    I have been working at Gameday Media full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Daily cash on sales, weekends off, medical & Dental, starting pay is higher than any call center in Portland or Washington, fun atmosphere, you have to work hard so don't apply unless you want to actually work. The people on here that post poor review just can't sell and that is why they were let go. I have worked for several call centers all over Vancouver Washington and Portland Oregon and Gameday is by far the...

    Cons

    Stressful when you are not hitting goal. Making a ton of calls but it is worth it.

    Pros

    They offer great pay, but you will never be there long enough to collect it.

    Cons

    I saved my check stub from the 1 and only paycheck I received and it was around $ 239, but on my w4 end of year tax forms they said it was over $400 dollars! Someone is cooking the books...someone kept my other $200 dollars....can you say tax fraud!

    Advice to Management

    Stop embezzling money from your employees!

    Pros

    Good experience. Cool co-workers. Independent work.

    Cons

    Production environment for design work. A lot of time is wasted.

    Advice to Management

    Make the salesman communicate with the designers. So much time is wasted from lack of communicating information.

    I worked at Gameday Media full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    No drug test and background checks. They will hire anyone off of the street

    Cons

    This company is a joke and a waste of time! Unprofessional work environment and staff. They take people's credit card info over the phone and write it down on credit card sheets (flying pieces of paper) and leave lying around the entire office (clear access for cleaning people to see). They have ex convicts working as their sales reps that take peoples financials information over the phone. No background checks, no drug...

    Advice to Management

    Close your business down or sell it to someone that will appreciate their employees. Build a better business structure and training. Have an actual adult manage your locations (not children).

    I worked at Gameday Media full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    good base salary. pays right when you get fired.

    Cons

    cold calling no real help bad leads ( you ask who's been there awhile and they will tell you the opposite of what the trainers tell you to do) if you don't have 5 sales you get first in a week but they won't tell you that

    Advice to Management

    work on the employees you have. I was making a decent amount way more than what you were paying me for the company and instead of putting effort into me you choose to fire and rehire daily. I think you'd be better off having faith into those that are somewhat producing for you and get them better lead sources or allowing them to do what they want instead of straight calling from yelp.

    Cons

    This place unprofessional. They hype you up with the salary. They fail to tell you if you don't get a certain amount of sales the first week, then your fired. Try will ask you to move to a new desk on the last day. Then when you get off a really rude hr rep all call you with an attitude to tell you it's not working out. You can't bonus off your sales or leads for a while when you first start. It looked like they...

    Advice to Management

    Learn respect. State expectations and consequences for failure to meet them upfront. Get a better HR approach to letting people go. Stop scaming leads from new hires to give them to vets.

    Pros

    decent bi weekly pay

    Cons

    If you are into just making hundreds of calls with almost no interest in the product at all from anyone you are, calling then this is the job for you.

    I worked at Gameday Media full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I wouldn't even know everyone there seems like they have some type of blindness to whats actually going on. Its kind of like a joke company they try to act like they're professional but its actually the most unprofessional environment so I guess the pro is it's funny lol?

    Cons

    Far too many just avoid this place for your own good if you plan for a career go into insurance, or real estate, or car sales you'll get a much more professional environment.

    Advice to Management

    Hire all new managers and get a new owner thats the only way this company succeeds.

    I worked at Gameday Media full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    It is a fast paced, team centered involvement. The Regional Sales Manger who runs this office does truly care about his employees. Those who are willing to listen and have any amount of sales talent will get a lot of support. If you are unwilling to take feedback, you will stop getting it. You are paid a generous salary for the industry, and have an uncapped earning potential in regards to raises and bonuses....

    Cons

    One Con that is mentioned in other reviews is the until we hit our goal o'clock. This can be a con I will not deny it but it can also be a pro. Over 4 years with the company there were many nights we stayed late. There were also many days we left early. I will say it tends to go in spurts. There ends up being are a few different months in the year that are more late nights than not, and few different months in the year...
