Marcus Evans was my first "real" job after school. It was a fun job with amazing co-workers but It was definitely a challenging experience in a positive way. I had to learn how to negotiate with high level management (Presidents & CEOs) and maintain business conversations that would lead to the sale. I enjoyed the events industry cause I was able to travel within the company and meet my clients face to face. Overall, it was a very rewarding experience, both from a business and a personal perspective.
Full time employee (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 24 March 2016
This job will toughen you up if you are just starting your career. There is a lack of aspiring managers. They all like to bicker, and act like childish people. Don't expect to make a lot of money in your first few months IF you even last that long.
Senior Account Executive (Current Employee) – Toronto ON – 18 July 2014
A great place to work with outstanding senior management. Work to life balance was challenging for me b/c I was travelling to and from work 3 hours a day. Other then that I would recommend the job to anyone especially those who possess excellent communication skills.
i learned how to be more confident on the phone and more aggressive when tackling an objection. improved my communication skills with upper management. learned to talk to CEOs and Company owners as an equal.
the team is very helpful and resourceful and made it easy to adapt.
the hardest part was the lead generation and the penetration of gate keepers ( personal assistance/ secretaries)
Jr. Sales Executive (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 4 October 2013
In regards to Marcus Evans,
They promise high sales comissions, but have you are unable to sent information to prospective clients, they have to make a decision within 24 hours. Additionaly I was promised a higer salary then I wa given, and management is lacking. Overall the job is very monotomous.
An Account Executive position at Marcus Evans is not for everyone It requires a lot of hard work, adaptability and a strong will to succeed. A typical day starts off with a morning meeting highlighting the objectives of the day followed by an enthusiastic rush to get the day started.
They employ very talented people with the capacity to become some of the sharpest sales people in North America, if not the world. The managers are very helpful and understanding. They certainly make it a fun environment.
