    I have been working at Boom Marketing (San Diego) full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I am given all the business tools and resources to succeed. The meeting atmosphere is intellectually stimulating, but also down to earth and fun. Everyone here works together to accomplish a common goal without the "dog eats dog" environment. A safe work environment is important. It's clear everyone who works here is passionate, not just for marketing, but in helping each other grow. I have learned more in the last year than I did in all my years collecting my degree. There is nothing boring about working here!

    Cons

    This isn't your 9-5pm job. The entrepreneur mindset that is being developed is naturally establishing a higher standard. The more I put in the more I get out. It's not easy, but it's the most rewarding place I have ever worked.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Boom Marketing (San Diego) (Fairfax, VA).

    Interview

    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.
