Pros

Power Position Group is a great "first" job for people looking to get their foot in the door in the marketing space. The team environment is really strong and all of the co-workers are always willing to help each other out. Upper management is also available for mentoring and training

Cons

The first few weeks are pretty overwhelming but the other employees are always there to help and train. If you are afraid of hard work then this probably isn't the job for you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Plan more socializing opportunities outside of work! This will help the team grow stronger!

    I have been working at Power Position Group

    Pros

    Great experience to get an abbreviated, condensed overall crash course in marketing experience.However, it depends on who is leading the group and their morale compass. While its great to get the shining star into management young in life, the program needs some serious mentorship to help balance out the lack of life's experience and maturity that is lacking and should be expected with hungry, ambitious, talented want a bee's leading the pack in their late 20's or 30's

    Cons

    Great efforts are put into training and improving a quick start up but it lacks consistency. People complain about the long hours but if the program works and it hasn't yet in the Pleasanton area as far as the hyped promotions and new offices opening, then the sacrifice of hard work should be worth it. Too many promises, outright lies, stretching of the truth and even lack of attention to the very important detail that people aren't being compensated for the hours put in are some of the biggest negatives needed to be addressed. The illusion of taking care of these issues is there but many things are never addressed fairly leaving workers walking away with more questions with why they stayed so long. The concept is incredible but again its the manager running the show when you sign on that you need to have full trust in. Delve deep into their character and integrity before signing on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire someone immediately to make sure you are following all the human resources rules of an incorporation. Get some coaches and mentors on board that can help you stick to your work and not over promise and hype. The world of marketing tends to bring that out in people in the excitement of succeeding. In some cases, temper the military style of management for those who may not prosper in that intense of an environment. You may be losing a lot of talented people that way. Stay clear of favortism and try to be fair. Treat others the way you'd like to be treated in every way possible. Focus on relationships, not staying glued to your cell phone to appear you are a busy executive, putting on an image rather than caring about your people. Invest and care about those who have made you look good and refrain from empty promises of promotion, bonuses etc. Be real.

    I expect this business will always spark criticism from those who aren't cut out from it or it someone truly did suffer in getting the money they so rightly deserved. It just discourages me that in reading the reviews, the same problems exist. Sounds like this business still needs to go back to basics and needs an overall to make it work as it has in so many other parts of the country.

    Pros

    Great appeal to people looking to improve their situation and self. Promises hourly+commission and fast management growth. High Energy atmosphere. Useful training for life and career.

    Cons

    Promises are empty, reality is commission ONLY. Extreme hours 6 days a week. Employer pushes to employees work unpaid overtime. A lot of driving required for position. Legal paperwork and payroll seems to be under investigation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Present the company and self in truthful manner, considering and following all federal and state laws.
