    I worked at JAM full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great work environment, awesome staff, and business casual. Very good pay and benefits. If you like good money, music and a good team this is the place to work.

    Cons

    There is no cons to this place, that I have seen. It really is a great place to work as long as you can get your job done, there should not be any problems.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at JAM.

    Interview

    Walked into a very informal setting of five or six twenty-somethings. The 'interview' was much less of an interview and more of a sales pitch; they glorified the position and mentioned a few times how I would be in a management position within months. The person conducting the interview went as far as to tell me his salary which I found extremely unprofessional. After five minutes of listening and not giving any personal background information, I was invited to meet them 'on site' the following day. I did show up but already knew it was a scam. I left that moment and never looked back.

    Interview Questions

    • I was handed a product in the middle of a retail store and told to use techniques, such as grab the shoppers arm and place the product into their hand, and try and sell it to them.   1 Answer
