    Pros

    I love working for BGP! Its not only a Sales Job i can make my paychecks GROW...but also i get to help kids nationwide continue to plays sports all year long at the same time! I believe in this sale which makes it easier to do! 😊

    Cons

    Sales is not a easy JOB but if you have a passion for children like we do at BGP then you can be good a team player and help kids out that need that extra help!

    Advice to Management

    We have an Awesome Sales Manager Rebecca that really goes out of her way to help us have fun while doing sometimes a hard JOB.... She helpedstarted the bizz along with a few of us from the beginning with the CEO...AKA.. "MR.BOSSMAN"and she dont forget how hard it can be rasing money everyday! She also will still grind on the phone with us between her other duties to get our goals met for the week! She is a great "TEAM PLAYER" One thing we could do again like the old days is give out some cool prize's for top reps each month.... appreciating hard work goes a long way!

    Pros

    Well what I can think of is:
    Fun environment.
    Music playing while working.
    Easy to get a job there.
    High energy the whole time.
    Decent incentive and prizes fot sales.

    Cons

    Most people are parolees or just got out of jail.
    A LOT of work.
    Difficult personal goals.
    Early work hours.
    You're a telemarketer, so there's that. It's not for everyone. Some people just won't make sales.
    The management and other workers don't really care about training you.
    Really, the only place to move up is like a lead position.

    Advice to Management

    Make the goals easier.
    Train the new employees better. don't just hand them a script and let them go.
    Don't play the same music over and over.

    Pros

    The PEOPLE! I loved everyone that I worked with including management and Mr Celaschi. The company is all about being positive, working hard, and having fun. I never had a job where I enjoyed going to work every day. If I didnt go back to college I would still be there.

    Cons

    sales work hours 630am-3pm (a little too early :) )

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!!

    Pros

    The opportunity to make a lot of money is definitely there. If you work hard and have a good attitude, you will love this job. Management is always willing to help reps and they put a lot of time into training and development. The company has a lot of perks, great benefits, spiffs, dinners and fun trips! The company spends a lot of money on marketing to bring in leads…

    Cons

    If you expect to come in and put in minimal effort, you won't do well here. You have to work hard and push yourself to really make good money, but when you do, the potential is unreal.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to train, mentor, and develop your employees. The individual training and feedback is definitely helping the reps improve. Continue to be transparent with any company changes.

    Pros

    just about none. Some of the other sales people are nice.

    Cons

    this is an awful place to work. The other review that said the positive reviews are fake is right. The "CEO" is a joke of a man. Please Google the name Joe Celaschi and see what you find. DON't WORK HERE!!

    Advice to Management

    Your time is up. Trust me, there will be more and more of these negative reviews.

    Pros

    The only pro I can come up with for this place is it is simply a job. It pays money. Some of the people that have come and gone have been cool people to meet, and most of the time it is a fun work environment. I'll give them that.

    Cons

    First of all, the good reviews on here are so obviously written by management and possibly the owner himself. It's both hilarious and disgusting that they seriously took the time to do that. You can't polish dog crap, sorry.

    This place is micromanaged like you wouldn't believe. They are constantly ripping off their employees and also the schools they work with, and are constantly coming up with loopholes and excuses to wiggle out of it.

    I have seen so many people get hired and fired within a week. They don't give new people a chance, and the employees that have managed to stick around the longest get treated like they're still brand new.

    Just don't work here if you can help it, this company is a total scam. To the schools and to their employees. I'm looking for a new job currently, something I should have done a while ago.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your employees like children. This isn't actually high school.

    Pros

    My experience at Big Game Promotions has been very rewarding and positive so far. The company culture is fun, everyone is friendly and supportive of one another, and we work hard raising funds for High School sports teams. We provide a free service to schools and deliver a great product as well!

    Cons

    Contacting businesses for support can be a challenge--not everyone realizes the importance of fundraising and keeping sports in schools. Sometimes overcoming rejection is difficult.

    Advice to Management

    The management team is supportive and attentive to all employees. They work hands on and believe in growth and training.
