    I worked at Explosive Advertising full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good and fun co-workers that have stayed friends. A good job while you keep looking for something more legitimate since it's very easy to get hired here.

    Cons

    Was here a few months and the negative reviews are accurate. Knew the girls who worked in the office as assistants and they were very candid about the fact that management has them write the overly positive reviews to balance out the negative ones.

    Advice to Management

    Just be more transparent. It may help with the ridiculously low retention rate.

    I worked at Explosive Advertising full-time

    Pros

    The money was good at the beginning, but this entire company is nothing more than smoke and mirrors. They promise you the world and run all these "opportunity meetings" just to mind you that a majority of this never happens. There are some success cases in the business but not many. Truly it is a great opportunity with the right mentor and platform unfortunately this isn't the case. You'll make great friends as well.

    Cons

    The titles and interviewing is very misleading. Once you get "promoted" to the second phase of management you take on more roles and work many hours to not get paid for. In this company you really have 2 options you either sell, or you're fired. If the manager likes you he works with you a little bit, but if he doesn't you will know it right away... don't be fooled by the "guaranteed" hourly rate, you have 4 days to...

    Pros

    Great energy! You learn what not to do in business!

    Cons

    Lots of smoky mirrors!"leadership" sucks! You have to have little to no integrity to make it to the top! The pay is not what it seems! They make you feel like your turning into an entrepreneur, but the reality is you are still just working for the man. This is not the purest form of entrepreneurship. It's the exact opposite. If you are starting a business and want to know how to be a stronger leader and what not to do,...

    Pros

    -Making new friends, mostly friendly staff at the office and walmart and costco. -Good work while your seeking another job.

    Cons

    Very, very misleading. The positions they advertise are literally all the same job "Marketing Rep/Sales Rep/Account Exec/Event coordinator/manager in training" etc. They probably use fancy labels to entice people to for an interview. This is a straight up face-to-face sales job. Once in the interview, they go over your job responsibilities and talk about the end juicy goal of becoming an "Owner" and all the money you...

    Pros

    Great money for the work done, and a very high spirited office morale.

    Cons

    On your feet all day. Well over 50 hour work week. They want you to come in before work and do things as an office during your off time. Obvious, shameless pyramid scheme, so few last very long. No health insurance, no benefits.

    Pros

    Some of the people are cool to work with

    Cons

    AVOID AVOID AVOID this company at all cost and do not believe a single positive review on here as it is mostly likely from a manager with the company posting a fake, positive review. It is a pyramid scheme and you will not make any real money. They are not transparent at all on the application, but when you meet with Melvin and they get you to the 2nd interview, they explain that they want you to be a vender at big box...
