    I have been working at Global Marketing Concepts full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great management. Very positive and supportive atmosphere, everyone wants to see you be successful and will coach you to get there. Amazing growth opportunity. The negative reviews here are from people that aren't willing to work hard to get to their goals. I've been with the company since October 2016 and have had increased success and promotions. Hard work pays off.

    Cons

    It is a sales job, where you're constantly meeting new people. If you're not driven, determined and ready to learn and grow, this isn't the place for you. Go get a 9-5 where you'll cap out in two years working for someone else. Your success or failure is your choice.

    Pros

    A lot of team building, learning new skills, and being put out of your comfort zone a lot. Plus management is very helpful.

    Cons

    Pay isn't that great, days are long, and promotions are hard to obtain. And there's a lot of traveling involved

    Pros

    I really liked that every day is different. I liked getting to be out of the office during the day meeting with customers and clients. I also liked the advancement opportunities and the endless earning potential. This job requires individuals with a strong work ethic, which was perfect for me. I knew that if I worked harder than someone else, I would be compensated for it accordingly. I also liked the team atmosphere!

    Cons

    The biggest con for me was not being able to help certain customers. Not everyone qualifies for the service GMC offers, and sometimes you would spend a long time with someone just to find out they did not qualify, wasting a large chunk of your day. A typical day is 8-5:30, but occasionally you are there past 6.

    Advice to Management

    Run more contests/competitions in the office! Contests would always get me excited and motivate me to push myself.

    I have been working at Global Marketing Concepts full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've been working with Global for a few months now and I'm really pleased with the flexibility and energy of my new work environment. Overall, I've learned some new things and am gaining new skill sets every day. Also gunning for the next trip to the Florida Keys, hopefully ill do well enough to get invited to that company event next quarter.

    Cons

    The pace. My last job was not as demanding, but hey, at least I'm not bored. Also, bonuses are based on the quality job you do with customers, so make sure to make you spend time with every client or it will reflect in your paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    More business trips. It was awesome getting that new perspective on the direct marketing industry and I'd like to have the opportunity to travel more with the company.

    Consultants need to cut their own earnings and learn to treat their employees like humans. Thats what real companies do.

    Great work environment and fun job. It is performance based if you don't have good work ethic and give up easily this isn't the job for you. Opportunity for ownership in under a year. Fun and exciting business tips (ocean city, myrtle Beach ect) bonuses are thrown often. You can honestly make up to 2000 a week. 8-5 hours

    Cons

    In sales people can be very unwelcoming at times.

    Advice to Management

    I love this job and want to thank Paula for the opportunity

    As an entry level candidate you are able to learn customer service, sales, marketing tactics, and team work.

    You have to work 8-5:30 M-F.

    I do not have much to say to management, since I was able to communicate every day with management about how I was doing and learning everything.

    I worked at Global Marketing Concepts full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people are very friendly, rather unprofessional sadly.

    Cons

    Pure commission base+above the required quota, the offered salary payment plan is actually a quota driven salary.
    Claim 9-5 actual 8-6ish

    Advice to Management

    Good people, please make clear salary is not salary when it is pure commission driven.
