    I have been working at J&L Marketing for less than a year

    Pros

    Great for busy people looking for something part time. Compensation is good for someone right out of college. All employees have been kind, helpful and fun thus far. Opportunity for advancement.

    Cons

    It would be more motivating to be paid for travel instead of just compensated. Sitting most of the time during events, not a lot of movement.

    Advice to Management

    All BGS need to get more involved with their PC's to promote success of events. Love that J&L is starting to provide more opportunities for more participation.

    I have been working at J&L Marketing for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great opportunity for anyone in college, a people person and someone who likes to travel. Hone your presentation skills and meet people of all walks of life. Working in the automotive industry exclusively. Requires patience, lots of smiles and positive attitude. The company requires you to be accountable at all times and punctual.

    Cons

    Car dealerships pay big bucks for the promotions and if it doesn't go well, they take their frustration out on you. Customers complain to you about everything, so be prepared to listen calmly and direct them to someone who can help them. No overall complaints about the company but they could definitely pay more, considering you have to pay your own taxes. You don't end up taking much home. Events are mainly on... Saturdays 8:30-5:00pm so it is not sufficient as main source of income unless you don't have many expenses.

    I have been working at J&L Marketing part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I love the fact that I get to travel all over the country and get reimbursed for all of my expenses. The work is not challenging but you need a lot of patience and grace to get thru a promotion day. The staff is very nice an helpful. They will guide you every step of the way.

    Cons

    It's a contract job that does not guarantee you a work day. You cannot depend on this job for a solid income.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at J&L Marketing for more than a year

    Pros

    *Decent Pay *Opportunity to Travel *Friendly Management Staff *Schedule flexibility *Good training program and supervisors who are always accessible for question

    Cons

    *Depending on the region, promotion event opportunities may be scarce, making J&L an unstable source of income. *Limited earning potential. *Because of the number of PCs needed to service the entire country, it's evident that J&L, on occasion, unknowingly hires unqualified/unprofessional PCs who may damage the company's reputation with clients. *Virtually no men in PC positions.

    Advice to Management

    Hire professionals, not every cute college girl that applies.

    Pros

    Hands down, the best place to work. The entire PC team is awesome and very understanding when it comes to work/life balance. Definitely recommend it to any outgoing, energetic college student who wants to gain great marketing and sales experience and make a little extra money. The perks are awesome too!

    Cons

    Literally cannot think of one.

    Advice to Management

    You all are AWESOME. Could not ask to work with a better team.

    I have been working at J&L Marketing

    Pros

    The best reason to work for J&L is that they are flexible and will work around your schedule. For the most part you choose the weekends that you are available and they will try and find something for you. They compensate you for your travels and any expenses that you incur. You get to travel with all expenses paid for and get a lot of networking.

    Cons

    You will have to travel a bit and usually it is alone. Since you are "independently contracted" they don't take taxes out of your paychecks so you have to watch for that. Sometimes you can go a month without any work.

    Advice to Management

    The company is amazing overall and I wouldn't change a thing about it.
