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

Pros

Great people to work with.
Learned indirect marketing

Cons

$8/Hour vs Commission
7:30am meetings were cool but didn't tell you if you are schedule to work until the day of.
Inconsistent. Manager can take you off the schedule for a week whenever they want even two weeks off.
If you do not want to own your own business within the company, you are wasting space.
Employees quit or get fired every week. New people all the time.
Manager is leaving the business soon and has not warn most people in the company about what will happen.
80% of the people that work here do not make it.
Random products you promote and sell.
They say that they aren't salespeople but they are.

    I have been working at Boom Marketing full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Plenty of hours and growth. No cap on performance incentives so I my paychecks have improved every week. Great team environment and training offered.

    Cons

    Plenty of hours and a learning curve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give me more, I can handle it! Advice to other posters: not everything is for everyone. Don't post negative stuff on here if you got fired for not being able to follow simple protocol. I've never seen anyone let go for any less since I've been here. Learn from it and move on. Advice to future team members: remember ANYONE can post ANYTHING online.

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

    Pros

    Cool people, everyone is young.
    Cool team environment.
    Makes you feel like you're doing something important.

    Cons

    8$ an hour VS Comission. Not $8 an hour plus commission. This means $8 an hour, don't let them convince you otherwise.
    There is no set schedule. They make it up when you get there at the 7:30 AM meeting everyday. There could be a 4 hour gap between the morning meeting and when you're scheduled to work and you will not know until you get there. This eliminates any possibility that you can work a second job. The only guarantee is that you will not work on Monday or Tuesday.
    They say they're going to teach you state of the art sales and marketing techniques but really what they teach you is to lie to the customer. Oh, and that 90% of people you will talk to will not want to buy what you are selling so the biggest part of the job is not getting discouraged that you are making $8 an hour.
    They bait you with the Assistant Manager title, claiming that you can make $40,000 to $50,000 a month after 6 months, but the only people working there have been there more than that and have not reached that position. In fact, nobody there had. They're all still making $8 an hour.
    They make you memorize pointless "systems" word for word that are meaningless and contradictory.

    The list goes on.

    I wish I had listened to the bad reviews on here and not the good ones before I devoted my time to this place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the commission system, and be up front with people about how much they're going to making. Also, make a schedule in advance so that people will know what they're working beforehand like a normal business. Also, stop giving people false hope because you're ruining lives.
