    I have been working at PromoWorks part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I like the easy or reporting my job activity work days online and the setup for having my own website to community to PromoWorks.

    Cons

    I am assigned to the same stores and I get to know the employers and employees at that store because they depend on me to show up whenever I am scheduled to perform a demo for them.

    Advice to Management

    PromoWorks are a great company to work for and they are very professional in all that they do.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule. I can set my own schedule if there is work available. Pay is pretty good. I sample a variety of products each day, so it is not boring. If the weather is bad, I can reschedule a demo.

    Cons

    The biggest downside is the fact that I am considered a independent contractor and the company does not take out taxes, which is a real headache. There are also surprise audits to see how you are doing. Also the jobs schedule is erratic. Some weeks I work 4 days, some 3, or even just 1. Some months I barely work, and others are crazy busy.

    Pros

    Great group of coworkers, mostly flexible management. Company seems to be moving in a good direction and implenting new changes. Opportunities for growth. Good outlook for the future.

    Cons

    Since bought by new parent company, some confusion and disorganization. Hoping to see more involvement and support from them.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate should do more to demonstrate that they value their employees.

    Pros

    I enjoy working with people and managing a large number of events and taking care of a lots of details and having a lot of responsibility. I get to travel around my district and interact with various people. My Area Manager is really great to work for and I enjoy working together with her, other DC's and my ES agents as a team.

    Cons

    I think it should pay more for what I do. $10/hr. for running up to 300 events per month and managing over 100 agents is not that great.

    Advice to Management

    Pay should really be in the $14-$16/hr. range.
