    I worked at Zengo & Co part-time

    Pros

    They gave me free coffee.

    Cons

    Everything. This was back in 2016 when I had just graduated and was desperate for a job. I had a minor in marketing, and was compelled to apply when they advertised the position as a Junior Marketing Exec. As it turns out, this was completely false information, and they were actually looking for door-to-door saleswomen/men to pawn off cheap, shoddy cell phones to unwitting patrons. The "interview", if you can even call...

    I worked at Zengo & Co full-time

    Pros

    Staff very supoortive. Office location, sale exercises

    Cons

    It is door to door for people like direct energy and other companies. You have to get people to answer the door, let you in and hopefully agree to sign them on. I'm not sure why they keep saying that's the wrong company. All types of weather, on pubic transportation and late hours! You have to report back by the end of the night... 9pm. You have people over you who make money off your contracts. Everyone is just not...

    I worked at Zengo & Co full-time

    Pros

    The office off Mag Mile is bright, inviting and a buzz with activity, but that is the only pro.

    Cons

    I received a job as a Marketing Associate, I was told in the job spec that I would be coming up with creative advertisement strategies in order to sell a clients products. Sounded great. Then your real job is on the street direct selling products, nothing to do with marketing but they entice employees with buzz words. If you want a job beating the payment doing direct sales this is the job for you. Also the 'manager'...

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Zengo & Co

    Pros

    THERE ARE NONE. DO NOT APPLY OR EVEN GO TO THEIR OFFICE. Just horrible people. Not worth even talking to. Literally garbage.

    Cons

    This place is a horrible, horrible scam for college students. they post on LinkedIn about how they are looking for a marketing specialist but the truth is that it's a sales job where you go to to big stores and sell stuff to annoyed customers. Literally they make you pay for all of your expenses too. They call them "marketing events". In all reality it's your busting your butt to make the scammers money. The people who...

    I worked at Zengo & Co for more than a year

    Pros

    there's nothing good with this company, starting with the manager, the most Unprofessional person i've ever met (just ask any women who interviewed or worked there). I've learned everything you shouldn't do when running a business, like steal to your employees....

    Cons

    A waste of time and energy.

    Advice to Management

    leave the business and stop blocking smart people's opportunities, don't be jealous.

    I worked at Zengo & Co full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    i got to wake up everyday and go to work and waste my day and time

    Cons

    I worked at Zengo for a month and they were not honest with me from the beginning. First they are not open about that the job requires your to solicit sales literally at people's doors. 2. The managers will try to make it seem they make tons of money while they don't just to make you interested, They will tell you that in 6 months you will own your own company which is a LIE. THIS IS A MULTI LEVEL MARKETING...

    •Great people •If you're friendly and outgoing, then this is the perfect job •Positive Atmosphere •The opportunity provided at the company

    A lot of time is devoted for the company, but worth it.

    Pros

    I got out of the house for a bit.

    Cons

    Ok so first off, even though I find it clever that the company has decided to respond to people's reviews I'm here to clear the air a little bit. 1) they say that you are offered pay weekly. -Uhhh. No. I asked my hiring manager,(which is literally the same guy for everyone) how the pay worked. He said it was commission and salary based. Also the responder to the reviews said that they offer weekly salary. Uh no...

    Advice to Management

    Listen, I don't care about the traveling, about the walking around approaching random people all day... But seriously do not comment saying you explained everything when you only explained very vaguely about what you do. And please don't tell people that you offer a weekly salary when you clearly don't.

    Pros

    This place is absolutely terrible. They will make the title seem like it is a marketing positions, but it is a position with you walking around selling cell phones to homeless people. DO NOT WASTE YOUR COLLEGE DEGREE.

    Cons

    This place is using people. They bring people in and those people leave real fast once they realize what they got into. Do not waste your time with this pathetic joke of a company.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop lying to people. Just be honest. You screw up people, and make them come in for interviews for horrible jobs.
