    I have been working at B.A.P.

    Pros

    There is such an excellent and positive environment at this company. I have learned the meaning of hard work ethic, networking, and stepping up to be leader. I have enjoyed my time here very much so thus far and hope to continue.

    Cons

    The leaders of this company are extremely personable and efficient, however they could portray a bit more professional at times. They are wonderful people.

    I worked at B.A.P. for less than a year

    Pros

    The people who work at the office are cool but the turn over rate is so high that it doesn't count as a pro. There are not any good things about working here except if they give you territory of a nice neighborhood you get to walk and look at nice houses until 8pm when your feet hurt so bad you can barely walk.

    Cons

    This place is very manipulative... they try to make people feel guilty for spending time with friends and family instead of with the team, they degrade people with 9-5 jobs saying they "don't work hard", they try to make you into a sales robot, etc. If you search The Devil Corp and look into it and watch the documentary on YouTube you will understand. Your typical day at work will go from 10am-9pm, 6 days a week. You will yell and scream your pitches every morning to each other until the manager comes in to tell everybody a "motivational" story. From then its lunch time and from around 1/2pmish-9pm is when you go to your assigned territory and knock on doors until your car ride picks you up. If you don't make any sales, the company makes you feel bad to make you think its your fault--to an extent it could be but most times people don't want to suddenly switch TV services through an ATT/DirecTV rep that happened to knock on their door. They teach you subtle ways to be annoying and rude to twist the conversations you have with customers in your territory. People at the office are always "positive". There is a term known as "negging out" (aka being negative/having negative thoughts), which is used when anyone seems just a little bit on the down side. If you are "negging out" they make you feel guilty for it because you have "such an amazing opportunity being able to work here". The company has a way to try to keep their employees by having Team Nights every week (as if you already don't spend a ton of time with them at the office every day) after everyone is done with their Territory so it doesn't start until 9:30-10pm. They use this team night as a way to make sure the coworkers create a strong enough relationship with everybody that they wouldn't want to leave the company... (nice try but that doesn't work!) EVERYTHING is awful about this company and NO ONE deserves to work here and be treated like a servant. Additionally, they post misleading job advertisements asking for "PR assistant" or "Marketing Interns" to target college students/graduates. That is how I originally found the job and the posting seemed very intriguing. However, as soon as I figured out it was door-to-door (which they don't say anything about on the job ad and barely touch on it in the interview) I knew this place was going to be a living hell. The manager once said to us during a morning meeting, "if I straight up said this was a door-to-door sales job in the interview do you think you would be here right now?" this company twists words just to benefit themselves and to manipulate their employees. DO NOT WORK HERE.

    I have been working at B.A.P.

    Pros

    There is an extremely positive environment at this company! I have learned many new skills regarding networking, work ethic, and leadership. I also enjoy the opportunity this company offers for individual growth.

    Cons

    Better Advertising Professionals has an excellent environment, however the space is a bit limited. The company is fairly new to the Grand Rapids area so I believe that this problem will be solved when our staff expands.
