I have been working at Boom Marketing (San Diego) full-time (Less than a year)
Plenty of hours and growth. No cap on performance incentives so I my paychecks have improved every week. Great team environment and training offered.
Plenty of hours and a learning curve.
Advice to Management
give me more, I can handle it! Advice to other posters: not everything is for everyone. Don't post negative stuff on here if you got fired for not being able to follow simple protocol. I've never seen anyone let go for any less since I've been here. Learn from it and move on. Advice to future team members: remember ANYONE can post ANYTHING online.
I applied online. I interviewed at Boom Marketing (San Diego) (Fairfax, VA).
STAY AWAY. This is not a real job. The receptionist was very nice, but my appointment was at 11am and I was not interviewed until 1:30pm, due to the overbooking of applicants. The hiring manager, aka the CEO of the company, was rude to me. They will try to tell you that their company is making a lot of money and working with large retail clients, but if you look at their shabby office of stained walls and bare fixtures, it's a major red flag. There are no benefits, you will drive yourself to surrounding locations to "market" whatever product they assign you to, gas will be reimbursed (10cents to every gallon you use) through a third party agency (no $ for car maintenance, that's all you!), overtime hours and the hiring manager was vague when I inquired if the salary was commission based. Finally she admitted that a large percentage, if not all, of my salary would come from commission. If a job sounds too good to be true, IT IS. If you're desperate for a job, try looking at Costco, Starbucks, or even look into being represented by a temp agency. Research the companies you're applying for. If you look at this company's website, the information is vague and doesn't tell you what companies they work with, or include press releases of their previous work. DONT waste your time, spend that energy to applying to more concrete jobs.
