    I worked at Frontier Promotions full-time

    Pros

    Great opportunity for personal growth and sales/management experience
    Monetary incentives

    Cons

    Never mentioned management position is really just a sales job. They purposely don’t tell you so you won’t leave.
    Door to door sales is not marketing. I was very disappointed as soon as I realized the job was nothing like what was said in the interview and job description made it out to be. Quit after only 2 days despite being told of all the monetary incentives.

    Advice to Management

    Be very clear to potential employees what the job is and what they will be doing. I feel very cheated and used.

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere, awesome support system and opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    It is sales oriented in the beginning which can be a con if that’s not what someone is looking for upfront.

    Pros

    There are no pros in this job. No benefits and no hourly wage.

    Cons

    Door-to-door sales. When you get interviewed, they do not tell you that you have to go door-to-door selling at&t and getting paid only on commission. You have to spend your own money on gas to drive around and they send you to areas that can be an hour away or less. They tell all their employees that one day, they will be rich if they continue to be in the company. They even offer a "new employee bonus," but you will not get it until you complete "training" and if you quit before finishing training, you will NOT get paid at all. Also, the work hours are extremely long, making it difficult to have a life.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to the people you hire, be straight forward and tell them they have to go door-to-door and get paid on commission. No one wants to be scammed.

    Pros

    There are absolutely no pros for this company.

    Cons

    Rather than stating what my opinion is of this company (which should be quite obvious), I'm simply going describe this company’s shady operating tactics in excruciating detail and let you judge what you think of it. If you don’t have time to read this review, PLEASE GO ELSEWHERE FOR A JOB.

    This company is an MLM (multi-level marketing) company. In order words, think of a pyramid. There's the CEO (Christian Swanson) at the very top of the pyramid. Below him are multiple "senior level" managers. In order for the managers to get promoted and move up the pyramid, they have to recruit employees to work below them.

    So how do they recruit employees? They sell potential workers on the dream that if they work hard enough for the company, they will one day be able to branch out and become the owner of their own company.

    This might not sound so bad so far, but guess what? This job is not what you think it is. You probably applied for this job on ZipRecruiter or a similar hiring site under the job title of “entry-level marketing assistant” or “event coordinator” or some other vague description. THIS JOB HAS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH “MARKETING”. You are performing door-to-door sales. That’s it.

    Once you start this job, you’re going to be knocking on people’s doors, selling AT&T products… 6 days a week. If that’s the kind of job you enjoy doing, by all means, join this “company”.

    During the first interview, a “senior-level” manager will ask you a few questions and at this point, you might believe that this job is actually legit. They’re going to say phrases like “Not many people get selected for an interview” or “you were an extremely competitive applicant”, but please understand that they give 90% of their job applicants an interview. After this initial interview, they’ll tell you that they will “consider” you for a second-round interview. In reality, they just say this to sound like a more legit job. Pretty much everyone moves on to the second-round interview.

    During this second-round “interview,” the pyramid nature of this company is revealed in all of its glory. The second-round “interview” is not an interview. This company attempts to convince you to join them, by throwing out phrases like “you’ll be making so much money if you join us” or “you’ll become an owner of your own company,” rather than the other way around.

    Next comes the third-round interview, which is pretty much another one of their “administrators” asking you a few more questions. Later that day, you’ll get a phone call saying that you got the job. If you take the job, you’ll be making a huge mistake.

    During the first day on the job, you’ll find out that the job description is performing door-to-door sales (they won’t tell you this during the actual “interview). There’s no salary and no hourly wage. The only pay you get is commission. Even if you make a sale, you’re not even guaranteed a paycheck. Oftentimes, when pay day arrives, you’ll be informed that some of your customers mysteriously “cancelled” their orders, and you won’t even get paid.

    If you stay in the company for a week or two, you’ll start to advance up the pyramid and become “leadership”. You heard me right. It takes 2 weeks to get promoted in this company (what kind of legit company does this?). At this point, you’ll be told that you need to start recruiting other people to build a “team” and continue advancing up the company ladder (pyramid). Your job now involves interviewing job candidates (oh, and you don’t get paid for the time you spend interviewing people).

    Every time you make a sale (if you can make a sale), the managers above you take a cut (hence the pyramid nature of this company). The company doesn’t have anything to lose for recruiting new people since they don’t give any salaries or benefits, so they try to get as many employees as possible.

    You’re not “special” for getting a first-round interview at this company. You’re not “extremely competitive” for getting through to the second-round interview. You were not “outstanding” for landing a job offer from this “company”. Pretty much everyone who applies gets a job offer. The company sells you a bunch of lies, from the day of your first interview, until the day you quit the job (you will quit eventually), that include “this job will make you rich” and “you’re so lucky that you found this job”. The company tries to lure you into this job (and keep you under their grasp) by selling you on a dream that you WILL NOT be able to achieve.

    Don’t make the same mistake that I did by joining this company. It was undoubtedly the worst mistake of my life.

    Advice to Management

    I don't understand how you guys can sleep at night tricking people who are desperate to pay their bills.
