Negative Outlook

I worked at New Era Events full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

* Public Speaking & networking with others

Cons

*The pay is minimum wage OR commission averaged out over a period of two weeks. In the end you don't make over an average of $10 dollars an hour.
*You have to compete for hours.
*Extensive travel, gas expense out of your own pocket (over 30 miles a day)
*You have to attend weekly meetings, even if it's a day off.
*Sporadic days off every two weeks- quickly burn out.
*Constantly on the phone with several people and conference calls that you are NOT compensated for.
*Poor culture- lack of discretion and tact on behalf of manager and staff. A cult like mentality that takes advantage of recent college grads and the generally naive.
*Extremely high turnover rate. Many don't stay longer than a couple of weeks.
*It's not marketing its sales. The 'event' is a booth at Sam's Club or Costco. You're basically a sample person.
*Daily sales revenue is extremely important despite what management says.
*Travel expenses are poorly taken care of. Out of pocket expenses include everything but hotel and car rental. Usually placed in poorly kept hotels with conspicuous clientele. They hardly have microwaves or fridges so you are forced to eat out every day.
*Promotions take up to a year, and even then you are FORCED to move out of state with little hope for success. Even then you are not in charge of yourself; you still have to be compliant with Smart Circle.
*CEO uses profanity and degrades other female employees

    I have been working at New Era Events full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The training program, gave me a wealth of business/marketing knowledge in an accelerated time period and improved my communication skills.

    Cons

    The training program took a lot of my once available free time. I wasn't able to be around friends and family as much as I became accustomed to.

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to do the program, come into to it with all your eggs in one basket and fully invested. You will see rapid growth and make strides to management very quickly.
