    Advice to Management

    Event Pro has gone bankrupt! They owe me money as well, apparently the Chief Financial Officer, John Anderson was embezzling money from the company and now they have completely closed down and are currently liquidating all of their assets. Anyone who is owed money by EventPro must now file a Claim.

    I worked at EventPro Strategies part-time

    Pros

    There was always an event in my area

    Cons

    So the business shuts down without any warning to the brand ambassadors. Majority have not received pay in weeks. The CEO is horrible with owning up to responsibility for the people under her.
    I refuse to give up on the money owed to me. More than likely will face a lawsuit.

    Advice to Management

    The people actually doing their job with the client should not have to suffer for their screw ups. Pay your brand ambassadors, the ones doing the actual work and not sitting in an office taking client's money.

    Pros

    EPS is a great company to work with. They offer events quite often and sometimes have ongoing gigs which are nice.

    Cons

    Sometimes it's hard to get on an event or they get them staffed very quickly.


  6. "Terrible"

    Pros

    The employees that handled day to day activity as well as the brand ambassadors were (mostly) fine, and generally flexible. Upper management caused numerous headaches.

    Cons

    Terrible management, inconsistent with finances and budget, horrible communication, and they don’t value their clients that need brand ambassador staff. No ownership of what they do.

    Advice to Management

    The fact that bankruptcy was filed with no warning and people haven’t been paid in weeks indicates how unprofessional, disjointed, and ill-advised the upper management and CEO are.

    Was a great job.

    They kicked us all out yesterday and filed bankruptcy out of nowhere.

    Do better.

    Pros

    Management does a great job training and answering all questions. Very young, fun, new age company with room to grow and prosper in your career. I started as an intern and by working hard I was given a full time role. I have now been at EPS for over a year and love my job. My coworkers are great and the leaders give you the tools to be successful.

    Cons

    Working weekends in the early morning takes some time to get used to. After you've adjusted to working almost every weekend for at least a few hours, the workload becomes a lot easier.

    I have been working at EventPro Strategies part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoy working for EPS and even though we have to endure the hours of standing on site; the whole operation is great. The clients who hire us are great and understanding, the pay is also very good and the communication of employers and employees have a mutual understanding between each other.

    Cons

    The only cons is the standing for long hours. Yes, we do have breaks but some events where it's not as many people or based on the crowd; I think there should be stools available.

    I completely understand they want us on our feet to gather people and get their attention, but I believe there should be seats for us so after we get someone to fill a survey, we can have those quick 3 minute rest which will enable us to work even longer and increase productivity.

    And the last thing is the payment schedule. It was cool when it was 2 weeks, but they recently raised it up to 3 weeks and it's just a personal thing but 3 weeks is too long.

    But if you can handle the hours and the waiting of the payments; it's a very good company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Refer to cons.

    Pros

    A lot of really cool events and great opportunities in California. All the internal employees are very friendly and helpful when needed.

    Cons

    Since moving to a new app it has been difficult to see events, get details about the event and check-in. I think the staff in the field are confused and need additional direction.

    Advice to Management

    More training and opportunities for your brand staff.
