I have been working at Gold Rush 1849 full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Team environment, office nights are a great way to get to know your co-workers! Last night we went to Dave and Busters in Nyack. Everyone who works in this office is very friendly and social. I have formed many friendships over the past year of working at Gold Rush. I believe this is a great environment to experience at the entry level.

Cons

The parking situation in White Plains can be kind of tricky- but I am getting the hang of it!

    Pros

    NOTHING A SCAM
    This place needs to close, it is a pyramid scheme, they will con you into a job without disclosing the facts. If you want to be a door to door Verizon sales person with zero salary, and 100% commission based, this is the job for you. No travel is paid for, yet they require you to go door to door. These types of schemes have existed for at least a century and are illegal.

    Cons

    SCAM
    Door to Door Sales Job
    This is a scam, their old name is VIII Marketing/Cydcor. It is a complete pyramid scheme, I don't know how they are still in business, please do not fall for it!

    Advice to Management

    CLOSE DOWN!

    I worked at Gold Rush 1849 full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None. Gold Rush 1849 is another one of those "marketing" chop shops that lure gullible recent grads by describing their jobs as "sports marketing" while in reality they hire grunts to do door-to-door sales.

    Cons

    This company is another one of those door-to-door solicitation enterprises that describes itself as a "sports marketing company" to drum up interest among college kids and recent grads. They make lots of grand promises and hype themselves with lots of meaningless business jargon, but at the end of the day they're looking for grunts to knock on hundreds of doors a day and hassle people into buying junk like "discount" phone plans. Often, their activities are illegal, violating local anti-solicitation laws while misrepresenting the products they're selling.

    Additionally, while the owners of this company style themselves as "one of Americas premier outsourced sales and consulting firms," one has to wonder why one of the nation's supposed top firms employs high school graduates as "human resources managers" and sales leaders. These are kids operating a sales system one step removed from a pyramid scam -- when they send their grunts out to hassle people into buying things, they keep more than half of the money as commission. The more grunts going door-to-door, the more money they make. This is why they will try to hire anyone with a pulse, and why they are always trying to hire more people.

    Lastly, the owners of this company have changed the company's name several times, and will continue to change the name as potential customers and employees catch on to the type of business they operate. This tells you all you need to know about the integrity of this business. Most companies are focused on building their brand and reputation, while these Gold Rush 1849 kids rename their company every time they burn their reputation to the ground. It's just part of normal business for them. Avoid these people.

    Advice to Management

    Quit this business and go get a real job. You'll thank yourself for it in five years' time, when you've actually got something decent on your resume instead of "Gold Rush 1849," which is sure to leap out from any resume as a red flag. The name just screams "abominable pyramid scheme" and any hiring manager with a brain cell is going to know how you spent the first phase of your career.
