This position has great potential it is a new company and requires lots of direction.
Event Assistant (Current Employee), Richmond Hill, ONJuly 24, 2012
Pros: experience, bonuses
Cons: not enough work, strickly on call basis
Finding out the correct location of the event and the quickest way of gettting there.
High learning potential - I learned alot of things from talking with the staff visiting the event and also while selling the product you learn alot about the various companies or sponsors who are giving the promotion.
Just one staff works directly with you so that – more... is very favourable because you get alot of direction. The hardest part of the job is keeping track of excessive orders and also making sales when it gets busy and making change.
The most enjoyable part is the interpersonal relationships which you develop along the way. – less

Long Hours Comission Only
Corporate Event Coordinator/HR Specialist (Current Employee), Anaheim, CAJanuary 15, 2014
If you put in the extra long hours, then you will go far. You lose your social life and will have weeks of constant driving without any pay. However, if you keep with it for a few months, you will be looking at a 400 to 900 weekly paycheck.

Entry-level
Sales Representative (Current Employee), Foothill Ranch, CAJuly 10, 2013
Pros: commission, weekends off, bonuses, promotions
Cons: long days, some overtime required
There is no experience needed so all new hires must start at entry-level. In my opinion, this is good because everyone has to prove themselves to be promoted. Plus, the company only promotes within. Seniority is important. There is lots of money to be made here. Commission is really good.

great opportunities for young professionals, previous experince not required, excellent promotion opportunities
Regional director/trainer/sales rep (Former Employee), Orlando, FLApril 8, 2013
Pros: fun, exciting, growing company, great resume builder
Cons: commission based, long hours, demanding of time
A typical day at work is hectic, busy, crazy and fun. One any given I would make well over 200 phone calls to current or potential cleints, meet with clients, present to potential clients, organize a corporate event, work a corporate event, handle customer service calls and a variety of other tasks.

Managment is extremely hands on in ensuring all employees – more... are trained properly. Promotions are based on hard work and dedication not seniority or experience.

The hardest part of the job is the amount of time required. Often you will work between 50 and 70 hours as your schedule is dependent upon the schedule of your clients. After you build a client base the hours get shorter but you definitely need to put in a year or two of full time work to build that base. Working on commission can also be challenging because while many weeks you earn excellent money but slow weeks can be frustrating. Employees must learn to balance time and budget money to be successful.

The most enjoyable aspect of the job was the social networking and the training. As a national trainer I was repsonsible for training new employees from all over the country and it was amazing to see these new employees learn, grow and excel in the business. – less
