    I worked at O'Connor Marketing part-time

    Pros

    -staff seem friendly at first, but it became clear that the sales culture is also transferred to fake friendships -great office location in city -training and understanding of sales and goals

    Cons

    -they failed to pay me what was owed -you're essentially selling raffle tickets, doing cold call door-to-door sales for a non-tangible product in a lottery -no set breaks, so you're working for hours for little pay

    Advice to Management

    pay your staff what is owed

    I worked at O'Connor Marketing full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Opportunity for growth if you work hard and stay at the company. -Fun office atmosphere in mornings -- if you like loud music and very outgoing personalities. -Will help you to become a better sales person if that is what you want to do in your career.

    Cons

    -Dishonest during hiring process. -Will not hesitate to fire you -- at any point after your first day -- if you are not meeting sales targets, which are high. This is antithetical to how they say they will treat you during the hiring process. -Make you pay for your own public transportation when you are required to go a long way on trains for the job. -B2B marketing means walking around and going into random...

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring backpackers. You were dishonest about how cut-throat the process was. I have no doubt that you do turn some backpackers into good sales people. But that is the exception, not the rule. Your dozens of ads on backpacker job web pages make it seem as though this job is cut out for hard-working backpackers. It is not.

    I have been working at O'Connor Marketing full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    - Came into the job not knowing anything about sales and was given all the training and information I needed to get better - The opportunity for growth and criteria you need to hit to get promoted are clearly laid out for people when they start - The management team is extremely knowledgeable and effective at teaching people the things they need to know to help you move your own situation forward - The hours and days...

    Cons

    I live out west and although the office is easy to find the traffic I get in the morning can sometimes be unbearable For everyone who wants to progress to a more senior management role has the opportunity to do so but to get there you need to put in hard work and effort to get there

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!!

    I worked at O'Connor Marketing

    Pros

    No pros - it's a pyramid scheme but have to write twenty words

    Cons

    Pyramid scheme, scam young naive uni grads by selling the role as marketing associate or some such

    Advice to Management

    Unethical - legal loop hole to pay less than minimum wage

    Pros

    - learn crucial sales skills - improve your efficiency and discipline - great for students who need to improve their skills

    "Not getting paid"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I worked at O'Connor Marketing full-time

      Pros

      They do trainings really well. And the environment is fun

      Cons

      They can fire you just like that without telling what was wrong plus whatever days you've worked they drag it on n not pay you I've been contacting since last 4 weeks now. Either they don't reply and if they do they lingers it on.

      Pros

      Great social aspect! They are crazy nice to you right at the beginning!

      Cons

      Thankfully I was good at the sales so I managed to get about $14 an hour when I worked it out! 😂 The top sales rep makes maximum $19 when you take into account all of the training that you have to do (which is unpaid) then you have to come into the office for no reason every morning so that once your good enough you can train the next guy but oh wait do you get paid for this training? No! Haha joke of a company if you...

      I have been working at O'Connor Marketing full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      O'Connor Marketing was the first company to give me an opportunity in Recruitment, which is a role I had been trying to get into for such a long time, I feel very lucky to have been given an entry level position to learn as much as I can with a lot of area to progress within the company. All of the staff I work with are extremely positive always available to help and answer questions.

      Cons

      Although the office is easy to find and easy to get to, I live out west so I have to wake up rather early for a long commute.

      Advice to Management

      I think that all team members should receive sales training no matter what role they are in as I feel that was the biggest help, even for the role I am in!
