    I have been working at Chicago Twenty Something full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Management is approachable and they encourage employees to think outside the box. This company is well run with a strong outlook and it's a great place to gain experience. Everyone is really helpful and continue to teach you and help you grow.

    Cons

    I really can't think of any cons for the company, we have great communication channels in the office and for events.

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing what you are doing. Most important thing is communication in a business and that is definitely something that Chicago Twenty Something has.

    Pros

    fun people but its an ambassador role not an internship.

    Cons

    Not an internship. Street teaming. You sell tickets to their events to your friends. wont make money unless you have a lot of friends in Chicago that go out a lot.

    Advice to Management

    Do not call it an internship call it an ambassador. Its misleading

    Pros

    Ability to see new venues in the Chicago area

    Cons

    Working here was not admirable. Management made you feel underappreciated and it was clear they just used their interns to profit off of. All they care about is numbers and money.

    Advice to Management

    Begin to appreciate your employees. Don't use them just for profit.


  5. "Fun but not much of a job"

    I have been working at Chicago Twenty Something part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Really fun events planned by the company that you can go to and sell tickets for and receive commission. Drink deals and ability to plan events to a degree.

    Cons

    the part-time gig is kind of handed out to whoever whenever and its really just how much you want to bomb your social media networks and friends to buy tickets for you to earn commission.

    I worked at Chicago Twenty Something part-time

    Pros

    I was able to make my own hours, and my salary was completely dependent on commission. This made me work harder, and provided a lucrative part time job.

    Cons

    Incentives at bars were limited based on date, time, and venue. You end up working harder to promote one bar over others even though it may not be in the most desirable location.

    I worked at Chicago Twenty Something (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Cool location in River North
    -Occasional free drinks
    -Free tickets to their events
    -Always staying busy

    Cons

    -Making money off of your networks (friends, family, etc).
    -Low base salary (20k)
    -Looked down upon to leave on time, even without overtime
    -Have to work every weekend at same two bars
    -Your job is to sell tickets-the job description is a lie
    -High turnover (there are at least 5-10 interviews a week)
    -Owner is degrading-threatened job in front of others several times
    -Horrible communication
    -4 other employees

    Advice to Management

    Be real with your job description. Every position offered is just for selling tickets. Respect your employees. Higher the salary. Stop having the same event over and over again (example-several booze cruises a month).
