    I have been working at The Gavel Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The family atmosphere and team members and supporting deserving charities. Most of the people here have worked here for at least 5 years and many are original employees having been here since the early 2000's

    Cons

    As with any event company, there can be long hours

    Advice to Management

    Do what you are doing

    Pros

    Working at The Gavel Group does give you exposure to doing auctions in Southern California. You will have the opportunity to work with FileMaker, and have an idea about how charity auctions are produced. Some of the people that work there are very cool.

    Cons

    They will work you to death! 40 hrs/wk is completely false, and their comp time is a complete joke. Their comp time structure basically has you working up to 4 event days (which are usually a minimum of 14 hour days) for one day off. You will not be paid overtime, and the boss constantly talks down to employees. Vacation time is hard to take, and don't even think about asking for an increase in benefits or salary.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people what they are worth, staff your business properly, and treat people with respect.
