Jonathan Wesley – Why Work For Us?


JW Illinois is not your typical workplace...

Founded in 2003, Jonathan Wesley Inc. continues to expand nationwide, offering marketing consulting services to large corporations. With approximately 30 satellite locations nationwide, our goal is to grow 50% in size every year moving forward. We attribute this tremendous growth to two ideals. The first is our innovative marketing and sales strategies. The second is our underlying value of caring for the security, growth, and well being of our employees.

Our clients are looking for an edge in marketing, advertising, and sales. They must outshine their competitors in each of these categories. Our client acquisition team offers an extremely effective approach to marketing and client relationship management. In our experience, the most effective way to market ones services is through a live, personal presentation. On behalf of our clients, we personally introduce ourselves to their customers in order to establish relationships with them. The power of a live representative is unparalleled. Our approach enables us to educate the customer about changes in the industry, sell our clients services, answer questions, and personally thank them for their business.

JW's personal technique has enabled us to generate huge success for our clients. Our professionals have the ability to present our clients in the best way possible: face-to-face. Our representatives are trained to interact with customers in a friendly, courteous, and professional manner while responding to their questions or concerns. The clients we work with have found it to be the best possible way to acquire and retain new customers.

    I have been working at Jonathan Wesley full-time

    Pros

    The culture here is what makes the difference. Communication is transparent and always have an interest in bettering areas in need of improvement.There's plenty of room for advancement which isn't always the case in large companies. The location of the office is great! Not too far from the city nor the suburbs so prime spot for staffing local venues. Knowledgeable management and helpful staff definitely a team environment.

    Cons

    Busy season is busy! No doubt about that. The growth can be challenging as any company, growing pains, etc. Benefits could be better, but overall I think the flexibility compensates for that.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the momentum of growth going within the Chicagoland office as well as new sectors of branding. Exciting stuff set up for this upcoming year.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Jonathan Wesley (Chicago, IL) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Good experience, very helpful staff. They helped me complete my application all the way through to meeting in person at the Oak Brook office. They answered promptly when I called and asked follow up questions, even provided me an email with more information when requested. Loved the experience, will start employment this upcoming summer.
