    I worked at Showcase LA Events full-time

    Pros

    Good first job experience.
    Opportunity for networking and business travel.

    Demanding and discouraging.
    Ambiguous and unclear from the start.
    Not marketing/PR based, but rather sales focused.
    Received schedule day before shift.

    I worked at Showcase LA Events full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked with some great people, some were not that great, but that goes for any company you work for. But yes, more good people than otherwise.

    Cons

    They advertise the position as "marketing" but really you'll be selling food or merchandise instead. They tell you that if you do well you'll eventually get promoted and get your own business, but I never got to that point because I was exhausted. I worked a good 14 hours a day, including lots of driving time, having some early morning meetings, prep work, emails, etc. You don't get paid for the extras.

    I worked at Showcase LA Events (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There really isn't any pro's. This is a terrible work place. The only I guess positive thing was that the team members were extremely nice and everyone really got along.

    Cons

    Long tiring hours of standing and walking around. Long drives to Costco or Sam's. Dealing with rude annoying people who you had to approach. Push sales for a worthless products.

    Advice to Management

    When posting job ads, do not say this is "pr", you'll be doing "pr" tasks. This a lie. I work at PR agency now, and we don't stand at stores and sell products while approaching random people and pitching them on useless products. Or have to wear disgusting hair nets cooking food and serving it to random people.

    I have been working at Showcase LA Events full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Showcase LA offers a chance to learn hands-on marketing techniques and provides opportunities to grow personally and professionally. I'm new in the workforce being that I just graduated college; but the training, coaching, and knowledge that I have received in the last 2 months working here is unbelievable! I don't know if this will be where I choose to hang my hat for the rest of my life, but I am certain this kind of training will take me further in A career because I can utilize the skill-sets I am developing ANYWHERE!

    I read the negative reviews and I am happy I formed my own opinion and went through the interview process and started working; re-reading them now, its actually funny how exaggerated they are and clearly written by bitter previous employees and/or from people who never even got the job!

    This is hard work YES, you start entry-level YES, but if you put in the work you can absolutely see results in a very short amount of time.

    Cons

    The hours are long and working weekends was an adjustment for me; but management is flexible with requesting days off, you just have to communicate ahead of time.

    Advice to Management

    You have many employees past/present/future (including myself) who admire you and the hard work you put into YOUR business. Keep doing what you are doing!

    Pros

    Travel experiences and opportunities, fun job, variety, grown opportunity, fun people, team environment, Ashley is a wonderful boss

    Cons

    Exhausting. You have to be willing to put in 12 - 14 hours days and you are still working when you get home, sending emails and planning (without pay). The pay is a little low for the amount of hard work this job takes. They play favorites - for some it doesn't matter how hard you work, if they don't like you they won't promote you. Ever.

    Advice to Management

    believe in people. You told me I didn't have what it takes to run a successful business and kept me in entry level for half a year. I watched people get promoted and quit 2 weeks later while I worked my bum off. I left and now I run not one but two successful businesses. And you never even gave me a chance. You're passing up stars In favor of candles.
