Field Manager (Current Employee), Toronto, ON – October 26, 2013
My work as a Field Manager would change from week to week. I work many different events depending on the client. I have worked for many brands such as Telus, Gillette, Nissan, Canada bread and many more. I have learned a lot about experiential marketing, both the field work and the behind the scenes work. This has allowed me to grow as an employee and – more... move up to my current position. This company has also allowed me to travel Canada and execute events with local employees. I have met lots of great people along with a few not so great employees but that's the best part about the job. I enjoy the ever changing work environment instead of the same routine from 9-5. – less
Lead Brand Ambassador/ On-site Manager (Current Employee), Kansas City, MO – March 24, 2014
Pros: it was a fun high energy atmosphere.
Cons: no healthcare and no guarantee markets would stay open
Working for GMR Marketing has to be one of the greatest jobs I have had so far. I am a person who enjoys interacting with customers, clients, and guests so it was an ideal position for me. I have gotten to meet so many fantastic people who also gave me great advice on my career choices, I got to meet some amazing celebrities, and became part of a team – more... that loved what they were working for. I enjoyed working with my groups and also managing some of the events. Although I have had an overall good experience with GMR there were some things that I would have liked to have like health insurance. I know that being a brand ambassador doesn't guarantee a job in the future but the people who have worked for so many year should have had an opportunity to enroll in some type of healthcare program. Other then that I have no complaints. It is a pleasure to work for the company. – less
Brand Ambassador (Current Employee), Miami, FL – September 16, 2013
Pros: dealing with people and the pay is good for a temp job
Cons: it is usually outside and it is very hot.
I do this job on nights and weekends for some extra money. It is a promoting company where we have to pass out free items in exchange for an email address. It was very exciting approaching and speaking to all different kinds of people.
Brand Ambassador (Current Employee), CA – May 28, 2013
Day consisted of setting up promotional booth, tents, tables, games ect. its a very fun outgoing environment and you have to keep a friendly attitude towards everyone that approaches your booth to welcome them and promote the product you are advertisement.
Work days are Wed-Sat in the evening, but you work 1-4 days, or 3-15 hrs a week. We meet up as a team and then head to the bar where we are executing promotion. You take surveys in the bar and hand out promotional items. It's a very easy job, but after 1.5 yr I find I am very burnt out. I can't complain when it pays my bills.
Account Executive (Former Employee), Milwaukee, WI – July 21, 2012
Cons: hours, upper management, frustration
Big event marketing company. Mostly just a number in a cubicle. Managed a sampling program for a 'big" soft drink company. Had teams nationwide which needed to be micro-managed. On call 24/7 and putting out fires that arose from field staff to upper management. Work/life balance not happening :(
