Marketing Representative Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Marketing Representative?

Marketing Representative in Columbus:
"Office morale is low, stress level high, management is awful."
Pros: Work in different areas like promotions, store, administrative work, and events, co workers are nice, work is fun if we get the chance to enjoy ourselves, hours can be good at times.
Cons: Management doesn't care, morale is low, stress level is high, don't receive any recognition from management, supervisor doesn't help or know what he is doing, scheduling is horrible, have been told by management that they would get rid of parts of my job if they could but they won't, bosses always ask us if we need help when we don't need it but are never found when we actually need help, 90% of the job is boring because management wont let us enjoy our job while were working it has to be work or play not both, Management has the "good to be king" mentality, the reps are the last know about everything, we learn stuff from other departments, store is empty most of the time, supervisor cares about other jobs that are not his, seems like they want us to quit, it seems like management lies to us most of the time, will invite other departments to our department party but don't invite the reps, gives new employees the weekend off but wont give employees with more seniority the weekend off,

Marketing Representative in New York:
"Great environment with limited opportunity."
Pros: Great environment, people, flexible schedule when needed. I have the ability to be creative in how I plan and coordinate events and trainings. For institutions that I work with. It works well with my religion as the hours are flexible and I can have time on Fridays to prepare for the Sabbath. I get to learn from many different people from around the globe about photography and lighting etc, experimenting with equipment- a lot of hands on time. My direct manager is great.
Cons: No room for growth, mostly lateral. I get pulled to hand out flyers at trade shows which is below my skill set because they are short handed on staff. I am also limited in how I can engage with administrations that I do because of certain rules. The travel schedule for the trade shows can be rough 9 hour days standing on my feet with only a 20 minute break while being monitored and criticized if not smiling at any given point. Upper management has little to no involvement with employees beneath unless there is a concern or a need- they do not engage at all.

Marketing Representative in Corona:
"Marketing Representative."
Pros: Interacting with people, being busy, having my work valued, being able to provide usable input, growth potential.
Cons: It is busy and sometimes unpredictable. Evening events can pose a challenge with family.
