    I worked at Determined Marketing

    Pros

    When you first start they are the sweetest people you ever want to meet... You're getting your apps they are happy... But don't have an off day....

    Cons

    Hopefully you don't get sick working for this company because you will get fired... Not to mention it's like you're disturbing the people trying to come in for a peaceful shopping experience

    Pros

    This company is awesome to work for they treat you as an equal, support you in advancement and support your success. In 5weeks of employment I was promoted by owner recognizing my hard work. I been to regional meeting and Everyone! was very forthcoming with knowledge. This companies primary goal is to train you to be successful. Not one day has gone by in the last 4 months have I not wanted to go to work. The support from coast to coast is remarkable. Never have I had a company with such success treat me as an equal like this company has no matter how far up the chain you go. I'm so pleased to be part of the Determined Marketing Family. I look forward to my future opportunities because I have finally found a company that will recognize and produce opportunities if you work hard.

    Cons

    I have nothing negative to say. I am very blessed to work with this company.

    I worked at Determined Marketing

    Pros

    First of all, I would like to say that Drew and Julie Diana of the Charlotte market are absolutely hands down 100% once in a lifetime incredible people. I urge any and all of you who are given the opportunity to work with them to approach this opportunity with an open mind and student mentality. Drew and Julie have so much to share with you and to speak into your life, IF and only IF you are willing leave your ego, everything you've learned before, and skepticism at the door. You have to be ready to work hard and step out of your comfort zone and you WILL make A LOT of money. They know what they are doing and trust me when I say they are very good at what they do. Drew has an open-door policy and is more of a COACH, LEADER, and MENTOR than a boss. He encourages mistakes as teachable moments. He's also a very tough boss with high expectations. He will hold you accountable and you will be better for it. His wife, Julie, is the backbone of his office and is a highly organized individual. She is more than happy to support you with any and all of your needs. If you are new to this position, I urge you to utilize her! She was always very helpful to me. If you desire CLASS A sales training and marketing techniques and tactics, you are in the right place. The skills you will acquire at this job position will make you A LOT of money over your lifetime if applied correctly in ANY AREA of your life. If you were given this incredible opportunity, I urge you to take it very seriously and give it 100%. The training you will receive here is a gift that keeps on giving. Forget anything you have learned before, leave your ego at the door and allow yourself to be changed forever by this opportunity. With the proper mindset going in, ambition, and pure motivation, you cannot go wrong here. Not only will you make really great friends and be a part of a company with an awesome family atmosphere, you are going to have A LOT of FUN! Drew is a very generous and giving boss, who invests in his employees on a weekly basis. During my time in Drew and Julie's office, they fed me dinner on multiple occasions, took me to an NFL game!, gave away 2 TV's to high performers, bought breakfast, doughnuts, orange juice, coffee, and the list goes on and on about how much Drew and Julie care about you. There just aren't words enough to say what an incredible opportunity this was for me, how much it changed my life, and how much fun I had at Determined Marketing. It is literally a part of me and I will never, ever, forget the time I spent at Determined Marketing. This position is a life changer. Drew and Julie are life-changers. It's the hardest I've ever worked and the most rewarding position I've ever had. I can't speak for every market manager in this program, but Drew and Julie are amazing leaders, mentors, and coaches. Go in with a humble mind-set, ready to learn, and ready to become your best self. If you continue in this program, you have a Six-figure potential in a relatively short amount of time. If you are not able to continue in this position, you will leave a refined professional, with skills to pay the bills for a life time anyway.

    Cons

    The downside of working at Determined Marketing is that is a very demanding position. It will make you or break you. I can say it's not the most Mom-friendly position. I worked very long and hard hours for months on end, and eventually I just wasn't able to continue, but I was very, very, blessed to come in with an open mind and take from the experience so many things that will serve me very well in the future. This job requires you initially to step way out of your comfort zone. I wouldn't let that be a deal-breaker for you. You'd really be missing out. Go in and give it your absolute best shot. There is some traveling required. You can look at this one of two ways. You can look at this as a major negative, or you can look at it as over-coming fears and crossing boundaries you wouldn't have normally crossed. You are going to build some awesome and profitable relationships during your time at Determined Marketing.

    I worked at Determined Marketing full-time

    Pros

    There really isn't a "Pro" that I can give to this company. If I had to say something, then it would be that you get some basic sales training.

    Cons

    Do not listen to a single positive review for this company. They are having their employees log in to give false ratings and statements. It's a Pyramid Scheme with a cult mentality. Work 6 days a week and split your sales with people who "manage" you. If you have any kind of education, then stay away. These people are leeches. You'll owe them money if you quit and that's how they get you. Make minimum wage unless you have sales, then have what they paid you in hourly while you were not making sales taken out of your check after you start making sales. You are trained to be absurdly aggressive to potential customers. They expect for the employee to give up any personal life that they might have and force "team nights" on them at local bars.

    Determined Marketing Response

    February 1, 2016VP of Human Resources

    The type of pay structure you're describing sounds like the "draw system" pay structure that was in place when Determined Marketing started in 2010. Starting January 1st, 2014 Determined Marketing removed the "draw system" from the business and no longer operates off of a pay structure that permits us to claw back money advanced to an employee because they didn't meet their sales quota. Team Nights are not typically at local bars, unless you attended a team night after a Panthers or Knights Game in Uptown! Our team gatherings vary from cookouts to Super Bowl parties to baseball games and are not required. We are about a team environment and want our employees to feel like partners, not employees. It is clear the experience you had with Determined Marketing was not a fabulous one; we are pleased to say that much has changed over the last couple of years with our business model, pay structure, and company culture.

    Pros

    I felt welcomed from the point of the phone call to to book my interview. I walked in and met the hiring manager. He was very humble about his position explained the opportunity his company offers. I can honestly say iv never interviewed somewhere like this before.

    Cons

    I have no cons! It's a big building easy to find.
