    The people are amazing and very enthusiastic about helping.


    Work schedule is pretty heavy. It is a time sacrifice.

    Event Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Austin Focus (Austin, TX) in October 2017.


    Applied online and got an email and follow-up phone call within a couple of days. To my understanding, everyone meets in the morning at the office from 8:30am to 10am, then heads to that day's event site. Then the event is from 11-7. And then the interviewer told me they head back to the office at the end of the day. Okay, so 11+ hours a day?

    I asked what the onsite duties of the Event Associate would be. She replied it was to help set-up and keep inventory stocked and to assist in sales. "So is this a sales position?" I asked.

    "It isn't based on commission, it's like retail sales." Okay, so I'm being paid hourly..?

    Then I ask what the pay is. "$33k - $35k BASE PAY"... So, sales? Which also means no overtime if it's salary.

    So then I say, "I'm working 11+ hours a day 5 days a week?" "Your guaranteed 40 hours" was her reply, trying to make it sound like a positive. Yeah, for $35,000 I'm sure you work each person at LEAST 40 hours a week!.. Oh boy.

    She tries to clarify, "The shift is split-up. We work the event from 11-7, but that's between 2 or 3 people. So like 11-5 or 1-7". Okay, but I still have to return to the office at the end of the day, right? "No," she says, "We just return to the office in the morning." HU?..

    Let's recap:

    ~$16.80/hour salary (if you only work 40 hrs)
    No over time.
    Long, all-day shifts.
    And it's "not" a sales job.

    At this point, she was pretty eager to get me off the phone and told me to call her back if I was still interested in the position.
