I have been working at Automotive Marketing Consultants Inc full-time
If you work in the office: constantly stocked coffee and tea stations, snacks, and often there are free breakfast and lunch items provided. Another plus: Friday afternoon employee socials to end the workweek.
If you work in positions outside of the office: frequent travel is a plus. These might be seasonal or event-based jobs, but many people are able to make a good living. If you are eager to learn about the products, enjoy working as a team, and have an outgoing personality you can do well.
Unlike other companies I have worked for, AMCI does strive to be more inclusive and respectful of employees' personal lives, especially with big events like having a baby, time needed off for family, etc. It's an open concept office layout which reflects the company's personality. Upper management isn't hidden away in offices.
Everyone is approachable. Input and opinions are valued. Many employees have been there for 10+ years, which is a good reflection of the company.
As a female who frequently works with different departments I can say that I don't see the "Boys' Club" mentality that another review or two have mentioned. There are many females in various managerial positions and decision-making roles. Hard work is definitely rewarded. Pay increases are not few and far between and pay is competitive to other similar companies. (Refer back to note about about many 10+ year employees.) I have been happy to see many employees work their way up within the company during my time there. I have also seen a few employees leave to join other companies only to return to AMCI, so they must be doing something right.
As another review mentioned: it's truly a Monday-Friday out by 5pm job in most cases. There can times where you might be working outside of those usual office hours, but they are few and far between. (It's a really family-friendly work environment compared to other companies that I have worked for.)
One of the only things I can think of: if you work in the office, the commute can be a drag--but that's more Los Angeles' fault and not the company's.
Depending on the job, it might not be steady Monday-Friday full-time hours, but you know that going in and can plan accordingly. Plus, business seems to be always growing, so the likelihood of being able to make a good living is there.
Advice to Management
Continue respecting that employees are balancing work and family life. (Many companies don't.) Maybe reiterate that Upper Management is eager to listen to employee concerns since some of the reviewers seem to forget that or don't take advantage of it.
I applied online. I interviewed at Automotive Marketing Consultants Inc in July 2017.
The interview process wasn't anything that was not out of the ordinary. It started out with a phone screen which led to a phone interview and then a face-to-face meeting. What they didn't provide details on was that there was a client face-to-face as well. Given that was the case, I had to scramble and rearrange the schedule with very little time to do so.
Once the interview process was over, this is where the mass confusion began. They wanted someone to start as soon as possible but appointments were made (medical and otherwise) in the time they took to make a decision. An offer was made but was not able to start as these appointments were unmovable. At that point, the tension quickly increased and communication ceased.
In truth, the position was only short term, the pay was well below market rate, and absolutely zero benefits. It would of been better for them to state that in the job description than to go through all this hassle.
