    I worked at Chicago Marketing full-time

    Pros

    I loved the people I worked with there and some of them will be close friends with me for life. The environment naturally supports teamwork and continuous improvement. Management goes to great lengths to make sure employees are set up with the tools to succeed and have the flexibility needed to foster creativity. If you are a driven person self-motivated and ambitious this is the perfect place for you to thrive.

    Cons

    Really fast paced (which I loved but some don’t)

    I worked at Chicago Marketing part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The coworkers were nice and cool

    Cons

    This type of business sucks and it gives everyone in marketing a bad name. The reason is that this company focus only on sales. I was going to school and was looking for experience in marketing. I got the job with ease I was happy about it. but then I have to do the maximum hours of 32 hours it's not bad if you don't have school. What you are going to be doing is one going to the office for an hour or two or going to...

    Hi there, we are sad to hear about this experience. We have had a change in management over the past few months and restructured a few things. We were not aware of the situation and would like to speak to you in better details about the circumstance and miscommunications. This is ...

    I worked at Chicago Marketing full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There are no pros other than minimum wage salary. False sense of an opportunity! Always about the big picture or opportunity which realistically isn't for everyone.

    Cons

    A ton of turnover, both in office and in the field. No real marketing for this position--just a sales position. The woman on the phone and ceo lied about salary, pto, and health benefits. Run away from here.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying about the job! Be real and stop using your job to make friends.

    Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We offer different compensation plans to employees based on credentials and prior employment. So if you were at minimum wage it was possibly due to entry level employment which we offer employees a chance to enhance their skills ...

    I have been working at Chicago Marketing full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Honestly it's hard to tell what's real and what's fake while looking for a job I realized. I just got hired on here at Chicago Marketing after searching for a job for several weeks. I spoke to one of their administrative assistants when I applied and had a brief phone interview. I did my homework online and read some negative things and was skeptical. Being the honest guy I am rather than cancel or be the loser who is...

    Cons

    I would say the cons are some of these misleading reviews that are written. If I would of believed them all I would have still been going on door to door sales jobs and making commission working 60 plus hours. Other cons would be the fact that since I'm new I am only working with one of their clients. But hopefully soon I will prove I can manage more than 1.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for addressing these negative reviews with a smile on your face. Most people would not have responded to that very well..... Let alone actually hiring me for being a little rough at first. But thank you for giving a career I can be excited about while still being able to manage my family life.
