Your expenses will be MORE than you make

Event Coordinator (Former Employee)
Richmond Hill, ON (Canada)

Pros- 39% of net profit (Event Coordinator level)
- 68% of net profit (Owner level)
- not an office job, somewhat fun
- travel within the GTA
- orientations with business vendors
- great learning experience, if you tough it out

Cons- NO BASE (warning: should be well off, and want to do this as a hobbie)
- must have a vehicle, doesn't matter if borrow, purchased, or rented - you need a vehicle to get from A to B
- kms, gas, cell phone - get ready to rack up on YOUR credit card. ie. always on the road, opposite ends of the GTA and making cold-calls on your mobile (THEY DON'T REIMBURSE YOU)
- 7 am meetings (not paid for), ridiculous - if you've been there longer than 3 months
- like every sales role, territories will be worked up; you have to persevere.
- shady colleagues (non-stop cattiness, it's your business, so people will climb on top of you if they can. ex. steal a lead within your territory)
- more than 12 hour days if you want to survive with this job/at this company
- if successful, and become owner, your expenses could drag your earnings back down if the team you run, does not do well

Advice to Senior Management- TELL THE CANDIDATES WHAT THE ROLE, REALLY IS, because this wastes both parties time
- OFFER A BASE, even if it's minimum wage, AFTER probation period - considering EC has met requirements
- HAVE SET RULES - DON'T MAKE EXCEPTIONS and show obvious favourites

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
