    I worked at B.A.P. full-time

    Pros

    Nothing they lie to you from the moment you read the job posting to the interviewing process

    Cons

    They prey on recent college grads making it seem like it's a real opportunity to work in marketing or PR. But the truth is your selling AT&T services door to door on commission. You have to be at work at 9 but don't get paid until you hit the field at 1.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to people to gain employee, try being honest from the start.

    Pros

    Nothing. Nothing. Nothing. Nothing. And absolutely nothing.

    Cons

    They lie to you about it being door to door sales. They make you feel bad for hanging out with your friends and family. The hours are horrible, and there is not sort of compensation for walking around all day.

    Advice to Management

    Be more mindful of how you treat your employees.

    Pros

    Fun and motivating people to work with

    Cons

    Extremely vague interview, they do not tell you what you're actually going to be doing. They send you to do door-to-door sales or set up a table in low-income areas ALONE where your safety could be at risk. Some days you don't even get to go to the bathroom or get lunch unless you bring food with you. Pretty easy job, but definitely not worth it. Pay is only commission based, no hourly pay. So if you get no commission one day, you don't get paid. 8+ hours of work for nothing. LOTS of travel, you're going somewhere everyday, could be 2 hours away. No company cars to use, and you don't get paid mileage. Just a waste of time and energy all around. It's a pyramid scheme if you want to move up in the company!

    Advice to Management

    Please be more upfront with people before hiring them so they know what they're getting themselves into so they know if they want to accept the job or not.

    Pros

    Maybe the people. They’re all really nice and fun to be around. But really, none.

    Cons

    It’s only door to door sales based on commission, no matter what they tell you. There is no other position or pay option.

    Advice to Management

    Stop scamming and lying to 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.

    None, this company should not exist in the first place... I hope it deteriorates soon.

    Pros

    Most of the people are friendly

    Cons

    Ok so be at the office by 11 dressed in professional attire, stand around for a while in front of a board taking the same notes day after day. Then recite a script back and forth with others for an hour or so over loud music. CEO appears gives long bs inspiration speech he probably heard online for another hr. Now that it's like 230 hurry get 3 sets of paperwork in your hopefully weather proof binders change into your field cloths aka kakis and dtv neon yellow shirt with tennis shoes go to Subway for lunch while you wait on the rest of your team to eat too. Now hurry drive an hour to your territory of the day and visit 70 houses 3btimes talk to hopefully 20 people recite your script while you hope they let you in at least 10 of them. Then hope at least 3 of those people want to by and pass a credit check. Then at 8 get picked up on the side of the road by the team lead ride all the way back to the office stand in line to talk to CEO and report if you made any sales. You better hope you did or he will make you feel like you just didn't try hard enough to get these ppl to by. Be pressured into staying at office and team building by partying. Repeat 6 days a week get first pay check a month in and woohoo if your lucky you made 100 dollars. If they can tell you would a bad review they will threaten a law suit. BTW your door to door so they think they are following the law because they are full commission. But if you read into the fine print off the law if you are a w2 employee they have to pay at least minimum wage and offer health Care to full time employees.

    Pros

    They’ll hire anyone. Once you get ran through the rain snow and mud for 75% of the year you might get promoted from knocking door to door.

    Cons

    They don’t tell you that it’s door to door sales. The hours are ridiculous. It’s just a bunch of people dressed up in cheap suits pretending to be entrepreneurs. Don’t waste a second of your time with this company. Just google devilcorp. This is just another version of it.

    Pros

    They are friendly in a manipulative way.

    Cons

    Was lied to about the position description. What they call customer service is standing outside a store in a low income area promoting government phones. Customer Service is not door to door sales.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lie about the aspects of the position to bring people in. People figure it out fast that it is not what they want, all you are really doing is wasting peoples time and preying on people who need a job just so they can work their butts off to fill your pocket.

    Pros

    Learn to open and close a basic sale. Lots of interaction with a varied amount of potential clients. 2/5 because this is a blow off job that anyone can get. The employees can be fun, but they are all about that work "family life."

    Cons

    Complete lie about being a "marketing" firm. 100% of the work is door to door sales with no benefits. Zero guarantee of income as compensation is 100% sale based. No benefits either. They really fail at selecting neighborhoods to go to. So, many wasted days and drives.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to potential employees about the job and learn to do some actual marketing research before sending teams to locations where no sale will go through.
