    I have been working at J&L Marketing part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working with J&L has allowed me to travel, meet tons of professional connections, and make a pretty good amount of money while doing it. Love J&L!

    Cons

    When you have to balance work travel with a busy school schedule, it can be sort of stressful. But definitely worth it in the end!

    Advice to Management

    Be more efficient with scheduling. Often we only get 1-2 weeks notice for when we will be travelling, more would be ideal.

    Working for J&L has been great marketing/sales experience. They are very flexible with your schedule and you get to travel to a lot of cool places!

    I have been working at J&L Marketing as a contractor (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    *Flexible- I've been doing this job since 2007 on and off because it works so well with my schedule
    *Travel- usually it's within a 2 hour radius of my home, but I've been to San Francisco, LA, Vegas, Chicago, places I wouldn't have been going to on my own. Always in nice hotels
    *Incentive and reward- they recognize good work, I've consistently been given raises due to good reviews, and I was upgraded to a trainer/mentor as well
    *Easy- as long as you can talk to people and have a professional rapport, it isn't a difficult job
    *Pay- when I started as a college student I couldn't have ever expected to get that starting pay anywhere else

    I've gotten at least 6 other people to PC. I definitely recommend it.

    Cons

    *Consistency- certain times of the year are slower, so the money isn't always consistent

    Advice to Management

    Let PC's know if a dealership had an issue with their last PC or promo, so we can know what to expect more walking in.

    I have been working at J&L Marketing as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great hands-on job & great resume builder. Requires responsibility in order to succeed! Flexible schedule, only required to work two weekends per month. That is great if you are in school or have a weekday job.

    Cons

    Probably not much room for advancement as far as becoming apart of top management... Unless you are stationed near headquarters Louisville, Kentucky.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Your employees feel empowered because of the satisfaction you guys provide to us. We believe you truly appreciate us so keep that up!

    Pros

    J&L really invests in its team. They have the latest technology to go to market with and state of the art sales training. I learned a lot about sales from the training course they offered. There is a lot of support from within the organization to help you to succeed at your job. There were times when the CEO would call me to download about the sales call I had just been on. They are very flexible and allow for a great work life balance. There was uncapped commission, so as long as you wanted to make money, you could. Overall it was a wonderful experience and I have recommended this company to peers looking for flexibility and a great career.

    Cons

    I don't have any cons to list, it truly was a great experience.

    Pros

    J&L marketing has been one of the best jobs I have ever had. Not only do they treat their employees with the highest level of respect, they make you feel comfortable and welcomed! The automotive marketing industry is extremely competitive. J&L is the leader and it is clear to see why! The support from the upper management, founder Scott, and all employees is exactly what anyone should look for in their employer.

    Cons

    There are no negatives everything has been excellent!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
