management means putting personal goals outside of work aside, schedule is subject to last-minute alterations, expect to work weekends and expect to work much overtime

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more work-life balance, treat humans as humans, don't gloss over the benefits part of a job as if it doesn't matter

    Pros

    3 college credits. (Internship)
    - Letter of Recommendation. (Internship)
    - Huge resume booster. (Internship)
    - I learned more about business in 8 months then I did from 4 years at a University.
    - Became a more effective communicator.
    - Learned how to build relationships
    - Mastered the ability to sell & market different clients
    - Made 40,000 at entry level

    Cons

    Wish I could have stayed longer, personal issues forced me to stop working. Not many cons to be honest. I worked hard and played hard. Learned how to think, look, act, and sell like an entrepreneur. Became more effective in the business world and I learned a ton for it being my first job after college at the Univ. of Hagerstown

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just hope you guys the best and thanks for all of your help and support.

    Pros

    I get to see people that I bring in for interviews take advantage of a great opportunity, not only that I get to see them grow into great leaders but also the best managers. I consider my co-workers my family and am proud of each and every one of their success stories.

    Cons

    Their is nothing negative to say.

    Pros

    The relationships built not only with co-workers but also with HR and the management staff is outstanding. I've learned so much about the business world in general. We have the opportunity to teach, train, and develop others in a very close knit setting. It feels more like a family at Breakthrough than anything, definitely do not feel like I'm just a number here. The opportunity to make money is great, I am making more here then anywhere else I would be working using my degree! I've also been able to get promoted into an assistant management position after a short time of 16 months.

    Cons

    The only cons I could think of would be that there is ups and downs when growing through the training program, but at the same time there is ups and down in everything that we do in life. Nothing is meant to be easy and the management staff is upfront that not everybody will make it into a management position and that is another thing I like about it. What you put into it is what you get out of it!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None- All of you guys do a great job, keep it up!!!!

    Pros

    I've learned so much working for Breakthrough Events. It really helped me break out of my shell and become the type of person I always wanted to be, a leader. It is an awesome experience working for this company and I am so glad to have had an opportunity to meet such amazing and powerful leaders.

    Cons

    None, I ended up having to move out of state to follow my husband who is in the military.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the amazing work and super fun environment!

    Pros

    Nothing, all these "Companies" have the same exact reviews

    Cons

    Seriously look at BIG OPEN DOOR MARKETING, its literally word for word the same BS reviews, please young college kids do not be fooled by these lies, the company will pay you nothing and expect so much in return, i left this company and got a real entry level position for 22 dollars an hour plus commission, i hope someone reads this before accepting this terrible job
