    I have been working at South Chicago Marketing full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I’ve been at South Chicago Marketing for a year now. Within this year I’ve learned so much about organizing myself (treating myself as a small business) from home life to work life, planning and growing a business. The focus on personal development from colleagues and management is the rewarding and positive than any other company I’ve been with. You’re not treated like a number but an actual person.

    Cons

    The hours can be extensive.

    I worked at South Chicago Marketing full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    None. This company is a scam and they need to stop trying to poach people. This should be illegal. Avoid!!!

    Cons

    This is a pyramid scheme that is for some reason legal.. avoid this place and save your time. They are crooks and this company needs to be shut down! They lie on job postings

    Advice to Management

    None. You’re going no where in a dead end job that is a glorified pyramid scheme.

    Pros

    Great people to be around on a daily basis. The enviroment in this office is unbelievable. On a daily basis the positive reinforcement that you recieve for the owner Joe Pavone is unmatched from my previous employer. For anyone looking to join this company, be prepared to think outside of the box and raise your bar on a daily basis. The reward for your hard work and commitment will certianly pay off.

    I worked at South Chicago Marketing full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I like that I am excited to go into work everyday. Part of why I enjoy going to work is because everyone is positive and supportive, partly because I am always learning something, but also because I am on a pathway to grow in a company. The work is challenging, I don't get results unless I work for them, but there is a lot of experience and support to keep me focused.

    Cons

    This career path was very different from my previous jobs. It was challenging to learn new skill sets but extremely rewarding. SCM also is very good at holding people accountable- at first I wasn't used to being actively developed and engaged, but with time I have come to prefer it!

    Advice to Management

    I really like when we organize events outside of work- lets do more! Keep up the good work!

    Great Atmosphere and high energy co-workers. Awesome owner and driven personalities.

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

    Pros

    I have been with the company for the better part of a year now and absolutely love to work here. I don't ever have to worry about not getting a paycheck and literally get to determine what everyone of my paychecks are! Aside from pay the bigger picture is in the opportunity to be in control of your own situation. This company is great for people who are motivated by being their own boss and want a unique working environment...

    Cons

    These aren't necessarily cons because I enjoy being challenged, however the work environment is very fast paced and ALWAYS changing! This company isn't for someone that needs a routine or pattern that is the same everyday. It's extremely competitive environment and for those that aren't necessarily competitive this could be an area that wouldn't be the most enjoyable.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 
    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at South Chicago Marketing

    Pros

    No pros whatsoever for this comapny

    Cons

    They promise you an operations management position in 12 months, great training program to be a manager. Everyone starts entry level for a reason here, it is the biggest scam you will be selling direct tv at menards. They lead you on and make it seem like you will make money and grow, although its all a lie and you will get scammed.

    Advice to Management

    Stop manipulating vulnerable people and recent college grads

    Thank you for taking the time to write a review on us. However, a pyramid scheme is an illegal business practice and we have been open for years. Also, employment is based off of experience and credentials which explains why you were an entry level employee. We also offer employees ...
