    Good entry level job

    I worked at NYSL Promotions full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It's an actual entry level position, rather than those "entry level" positions that require 3-5 years of experience. Helps develop skills and how to navigate a professional environment.

    If you have a good work ethic, a willingness to put yourself out there, good teamwork skills, and are able to produce, advancement isn't too difficult. However, in my opinion, this company is less of a career option, and more of a simple job meant to boost your resume, give you valuable job experience, pay you, and allow you to move on to another, better job.

    Cons

    Hours, commute, work environment is more selfish than altruistic (which is true most places, so it's not a real criticism of the company, but it's still useful information)

    The job is also somewhat stressful, but I guess that more or less depends on your individual outlook.

    I worked at NYSL Promotions full-time

    Pros

    There are really no pros to working here unless you live close to the office.

    Cons

    Commission based pay and if you don't get a lead on a day then it's minimum wage per hour. Retail marketing and door to door. You have to harass customers in store hoping that throughout the day someone will say yes. It is very hard to move up within the company. I was here for a couple of weeks and never got paid. The company has a big turnover rate, I saw many different employees leave and come in the few days I was there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Explain to your employees what they will be doing before making them sign any paperwork.

    I worked at NYSL Promotions

    Pros

    The people there are friendly.

    Cons

    This organization presents itself as a legitimate company looking for candidates to fill a variety of jobs and vacancies for what based, full-time, office based work. This is not true. There is only one office in the suite w an admin. No one else physically works there. Everyone else is direct sales. They have friendly pleasant recruiters who will lie to lure you into the interview.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with potential candidates!

    I have been working at NYSL Promotions full-time

    Pros

    I've learned so many valuable skills at NYSl, from communication to team and time management to teaching others. The work environment is fun and energetic, and I'm almost never bored. The management is personal, and really invests itself in its employees' growth and development.

    Cons

    When you initially start, there is not as much work-life balance, and there is definitely a learning curve that some people are not willing to work through.

    Pros

    If you are not college educated and think you have talent in sales, then this is the place for you

    Cons

    It is very difficult to get promoted, much different than the way it is presented in the interview. Office culture is very cut-throat. There is very little work-life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't treat employees as disposable and make a more positive and inclusive work culture. Don't allow racism and prejudice to continue

    I have been working at NYSL Promotions full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I learned a lot with this company, became more organized, and learned how to manage my money. I loved my coworkers and really wanted to see them all succeed. This company does an excellent job recruiting!

    Cons

    The job itself. No one tells you before you accept the job here that its door to door and retail marketing. They just promise "6 Figures within a year" and while you're dizzied by the idea of bettering your life and setting your goals, you're sent to "the field" which would be a large big box home improvement store to harass customers in the store and try and convince them to reface their cabinets. All in all, you're working 60+ hours a week, only to come back to the office and have the CEO threaten to not pay you the hourly rate you were promised. Within the 3 weeks i was employed there, I never saw a dime. This place is a SCAM

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read the paperwork you make your employees sign upon hiring.

    Because it's a new location there aren't as many employees as the North Jersey headquarters.
    Ii currently commute from Hoboken which is about an hour to an hour and a half commute but will definitely be relocating..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some new employees for Long Island!
