    I worked at The Acquisition Group full-time

    Pros

    There's nothing good here, seriously.

    Cons

    You have to work your hardest to make money. Even when you do that, you find that you worked 8+ hours and made less than a kid working at McDonald's. It doesn't matter how driven you are or how many people you try to sell this stuff to. They've probably already heard the same speech from someone else before. Don't bother doing door to door sales, it's a waste of time. This isn't a marketing job, it's a scam.

    I have been working at The Acquisition Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I started as a Marketing Consultant in my last year of UBC and I couldn't be more happy with my decision to join the team. From the hands-on experience to constant leadership and growth opportunities, I was able to learn so much and be exposed to a community I never realized I needed. After graduating, TAG gave me the opportunity to shift gears and work amongst their HR team as the Communications Coordinator. This position has allowed me to explore numerous avenues from digital marketing to supporting various communication and marketing tasks throughout the whole company. Overall, my time here so far has been nothing but incredible. The works culture is great, everyone is more than happy to offer a helping hand, and I'm constantly learning and gaining amazing experience every day.

    Cons

    I have no complaints about my time at TAG so far!

    I worked at The Acquisition Group

    Pros

    They train you well and as an entry level employee it can be a great place to refine and grow your sales skills.

    Cons

    They say you will make so much for each signed contract. Then when you receive your commission check a large portion of the people you signed cancelled. They completely misrepresent your earning potential. This is essential a scam organization that uses you to market their products without paying you what was stated.

    Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. It is great to hear that you found our training process to be well-executed. At The Acquisition Group, one of our main goals is to provide ongoing development that benefits our team member's personal and professional advancement. We are concerned to hear of your feedback regarding your earning expectations. While we do offer various payment structures dependent on your role within the company, some positions have a performance-based structure which does include commissions and bonuses. The purpose of this earning opportunity is a reflection of our company’s dedication to giving individuals the autonomy to be as successful as they want to be, without limitations - financially or otherwise. Unfortunately, if a customer does not actually take the products or services you discussed, this would not be a completed sale and there would be no commissions payable as no income would be generated. As per your review, the extensive training we provide typically allows our team members and customers to gain a complete understanding of the step-by-step purchasing process, so these instances are limited. We appreciate your feedback and would like to learn more about your concerns and how we can improve. Please contact hr@theacquisitiongroup.com or at 1 866 878 6567 at your earliest convenience.

    I worked at The Acquisition Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    None, this is a pyramid scheme that preys on young driven people.

    Cons

    This place counts on lots of juniors coming through so that they can take a percentage of their sales. They create a culture where people who leave are "losers" who don't work hard enough but as someone who actually did well here and made good money, I can tell you this is inaccurate. You work ungodly hours and most people end up earning less than minimum wage. They are particularly exploitave of immigrants who don't have many employment options.
