Former Employee - Brand Ambassador/Campaign and Events Marketing Coordinator in Atlanta, GA

Pros

-The morning meetings are really great. But they are honestly used to keep you feeling like you can keep going to Sam's club to sell stuff.
-You get every other Monday off. And the Monday you work, you get your pay check.
-You can quit without a 2 week notice. Because so many people find out this is not the job for them.
-The people who work there are really nice.
-Some of the products are really cool.
-Teaches you to be more positive

Cons

-Long work days 8:40a-7p or later, once you get promoted, you may have to come in earlier. On set up days you have to get to the Roswell location at 5p and you may not get home til 1am or later.
-You drive a lot! You have to drive to the Roswell location Monday- Saturday and then go to the store which could be more than 50 miles away. And if you are not scheduled to work right after the meeting, you don't get your gas stipend.
-You have to stand in Sam's Club, Kroger all day and try and get people to buy products that they don't really need.
-They want you to take short breaks so you can get back to the selling floor.
-You have to memorize their marketing systems verbatim, because everyday you will get grilled and tested on them.
-When you get promoted you have to do more work with no pay raise.
-As we all know, standing on your feet all day does hurt.
-There are no benefits.
-You get paid $7.25 if you don't hit or exceed your goal ($600-800) or you get commission if you hit or exceed your goal.
-Your bi-weekly paycheck varies from $400-700
-You are taught to embellish the truth when talking about products that are sometimes cheaply made and crappy.
Honestly if you don't want to be over exerted, underappreciated, and underpaid don't work here!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Working with ATL Events Group has been an amazing opportunity! You learn so much in such a short time period! I excelled quickly through the program and have met a lot of other successful and fun people while working here. Everyone is very positive and has great attitudes. Best part about working here is by far the people! The relationships made here are great. Hardest part is being patient. Not everyone learns at the same pace so being patient with myself and others was a struggle for me personally. The management is great they understand/are flexible in different situations and explain why things happen instead of just telling you to do something, so everything is a learning experience.

    Pros

    Great work culture, lots of expansion and growth opportunities, get promoted quickly, great management and organization

    Cons

    Sometimes there are long hours, but it's worth it by how quickly you can advance within the company. Also, the pay during the training is just average, but once you get promoted, the pay is great

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great company culture and training systems. I've enjoyed all the managers and mentors I have met within this company.
