    Pros

    drink for free, make money off of your friends

    Cons

    worked here for a week and realized it was complete BS. Sitting on a computer in the back of a bar for 6 hours trying to stalk everyone you know on social media to get them to come to the city and drink at the same 2 bars.

    Advice to Management

    make a real marketing program happen


  3. Awesome earning potential and a great atmosphere!

    Pros

    drink deals on weekends, fun culture in office, casual dress, nice employees

    Cons

    you basically make all of the money for them and only get commission. interns do the same work as full-time employees with a base salary. the internship is basically a scam. all you do is get your friends to come & have no involvement with actually planning the event


  7. Great company with unlimited earning potential if you are willing to put in the work.

    Pros

    Unlimited earning potential, laid back environment & opportunity to grow your own business. Unlike other some other jobs, this company offers a base salary to show that they are confident you will do well, as well as the full commission on top of that.

    Cons

    You have to work some weekends, but even then you get to network and find new potential business.

    Pros

    Unbelievable earning potential, great corporate culture, laid back environment. This company gives you an opportunity to actually build up your own business and move up quickly...and unlike most companies that offer this they actually give you a salary as well. The salary, to me, means that they are investing in you.

    Cons

    Must work some weekends. Takes a few months to get the ball rolling and can be frustrating at first.

    Pros

    You can do whatever else you want when youre not throwing "parties".. i.e. look for a real job

    Cons

    Be very wary about this company! You may think you're interviewing for a full time marketing position, but in fact, it is a club/bar promoting job. You will be asked to make a list of all of your potential contacts in the area and estimate how many you would be able to have attend an event. Second "interview" is actually making your friends show up to the bar of their choice. No one pays attention to you at the actual event, they just count your attendees. only good part is that you get to drink for free all night (friends must pay). bar staff is rude and chicago twenty something staff dont care about you personally... but why would they, they make money off of every person you bring in! if you don't hit around 100 people on the first night they brush you off and never again mention the original "full time marketing" spot you thought you were vying for. you will receive numerous emails from that point on asking you to have parties so that they can all make commission off of you. of course, if you have a huge social network and party constantly, this may be just the job for you. it's a numbers game and i suppose if you can consistently bring hundreds of people out with you on the weekends to the same boring bars, you might make a considerable amount of money??

    Advice to Management

    dont beat around the bush regarding a full time offer that doesnt exist.
