If you can talk, you can walk.
Brand Ambassador (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 29 March 2014
Good job for students or people looking for extra money, it's basically going to a grocery store and giving out samples - easy right? Think again, it's easy but don't take the job as a joke.
You're not only giving out samples but you also promote the brand/product and try to get people to buy it. You don't get fired for not meeting a quota every time but you do get punished and eventually fired for being lazy.
One of the hardest thing I would say about this job is setting up in the mornings, most storage rooms that keep your supplies are messy and a pain. Convincing people of trying the product is not that easy as well, because, well, some of them are picky and closed minded about trying new things.The job is very mentally straining.
You are supervised by one of your co-workers' which are called lead demonstrators, your boss does not supervise you but does check on you now and then. Mystery shoppers from brand companies also check on your work and review you.
At the end of the day you pack and clean everything up, go home, do a survey and done!
P.s. hours are low on this job the usual hours you get are 6/day for both Saturday and sun but sometimes you can get thrus/fri too.
Easy job once you get used to it, payed by hour, great for extra income.
Not very organised, sometimes you have to go to stores far away from you.
