    Pros

    Great pay, great people, fun work.

    Cons

    Be advised: if you work for them, DO NOT rely on them to pay you on time. I was late with my rent because of them. They show such lack of consideration for their hardworking employees. As an employees, we're replaceable. We're a dime a dozen. If the "client" didn't want to pay so well, we would probably be getting minimum wage if it were up to Encore Nationwide.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people on time. Is that so hard to do?!


  3. The opportunities available are diversed and interesting.

    Pros

    I love the flexibility of this company. One can work from any place and have the right or refusal for work without judgement.

    Cons

    Payment can be slow from time to time.

    I worked at Encore Nationwide full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    As an internal employee, it provided the opportunity to work directly with clients and gain experience coordinating projects. The company allowed you to see how the back end works and learn more about what clients look for and expect from their temp staff. Gained great experience troubleshooting issues regularly and learned how to work with different management styles.

    Cons

    Management is very invasive in your personal life. They run an inconsistent program and base all of their decisions on how they emotionally feel in the present instead of objective reports and client feedback. Management does not keep track of employee successes and bullies anyone that suggests more efficient, professional, and effective ways of doing business. They impose unreasonable expectations with little reward, pay, or recognition. If you are an independent contractor, you will be hired to work events however they will not send payment when originally stated. In most scenarios, it takes over 3 months to receive payment. That is, if it doesnt get "lost" in the mail. Money management is not the company's strong suit.

    Advice to Management

    Put pride aside. Work objectively, not subjectively. Listen to your employees and take heed to what they say. Implement change. Put more emphasis on paying contracted staff in a timely manner. Stop trying to nickle and dime independent contractors. STOP BULLYING BRAND AMBASSADORS, PREVIOUS CLIENTS, and EMPLOYEES WHO SEEK TO HAVE A BETTER WORKING RELATIONSHIP WITH ENCORE NATIONWIDE!

    Pros

    The pay. The pay. 5 word count.

    Cons

    I'll put them in management

    Advice to Management

    Unsecured website has you giving your social security numbers. Sending .pdf files for training that say click link here to go for training.... links often don't work and require you to ask a manager where to go. Everything is setup online. They just hire you online no phone interview or anything. You don't get paid for a month after working 2 full weeks with no days off over and over again. Its just risky on so many levels. You might not get paid if you don't comply with their rules, not get paid for 2 weeks of work, but you won't find out for a month. Plus the whole unsecured website taking your social security number. Seems like a problem waiting to happen. Its a tech heavy company with a company that knows nothing about tech. No benefits despite working full time and beyond.

There Policy is 4 to 9 weeks and counting...They Just contacted me for an Event for May...Hmmm Payment in September?? No I will pass...:(

    Pros

    *many events available *they hire both male and female brand ambassadors

    Cons

    Out of all the promotional agencies I have worked for, Encore takes the longest to pay. I honestly have to email them several times to hear back from them. I worked an event with them in Oct and wasn't paid until early march!.
