    I have been working at SGV Marketing full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    A very high-energy approach to sales, the team builds off of one another's liveliness. The enthusiastic approach to work makes the task at hand all the more exciting, and the enthusiasm itself is honestly intoxicating. This environment in turn produces workers eager to perform in their own sales ventures.

    Cons

    If you don't consider yourself a people person, this job likely isn't for you.

    I worked at SGV Marketing full-time

    Pros

    Some skilled salespeople here who can teach you a thing or two about B2C sales

    Cons

    Where do I start? First of all this isn't a "marketing" company. The work is strictly door-to-door sales. So dont believe any of their job postings claiming to offer actual marketing positions. Before you even start your official tenure at this company, your "interview" will consist of you accompanying an existing salesperson on a FULL DAY of door-to-door sales in the most random neighborhoods across NYC's 5 boroughs. You will either be tasked to sell Verizon FiOs subscriptions to unsuspecting people. You won't get back to the office until well after 7pm. Regardless of how you perform that day, the "manager" will most likely extend an offer because they're desperate. Also -- don't want to call this company a pyramid scheme, but if it quacks like a duck, it's probably a damn duck. Stay away unless you genuinely want to pursue a career in field sales.

    Pros

    Well-meaning people who want you to succeed (so they could reap the benefits of the rewards).

    Cons

    A lot of expectations, and inadequate support. The training isn't bad, but it's too rushed. When walking on the field, potential customers can be paranoid and call police if there is no proof of identity or company uniform.

    Pros

    Good company to work for with benefits and commissions. Good work life balance. Love the travel benefits of marriott being able to stay in hotels and resorts at great prices.

    Cons

    Did not provide individualized help for reps having a bad month until they got to performance levels which sometimes was too late

    Pros

    The development and the corporate structure of the company make advancement very much within reach at all times, and create a very collaborative and supportive work environment.

    Cons

    The rate of advancement in the company is dependent upon the amount of time and work you decide to dedicate to it, so the time commitment can be a bit high if you're looking so propel through the organization. Definitely worth it though.

    The best thing about working here is the constant learning and growth opportunities. It was a very fun atmosphere with a lot of personal development. Best of both worlds!

    Cons

    Very challenging at times since we are always being taught new aspects of the company so you definitely need to have a fast learning curve.

    I worked at SGV Marketing

    Pros

    If your parents are badgering you about having a job you can say "yes Mom, I have a job" because, technically, you will. So long as you don't mind the 'fun challenge' of staying afloat without a paycheck.

    Cons

    This is DOOR TO DOOR SALES. 100% Commission. It's a scam. There are many articles about this place. Look up 'Devilcorp". They're nationwide. Are you looking for a job? Just something to pay the bills? Chances are you'll hit up craigslist, linkedin, or some other job network. They're all over these places. They're under the guise of entry level marketing. They all mention that they work with Fortune 500 companies. And if you apply they will hit you back the next day and desperately try to get you to come in for an interview. Word to the wise: real companies are not trying to woo you into working for them, it's usually the other way around.
