    I worked at BDS Marketing part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Pay, type of work available

    Cons

    unreasonable expectations, some jobs appear on short or no notice, conflicting information such as being told a project is due on Friday when the launch information clearly states it is due the following Tuesday. .35 cents a mile is not enough

    Advice to Management

    Treat your reps better

      Former Employee - Sales Representative 

      I worked at BDS Marketing

      Pros

      Solid pay for a part time job! If you enjoy sales you will like this job. Very slow at times. Good bosses they care.

      Cons

      They will put you in a different store depending on the program. Possible Examples: Costco, Best Buy, Walmart. It is a sales position and you must be ready. They might/ will cut your hours at the end of the program as it comes to a close. So if you are waiting on a paycheck for a certain amount, plan ahead.

      I have been working at BDS Marketing full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      Once you are employed by BDS and get your foot in the door, it is easy to transition from part-time to full-time, seasonal to permanent, entry-level to management, etc. They offer great benefits, paid training, have a friendly and responsive HR department, and are just a solid group of people to work with. I've always felt secure in the resources made available to me, the training that was provided, and the responsiveness...

      Cons

      Work can be unreliable, as is the case working for any company in the marketing industry. BDS is great about placing you into other programs in the event your assignment ends.
