Fun place to work
Pay is much better than minimum wage, and usually shifts are easy and fun as long as you are able to confidently approach customers and be able to communicate well.

All depends on the gig/project
The problem with any brand ambassador contract is you will work a short term. And then you have to apply again just like most marketing contract jobs.

If you work there Costco Roadshows they tend to keep you onboard. Just the Roadshows get sporadic at times depending on the region.

work isn't too strenuous after set up
hardest part is set up and tear down. Have to get display perfect for client, often very heavy work required. should be overtime after 8 hours per shift. Not enough shows in my geographical area.
Pros
contractor work so get home business tax benefits
Cons
long periods of standing, short breaks, some very long all day 113/4 hr shifts without overtime

Fun, fast-paced environment
I enjoy working here.

We did demos in Costco's all over Calgary and earned very good commission/bonuses.


It was an independent job, as the actual office was in Toronto.

Fun work with great money!
I have been working for them for about 2 years. Summer Campaigns are fun. You meet lot of people at festivals. Costco Roadshows are long hours- beneficial if you are looking for good money.
Great Management, as student I was looking for temporary work and got work every month!

Advancement opportunity if you are good at marketing. Company has been listed in top 50 Canadian Growing companies.

Branding different brands and products at Fervent Events
Had a great time promoting Freedom mobile for summer 2019. It was a great learning curve , working with different set of people, Activating trial sims, assisting in making sales. There was no set of Pressure on any of the Brand ambassadors to perform in a certain and strict manner, which made workplace always fun and enjoyable. Never really felt like work. On top, the payroll was always on/if not before time and there was a bonus on top of base pay for most of the events.

Overall, a great experience.

5/5

Love Working for Fervent
Fervent Events always treats me well. They have been a life saver to me during this difficult period in my life when work has been scarce. They have prioritized me so that I can make the money I need within the promotion event time line. Hours are long and hard and can be boring. When it's busy it's great and there is extra money to be made.

If you can't stand on a cement floor for up to 13 hours a day, you may not want to consider working here.
Pros
Like the management. They have always treated me well
Cons
Long hours standing on cement

Worked here a bit
Hours are good but not many breaks. And usually commissions give more money.

However be warned. You get a t4a form back. So it wouldnt be that bad if they actually charged your taxes. I paid no taxes. And now I'm stuck in a massive debt hole. So if you work here take money off your checks and put them away for t4 season.
Pros
Paid well
Cons
Long hours, untaxxed pay, workplace doesnt like the company, workplace always changes

Great job, lots of fun. It includes lots of change and variety in the types of roles you get to take on.
A fun and engaging job where you have the opportunity to lead groups and engage with many individuals in B2C marketing and promotional campaigns. The staff at fervent are extremely accommodating and professional which dramatically improves the work experience and interactment with colleagues.

Busy, in over their head
Fly by the seat of their pants, opportunity for growth, unclear expectations. Lots of autonomy, flexibility. Campaigns were pretty cheesy, and felt silly working on accounts for poor quality products that were nothing more than hype.

Could be a better atmosphere if recruiter didn't hire too many people
When I started working for Fervent Events, I thought it was an opportunity to have growth within me to expand, however I found that the recruiters just wanted to have a test of how the employee's will react to them with having more people on board, when I could of used more hours from them, it would of been better if I had made commission from them. I made myself to be of a value for them but they just took advantage of what I have done to try to help the organization.
Pros
gave me some satisfaction to keep my mouth shut.
Cons
Fervent Events built me up just to tear me down!!!!
